COVID-19 Updates and Plan

You are welcome to worship with us at Western Heights.  As we continue our reopening plan, we encourage everyone to join us for worship from home (via live stream) or at the building (adhering to the protocols).  You are free to use either option.  If you would like to and feel comfortable, please join us for worship at the building.  If you have concerns about attending in person at the building, we ask you to join us from home.  Either way, we’re glad you are worshiping with the Western Heights family.

We want you to know that the areas in the building being used are being cleaned and disinfected each week to prepare for our Sunday morning worship times. We have also installed high-grade filters in the HVAC system.

Please understand that as things progress, we may be able to open up more fully or we may need to pull back or alter our protocols.  This is new territory for us and we simply don’t know what the future holds.  We appreciate your prayers and patience.
