In consideration of the public health concerns related to COVID-19, we will not be hosting services or events on campus during the month of March. This is a dynamic situation that is changing every day, but we do want to address some questions you may have at this time. As new information develops, we will update this page with answers to commonly-asked questions.
Is WHFC gathering for services this Sunday?
We have decided to cancel all scheduled WHFC events until further notice, including Sunday worship services, in order to minimize the risk of illness and protect those who are entrusted to us. This includes Growth Gatherings, MOPS, BSF, Support Classes, Ready to Wed, and Youth and Children’s events. We invite you to catch our latest messages here !
Why have services been canceled?
Our heart during this time is to lead from a place of
- Faith, not fear
- Hope, not hype
- Action, not apathy
- Prayer, not paranoia
We are loving our neighbors by protecting our neighbors, and this is what love requires of us in this season.
Are there any online resources available to help me and my family grow at this time?
Yes! Each week, we are thinking through how to serve up valuable content that engages the whole family. Please visit our Church at Home resources page for an up to date list of resources! We also invite you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay connected and informed through out the week!
How should I respond to COVID-19?
Though situations like these can stir up fear and anxiety, God is sovereign over all things, and our ultimate hope is found in Jesus.
Here are a few practical things you can do to love your neighbor during this time:
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of your elbow.
- Send them a text, or get on a phone call to encourage your friends.
- Take a meal or letter of encouragement to your neighbor.
- Offer to make a grocery run for someone in the “vulnerable” category.
- Pray for those affected by this virus and for the unique circumstances of our community.
