Regathering Sunday | Phase 2 | Update
Due to the rise in Covid19 cases we have made the decision to scale back our on-campus services to our 9:30am service only. To stay compliant with the CDC Guidelines we will only be able to have 300 people attend this service. We will also require face coverings. You can continue to join us for our 9:30 AM Livestream service each week via the church app, Facebook Live and YouTube. In order to control the numbers you will need to RSVP for your service time. Please visit gowestwood.org/regathering to reserve your worship time and to see more details.
House of Prayer @ Home Each Thursday
Prayer is one of our most powerful tools, and since we are unable to meet together in person to pray, we will be hosting a weekly time of prayer that you can attend from your home, each Thursday at 8:00PM. There will be a time of open prayer and encouragement for all via Zoom from 8:00 – 8:20PM, followed by a time for individual prayer appointments from 8:20 – 9:00PM. This is for anyone needing encouragement and prayer. You can sign up and have one of our prayer partners’ call and pray with you visit gowestwood.org/pray for more details. We would love for you to join us.
