UPDATE: MARCH 19
In line with recent recommendations, we believe it is the best course of action to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic by suspending all gatherings of 50 or more at Westwood Church between March 15 and April 5. We have made this decision to promote the health and well being of those in our community, especially the most vulnerable. As Christians we are called to love our neighbors, put down our preferences for the sake of others, and serve the most vulnerable. This precaution is being taken so that we can live out the commands of Scripture to love others. Let’s live out our call as Christians to love others in all the tangible ways we can. People around us are afraid, ill, experiencing financial hardships and pressures, and a variety of other challenges. In the midst of these difficult times, let us continue to pray for and sacrificially serve others, place our trust in Jesus, and walk forward in faith that this pandemic is under God’s meticulous sovereignty. The gospel is good news for a broken and sick world. Let us believe that message deeply and proclaim it boldly in the days to come.
We are actively monitoring the advisories from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) as well as the BC Centre for Disease Control. Currently, the risk assessment to British Columbians is low. Our responsiveness will increase if and when it is advisable to do so.
As a church family moving into the Easter Week, also known as the Holy Week, we want to REMEMBER, GIVE THANKS, and PARTICIPATE. Over the course of this next week, let's participate in a spiritual exercise that unites us even while we are separated. This exercise will remind us that Jesus, the Lamb of God, has delivered us from sin and given us spiritual victory in life and in death.
Between Sunday, April 5 and Wednesday, April 8, read Exodus 1-11. Do this in several sections on your own, with your spouse, or with your children. The deliverance of the Israelites from Egypt is the backdrop to the Passover Meal.
On Thursday, plan a special dinner. At the start of the dinner, before you read Exodus 12 and John 1.
As you eat and drink, celebrate the truth of what Jesus has done for you as the Lamb of God. For what are you thankful?
