Happy Friday, Westheights! This week, someone asked about when I think we will be back to meeting together as a church community. This is a great question to which there is no clear answer. I can tell you that we continue to monitor the situation closely and are thinking through a variety of scenarios. In the meantime, this is a season where we can try some new and creative things. For this season of (forced) ingenuity, I am thankful.
1. Virtual Foyer
One of the things we miss about meeting on Sunday mornings is the opportunity to connect in our foyer. This Sunday we want to try to create a virtual foyer by using Zoom so that we can see and say ‘hi” to one another after the service. In case you are unaware, Zoom allows us to connect using video – so we can see and hear you! To join in, simply click this link.
2. WESTHEIGHTS CONNECTIONS
During this time of physical distancing, it is especially important to maintain relationships with one another. To help facilitate this we are looking to create a contact list that we can make available to our Westheights church family. This list will be password protected and will only be made available to Westheights people who are currently on our mailing list. At this time, we do not anticipate that we will be updating it once it has been distributed. This is entirely optional, and you must opt-in for your information to be included.
Fill out the form with your name and email address and/or phone number. The deadline for submission is Wednesday, May 13, 2020.
Thanks for keeping the communication lines open!
3. NEW ONLINE DEVOTIONAL STUDY
On Monday, May 11 we begin a 10-day devotional called Awesome Relationships, written by Rick Warren. Please click here to join!
4. PICTURE OF THE WEEK: HELPING HANDS
Last week we decided not to have a photo challenge, and many of you expressed disappointment. So the pics are back! This week send us a picture of “helping hands” (however you interpret that) to firstname.lastname@example.org by next Wednesday, May 13, and we will include it in our May 17th service.
5. LOOKING FOR WORSHIP MUSIC?
A few weeks ago we asked you to share with us your favourite worship songs and quite a few people shared that their favourite songs are hymns. So, this week’s Spotify and YouTube playlists, based on your selections, are hymns, both classic and new. Hope you are inspired and encouraged by these traditional and contemporary hymns.
