Reopening the church has been deliberately slow
by choice; and we are little different than the other churches in the River Valley.
The appropriate word that I am hearing from other pastors seems to be “caution”
in regards to reopening. Many of us [the pastors] are concerned that the
Pandemic will worsen to the point that churches may be required to close indoor
worship services again. If so, for Westwood, I suppose it will be back to the
parking lot for low frequency broadcasting of our service.
Most of the churches have just reopened
their Sunday Schools, and like Westwood, the Wednesday night programs have not
yet surfaced; or their groups have taken an online and/or outdoor focus.
