WACC's Response to COVID-19: A Message From John Riley & Weekend Gathering Update

Dear Friends,

As you've probably experienced, it has been quite a week. Throughout our world, the effects of COVID-19 (known as Coronavirus) have caused great concern and raised anxiety for many. In the midst of health battles, confusion and fear, we as a church family want to prayerfully respond in ways that protect the vulnerable in our community, operating out of a spirit of wisdom and love, not fear. As the situation has developed in California, I wanted to share with you an update regarding how WACC will be carrying out ministry in the weeks ahead.

On Wednesday, March 11, Governor Newsom announced that California public health experts have issued an updated policy for gatherings with 250 or more people to be canceled or postponed to protect public health and slow the spread of the virus. Because of this policy, there are some shifts to how ministry will be taking place in the near future at WACC.

The first is that starting this Sunday, all of our worship services will transition from "in person" gatherings to online services at www.wacc.net for the rest of March. Even though we won't be together in one room, we will still have the opportunity to worship each Sunday in our homes across our community, as churches have done throughout the centuries.

This Sunday, our worship leaders will continue to lead us in singing to our great God, and then I am going to share a unique message of hope from God's Word that is specifically crafted for a week like this. I want to encourage you to go online and to worship with your loved ones during the same time you normally worship at 8am-Heritage, 9:30am, 11am, or 5pm. Additionally, our WACC team has prepared resources for you to utilize during and after the service. These include activities for kids, discussion guides for families, prayer tools, and community group questions. All of these resources will be available at www.wacc.net.

The second shift taking place is that all other on-campus ministry gatherings that normally take place during the week will be postponed or transitioned to being offered online for the rest of March. Each ministry leader will reach out to their groups to share more information on the impact this will have.

Even though the mode of ministry is shifting significantly in this unique season, we remain committed to our vision to bring Jesus to people and people to Jesus. We are in the process of connecting with each of our Global Partners and Community Partners to look for fresh ways that we can support them, and we want to support you as well. If we can pray for you specifically for any need, or if we can serve you in this unique time, please don't hesitate to share your request online at www.wacc.net.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation, and will keep you informed. As updates become available, we will send emails, update our website, and use social media to get information out. Please join me in praying for those affected by this virus, in giving to support God's work in this world, and in serving those in need around us.

In the words of the apostle Paul, I am praying that “the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” I look forward to worshipping with you this Sunday.

God bless you,

John Riley
