Update from the Elders

We hope that each of you has been thriving in your relationship with the Lord during these tumultuous times.  Though it has been difficult to be apart, worship, whether virtual or in person, keeps us united.

God has opened doors for us as a result of our church’s reinvention resulting in:

*Increased impact with more than 500 viewings of our worship service each week from March 15th to June 14th
*Increased visibility with 1,322 viewings of our virtual choir
*Live streaming of worship services
*Updated website with resources we offer our community
*Greater attendance at our virtual prayer meetings
*Vibrant, interactive learning through Kids Journey online
*Virtual Home Groups
*Virtual book studies
*Virtual new members class with seven who will join Westgate this fall
*Regular outreach team meetings
*Numerous outreach activities highlighted in Ryan Cassel’s presentation last Sunday
*Celebration of our recent graduates through a car caravan
*Formation of a Kids Connect team planning kids/family events
*Implementation of Reopening Task Force safety policies

Because of your generous financial and faithful prayer support we are able to move forward as planned.  We look forward to the following:

*Eric Campos’ being on staff
*An elders’ retreat focusing on our role in developing Westgate’s outreach and discipleship.
*The exploration of educational opportunities regarding race relations
*An outdoor service in conjunction with our indoor service
*Outreach with another church
*A virtual adult Sunday school class
*The continuation of virtual Sunday morning prayer
*Multiple kids and family events
*Virtual missions conference
*Virtual AWANA

Let us stay close to each other by sharing the Sunday morning worship experience, attending Home Groups, joining in prayer times, engaging in outreach activities and initiating personal connections.  We welcome any ideas that will help unite us while we socially distance.

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Ephesians 3:10, 21

Serving Christ,

The Elders
