Important announcement for Worship Services and activities. Watch us on-line live at 11:00
Dear West Highland Family,
The WH Action Committee, established by the Elders last week, has monitored events, guidelines and directives from our medical and political leaders regarding COVID-19. After prayer and discussion, the Action Committee is encouraging the West Highland family to be relationally and virtually connected but physically separated until April 5. This is in keeping with the directives issued by our federal and provincial governments. To reinforce this the following decisions have been made:
- Sunday Worship will continue as a full on-line worship service at 11:00 a.m. up to April 5, 2020. Last Sunday we had 323 online connections, where we estimate at least 500-600 people joined you and your family in worshipping. The feedback we have received has been very positive, so please be sure to join us for our online service.
- All other activities, ministries and programming occurring at WH’s facilities are suspended up to April 5, 2020. Those ministries that can be operated virtually via social media are encouraged to continue.
- All ministries and programming that occurs outside our facilities are suspended up to April 5, 2020. Those ministries that can be operated virtually via social media are encouraged to continue.
A small skeletal staff will continue to work in the church offices but the majority of our Pastors, Ministry Directors and Administrative staff will work at home until April 5, 2020.
In the next few days we plan to share with you more information about online ministry opportunities that you can take advantage of. Make sure to check out our website and Facebook pages for regular updates. These are challenging times that present us with new opportunities to minister to others. Let’s be in prayer and look for these opportunities to shine in the darkness.
Please pray for the WH Action Committee as we continue to meet to seek God’s will and His wisdom. We will continue to communicate updates to you over the coming days and weeks. If you want to communicate with the Action Committee please email us at email@example.com
