Covid-19: How To Serve April 29, 2020

We serve and live on mission as an act of worship in love to God who has gone and continues to go before us. We see this brightly in the life, death, and resurrection of Christ. This compels us to love in the way Christ loved us.

Many of you have been asking how you can best love and serve our church body and our community during the COVID-19 outbreak.

CARE FOR THE BODY

In addition to helping those in your immediate circles, we have set up a Google form for you to use to let us know if you want to serve our body at Westover. The form will also allow you to indicate if you have unmet needs that Westover may be able to help with. Let us know if you can help serve the body.

We also recommend partnering with the following local ministries and organizations in our local community. Each of these organizations are leading the way in coordinating efforts to care the underserved (elderly, socioeconomic poor, refugees/immigrants).
