COVID-19 Updates

These are certainly interesting days in which so much around us is fluid and changing rapidly in real time. We find great assurance and comfort in our unchanging and Sovereign God who remains on His throne and rules even when things feel chaotic to us. This page will post our most current responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Connecting you to help.

In emergency situations there are people who have needs, and there are always willing people who can meet those needs. Let us help you connect.

how you can help

Friday, March 27, 2020

At this point, we are continuing an indefinite suspension of all onsite programs and services. The current mandates of Governor Lee and Mayor Burke suspend large gatherings through April 6 and the CDC recommends “social distancing” through May 11. That means as of today we are not planning a typical Easter service on campus, but we are creatively considering how to make this important season special within the bounds of current restrictions and requirements.

We have developed a way for you to communicate your needs, as well as a way for you to volunteer to help meet needs. Look for the buttons that say “I Need Help” and “I Can Help.”

During these unusual days, we ask you to please continue to be faithful in your giving. Even though we are not gathering on Sundays, God’s activity through the church continues. The missionaries around the world and ministries here in our region we support need us now more than ever.
• You can give online or through the Woodland Park App. If you need help setting this up, call the church during office and someone will be glad to help you.
• You can give anytime by texting the word “give” to 423-278-9686.

Staffing & Office Updates

Friday, March 20, 2020

  • For the foreseeable future, all onsite services and gatherings are suspended.
  • Our pastors and elders are meeting weekly through video conference to pray and discuss updates.
  • We are putting together a training video for leaders to help them facilitate virtual community gatherings.
  • We are developing an office rotation contingency plan in compliance with current advice of health professionals and government officials so we can be ready in case this is required.
  • For now our office hours will remain the same—8:30am to 5:00pm, Monday through Thursday. However, we will only have someone at the front desk between the hours of noon and 5:00pm.

Onsite Gatherings Suspended

Wednesday, March 18, 2020

Given the recommendation of our President as well as Hamilton County officials that gatherings should be 10 people or less, all of Woodland Park’s meetings onsite for worship, groups, or classes are indefinitely suspended. We do not know how long it will last, but we are daily monitoring recommendations and regulations from both our national and local government.
