Hey there Westheights! While it hasn’t exactly been business as usual around here, your church staff has been busy exploring some new (and rediscovering some old) ways of helping us stay connected. Weekly FYI Friday blog posts are one of those new ways to keep us connected. Here are just three things we want to share with you today:
1. Sundays Online
Last Sunday we moved our time together to our YouTube channel and had a great experience. We prayed, had a teaching time, and bonded over the fact that many of us were enjoying doing church in our pyjamas. For those who tuned in live at 10:30, one of the neat features was the chat area where we could interact with each other despite the fact that we weren’t physically together. You’ll want to tune in this Sunday at 10:30 am to see what we have in store for you this week! (Here’s a teaser of what’s coming up!)
2. Online Bible Study
While we do miss being together, it doesn’t mean that we can’t grow together. And so this coming week (March 22-29) we invite you to participate in an online Bible study with your fellow Westheights friends. This link will take you to the YouVersion Bible App, where we’ll all go at the same daily pace, reading scripture and a devotional reading, and then discuss what God is teaching us along the way. This 7-day study, “A Journey From Worry to Confident Hope” by N.T. Wright, is based on the Lord’s Prayer.
3. E-Transfer Giving is Here!
We have been asked about how people can continue to give their offering to Westheights during this period when we aren’t able to meet in person. In response, we have implemented e-transfer giving!
To give in this way, simply use your bank or credit union online banking system (either on a computer or a mobile application) to send an e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org. No security question (or answer) will be required.
For first time e-transfer donations, please include your contact information in the optional message area so we can ensure that you get a tax receipt.
Stay In Touch
You can stay in the communications loop regarding this (and so many other things) in several ways:
