KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As organizations continue to work to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, one of the Kansas City area’s largest churches is switching to online worship.

In a release Friday morning, United Methodist Church of the Resurrection Senior Pastor Adam Hamilton said the church would switch to online worship for the next several weeks.

“The safety and health of our congregants, staff and volunteers is of utmost importance,” Hamilton said in the release. “Our decision to have online worship only is an expression of our faith.”

Hamilton said the church’s decision — which marks the first time in 29 years the church won’t hold public worship services — is meant to save lives and prevent the spread of the disease.

The online worship services will happen at the same time as public services would have happened. The online services will be led by musicians and pastors for each of the church’s five locations.

More information is available on the church’s website.
