CHURCH BUILDING UPDATE
Our church building will remain closed for public gatherings through JUNE 7. A full reopening plan is in development and more information will be released as we continue to monitor the impact of the pandemic in our city. While our church building is closed, W highly recommends carrying on and participating in regular scheduled W events online via Zoom Video Communications, if possible. You will need a computer, microphone, and/or camera. This is so we can persist in our personal spiritual growth as well as stay connected as one body. Please go to https://app.espace.cool/Public/PublicEventRequest/13440/348 to make an event reservation for Zoom. Our Administrative Staff will then schedule your Zoom event. Please check your e-mail Inbox or Spam folders for reservation confirmations from eSPACE. Continue to visit https://www.whcchome.org/en/covid19 for updates on how W is responding to COVID-19. Thank you for your patience and prayers as we continue to worship together as a church online!

CHURCHWIDE PRAYER MEETING l THIS WED, 7PM - 8PM l ZOOM
The coronavirus pandemic happening in our city, country, and world has been a bewildering time of trial. As Christ-followers, we have a sacred responsibility to intercede and pray. Our sessions will be recorded so individuals, families, and small groups can join as schedules permit. The Lord Jesus taught us to watch unto prayer, lest we fall into temptation. We urge every member of the W family to pray. Pray with us at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88545343989 from 7PM – 8PM on the first Wednesdays of each month, and 7PM – 7:30PM for the remaining Wednesdays of each month.
Please visit https://www.whcchome.org/en/covid19 to access our latest prayer meeting slides. The link is located in the Left Column.

Visit our WKids Page on our church website. We’ve created a “Parents’ Resources” section at the top right corner of the page. Click “Lessons download” and use the password provided in the weekly email for all your child’s Sunday school lessons and other helpful resources. For newcomers and visitors, please click the button right below “Parents’ resources” section to email us and request access.
We encourage parents with young kids to gather a few of your child’s friends together with their parents in Zoom for 30-40 minutes. We had great turnouts for the past two weeks! If you have questions on how to teach, please contact your child’s coordinator or email [email protected]. We would love to help you in any way we can.
We also hope you can send us your photos, screenshots, activity sheets and suggestions to [email protected]. With your permission we can post WKids art, worksheets, and photos on our “Parents’ resource” page to encourage and help one another. We will also keep track of the kids submissions so they can trade it in for a special prize when W reopens.
Our Family Ministry Pastor, Ps. Estella has emailed our parents a homemade video called: “The Power of a Good Routine.” We hope this resource helps families build a good schedule and overcome the disruption caused by COVID-19. Our Family Ministry supports your family and would like to hear any feedback you may have. Please visit https://tinyurl.com/recocfm to give us your thoughts and questions. We greatly appreciate it!
Our mission is to love God, His church, and the world because He first loved us.
