REOPENING WHBC - Phases 2 & 3

As of June 19, 2020

Phase 2 - July 5

  • Worship Services
    Our worship service formats have worked very well for the past several weeks. We have been encouraged by the way this structure has enabled us to honor current public health policies and utilize our building in creative ways. Therefore, we plan to continue our live worship gatherings in the Phase 1 format. “If it ain’t broke...”. Our service will continue to be available online each Sunday morning for those who are unable to join us for a live service.

    Continue current schedule:
    8:00a - in Central Park
    9:00a - in Worship Center (Main Auditorium)
    10:30a - in Activity Center (Gym) with a time of worship in music at the end of the service

  • ABFs
    Beginning July 5, ABFs can meet in one of two spaces (Central Park or Dining Room) in our building for their regular weekly class time. These meetings can take place any time during the week except during our Worship Services.

    ABFs leaders must contact the church office to schedule a weekly day and time slot and receive instructions on how to access the building and other specifics such as parking.
  • Children (JAM City) and Youth (New Heights)
    JAM City weekly lessons will continue to be available on the website.

    Youth will continue to meet in person Sunday evenings (in the back lot) from 7-8p. Wednesday night youth group takes place, via Zoom, from 6:30-8p. Pastor Josh has other activities available. Contact him (tuttle@whbc.org) for details.


Phase 3 - August 9

The anticipated plan is laid out below, but we will continue to monitor public health recommendations and adjust our policies and procedures as needed.

  • Worship Services  - TBD
  • Christian Education (includes Children’s Department, Youth and ABFs)
    Beginning August 9, we will open Christian Education on Sunday mornings in some form. We are constantly evaluating our building logistics and current public health policies to create an effective plan that will safely and wisely bring our operations back to some sense of normalcy.
Join us this Sunday for worship – 9:00am and 10:30am
