We love seeing you on campus.
With Eastern Jackson County in Phase 2.5 of their recovery plan, we are happy and excited to let you know that we are ready to begin opening our campus back up. We’re going to open in phases, with Phase 1 being two on-campus worship services: Thursday, 7:00pm and Sunday, 9:30am. Both services are being held in our main worship center throughout June and July.
Reservations are recommended so that we can plan to stay within occupancy limits. Please click on the link below each week to register your household for your preferred service time. Please do your best to arrive together and please remember that all children and students will need to remain with their parents for the duration of their time on campus.
With the release of Phase 2.5, that anyone who visits our campus for any reason is required to wear a mask their entire time in the church buildings and, when not keeping a 6 foot distance, in the parking lots.
You can still join us online!
We would love for you to attend on campus but safety for each person is priority. We are planning for a clean, safe return and are mindful of health needs and issues in preparation for a non-touch experience. If you are a high-risk individual or show any symptoms of being sick, please continue to worship with us online.
We’re still focusing on providing a great experience for our online worship services. There are three different ways you can join us online. You can join us on Facebook Live Thursdays at 7pm or Sundays at 9:30 and 11am, on Vimeo starting at 8am Sundays or get together with your friends, family or neighbors in your home to watch in a smaller community. We look forward to seeing you there and worshiping together with you from home!

What can I expect when I arrive on campus?
- When you arrive, we ask that you park in the southeast parking lot. Please arrive 10 minutes prior to service and remain at your car until the doors of the building open.
- To allow time for our staff to sanitize the space, doors to the building will open approximately 10-15 minutes prior to service start time.
- Once you exit your car, please check-in with a greeter at the main entrance and then head straight into the worship center for worship service. Please practice social distancing of having at least 6 feet in between each family.
- Guidelines request that no hugs, handshakes, or fist-bumps take place at any time on campus.
- For the time being, no bulletins will be passed out. If you desire to take notes, please bring your own pen and paper or use your phone.
- Services will be less than an hour.
- We ask that you use the restroom prior to coming. Restrooms will be available if needed.
- At the end of service, we will dismiss by rows.
- Please practice social distancing when exiting the worship center and going to your vehicle.
Why are reservations recommended?
In order to create a safe and spacious environment, we will have limited seating with adequate space in our worship center. We are following Jackson County’s guidelines regarding capacity. Because of the size of our building and number of individuals that call Blue Springs Christian Church their home, reservations help us plan for your arrival and determine when we are at our maximum capacity. We ask that you register for each week you will be attending.
What does Children’s and Student Ministries look like?
We will continue to offer our Children’s and Student Ministries in a digital format on our website, Facebook, and Instagram. Children and Students are encouraged to attend weekend services with their families either on campus or online. During the month of July, we hope to have a few outdoor events for children and students to attend.
Will we pass trays?
We will have pre-packaged communion available for all on-campus attenders that we ask you to pick up on your way to your seats. Instead of passing offering trays, we encourage you to use our new offering boxes placed at each entrance or continue to give online or via mail.
What precautionary measures are being implemented?
- Seats have been removed from the worship center so that all seating groups are separated by a distance of at least six feet.
- No offering trays will be passed. You can continue to give online or drop your offering in the new contact-less boxes inside the worship center.
- Between services, seats, restrooms, water fountains, all countertops, doors and handrails will be sanitized.
- Doors will be propped open at the beginning and end of services to avoid contact with door handles.
- No handshaking, hugs, or fist bumps while on campus please.
- Assigned parking lots based on service times will be utilized.
Will food or drinks be available on campus?
At this time, the Coffee House is closed and we ask that you refrain for bringing food and/or beverages into the worship center building.
Are masks required?
Per the Jackson County Guidelines and Recommendations, masks are required for the entire time anyone is in one of the church buildings and, when you are not keeping a 6 foot distance from others, in our parking lots as well.
Are groups meeting on campus?
At this time, groups will meet online or in homes. Please reach out to our Minister of Engagement at email@example.com if you’re interested in joining a digital small group.
Will the weekday devotions still be on Facebook?
For the month of July, we’ll have a devotion on Facebook at 12:15 each Wednesday.
Who will have access to the registration lists?
We will be providing the registration lists to our staff and, as needed, key volunteers. Should there be COVID-19 cases that impact our church, we may provide the list to the local Health Department for assistance in ensuring all impacted individuals are contacted and provided medical attention as needed.
Regardless if you return to the campus or continue to worship with us online, God’s got this! Ministry doesn’t just happen in one location. It happens as you love and care for those around you with Christ’s love
