Southwood Church of the Nazarene is located at 8201 Raytown Rd, Raytown, MO 64138.

We meet Sundays at 9:45am for Sunday school and 10:45am for worship service.

Because of health advisories for COVID-19, we have modified our meeting method to accommodate social distancing concerns.

We maintain a sanitized facility and practice safety guidelines. We humbly ask for you to join us in following the safety guidelines of health professionals.
What to expect

  • To wear a mask the entire service
  • There will be worship through singing, preaching, and tithing. If you are uncomfortable with any of these happening indoors, join us virtually.

Sanitizing procedures

  • Restrooms and other high-touch areas like doors and pews will be cleaned each week
  • Hand sanitizer is available in restrooms, in the foyer, and sanctuary
  • Drinking fountains are not available for use
  • Sanctuary doors will remain open at all times to increase ventilation

Guidelines for indoor worship

  • Join the worship service virtually if you have a cough, fever, or shortness of breath
  • Please arrive early so the flow of people can be more easily facilitated
  • Masks are required at all times while indoors (for those over 2 years of age). If you are not able or willing to wear a mask, join the worship service virtually. If you don’t have a mask, we will have one available for you
  • Enter/exit the sanctuary one family unit at a time
  • Practice social distancing (stay at least 6 feet from other people)
  • Someone will be available to greet you and give direction about where to sit
  • Pews will be marked off to help with social distancing
  • When entering the sanctuary, fill the seating as far toward the front as is available. When exiting the sanctuary, please allow people toward the back to leave first. (These practices will help the flow and avoid unnecessary passing of others in close proximity) 
  • Please refrain from hugging and shaking hands with others
  • Restrooms are available to one individual or family unit at a time. Someone will be there to provide guidance about when a restroom is available
  • There will be a box near the sanctuary doors in which tithes and offerings can be deposited
