Update from the Elders 11/20/2020

As Elders, we recognize that the number of Covid cases have reached critical levels. Several of our members have been affected. One of our members is currently in ICU, which has already reached full capacity. We want each of our members to act responsibly toward themselves and others and continue to use best safe practices. If you are concerned or at risk, the Elders ask that you participate in our services on-line only. If you feel sick or suspect that you may have been exposed to any illness, we ask that you stay home.

There will be no services this Wednesday night as previously planned. Sunday morning classes are cancelled for the next 2 weeks. We will continue to monitor the situation. We will still offer our regularly scheduled Sunday morning service in person and on-line at 10:00am. Wednesday night services will resume on December 2nd.

We do not want Westgate to be shut down, therefore we ask that all participants use masks and practice social distancing. While we are very concerned with the physical health of our flock, our primary concern is the spiritual well-being of the congregation. We believe in community and the power of prayer. Please be in prayer for our members who are affected by this disease. Please pray that God will heal our land and strengthen the body of Christ. May God bless you, your families, and the Westgate congregation.

Update from the Elders 7/3/2020

The eldership would like you to know that, given the Governors new declaration that, we will still be having church in person on Sunday.
While the governor had not required masks for worship he has recommended it. We agree and if you are comfortable in attending, we recommend that you come to worship this Sunday with a mask on. If you do not feel comfortable in attending service, please take part in our worship time by watching online.

Dear Westgate Family,

We may not remember the spring of 2015 or 2018, but all of us will likely remember the spring of 2020. This has been an extremely disruptive and chaotic year and we know that in the midst of all that has been going on, one of the things we have missed most is the opportunity to be together in the same place and to worship together. We know that not everyone is in a place, at this point, to be comfortable returning to worship together with everyone and we want you to know that we understand that, we respect that and we want to affirm you in that decision. For those that do feel comfortable, and that is a significant portion of Westgate based on your survey responses, we want you to know that there has been a great deal of time spent in prayer, consideration and discussion regarding a return and we are happy to announce that we have a plan in place that will support the return to worship in the auditorium together for those who are comfortable doing so beginning this Sunday, June 14th.
There will be a number of new things involved in order to meet the standards set out by the Governor of Texas for our return to meeting together, so we want to review those key aspects:

We look forward to having everyone back with us, but we want to make sure that we keep our members as safe as possible. We know that not everyone will be comfortable returning to worship physically together yet, and we understand that, respect your decision and very much want you to continue to join us as we stream our worship together.

In His Service,

The Westgate Elders and Deacons
