Opportunities to Worship & Pray

Due to Governor Ducey's order and guidance from the CDC as well as the Arizona Department of Health services, churches across the area are closed temporarily to live gatherings. However, many are offering a live stream or video of their normal services. 

We have provided a list of churches below (listed in alphabetical order) and links to their online services. 

Note: If there are other churches that would like to be added to this list, please contact editor@enewsaz.com We need your website URL, your Facebook page if you have one, a list of your services and a link to an online stream if your church provides that. Thank you!

A note from Pastor Scott Savage

Governor Ducey made an update on Wednesday, April 29. He extended the Stay at Home Order with a small number of modifications through May 15.

As a result, we’re continuing with our current plan for online services only. We’re planning to stay within the boundaries of what we’ve been doing through at least May 17.

We have begun the process of developing a phased-in re-opening plan. We’ll be taking in guidance from the CDC, local health information, direction set by Governor Ducey, and clarification by our attorney general. We will also be engaging our hosts at Yavapai College as operators of our Sunday facility who set the policies for our use as tenants.

The plan we are developing will be reviewed by our medical team, our staff, and our board before being shared with the church at-large. We do not currently have a timeline for the release of that plan, but we will keep you updated as possible.

The Struggle is Real

We know this time has not been easy. The isolation created by social distancing puts a strain on our hearts, minds, and souls. We miss seeing your faces each Sunday and we know this has been particularly difficult for many of us. We sense the restlessness and desire to be beyond this phase and regain some of the opportunities we once took for granted.

It’s important to name those feelings, to be honest about the struggle, and to leave space for that frustration.

Yet, We are Still Expectant!

While it may be some time before we are able to physically gather in a large group on Sundays, we’re expectant about what God will continue to do in and through our church during this time. While we might be frustrated about this experience, we know God is far from finished with what He’s accomplishing through it.

As we continue to gather through Facebook, YouTube, and our website on Sundays...
As we continue to meet at groups via Zoom and Google Hangouts throughout the week... As we continue to come together to pray on Facebook and Instagram each week...
As we continue to invite our friends to check out our church during this time...

...we are surrendering to God’s agenda for this time and trusting Him to transform our hearts in this process.

I’m excited to share with you this Sunday as we celebrate communion together and continue our Unsinkable series. I believe this message may be the most timely and relevant message yet in this series.

Please join us on our website, Facebook, or YouTube this Sunday for a special time of worship!

Thanks again for being an amazing church. Grateful for each one of you!

As we continue to look to our national, state and local government authorities for direction in this season, our hope is to support their efforts and recommendations as best we can to love and care for our community. 

In step with the latest guidelines from the Governor’s Office, we are maintaining our closure of campus, as well as the pause of all off-campus group meetings through April 30. This includes all Life Groups, Heights Youth and Heights Kids gatherings and activities of any size. 

The physical church office will be closed but our staff team will be answering phone calls, receiving mail and responding to email. We care deeply for you and are still available to connect virtually by the gift of technology. 

We are looking forward to seeing all of you Sunday as we continue to gather at our Online Campus at 10:30a and 6p. Our Lobby Team can’t stop talking about how much fun and life you bring to them each week in the chat!

SOLID ROCK CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP

—    COVID-19 UPDATE    —

26 APRIL, 2020

Dear Solid Rock Family,

We are continuing to seek the Lord for guidance and direction on how to join God in loving people into following Jesus as the family of God during this pandemic.

As the body of Christ, we will continue to look for opportunities to minister to our community, however most ministries from the church are on hold until the end of April (including our Sunday gatherings). We are endeavoring to submit to our governing authorities as well as Christ’s call to love our neighbors in this time.

In uncertain times like this, we need to rely on God’s certain truths. 

To watch the latest message from God’s Word delivered by Pastor Matt on Sunday morning, click https://vimeo.com/411621190 for Sunday, April 26, 2020. The video will also be available on our facebook page (click HERE).

We are here to serve you in these difficult times. His strength is made perfect in our weakness.

Update from Pastor Whitney

Dear Willow Hills family,

First, on behalf of our church staff, let me say how grateful we are to belong to such a wonderful group of Christ followers.  We have been blessed by so many of you in so many ways.  Your willingness to serve and be served, your patience with us in these unprecedented times and your consistent prayers and support are a great encouragement. 

In the coming weeks, we will begin facing some challenging decisions unlike those we have faced before.  Many of them simply have no clear right and wrong answers.  Many of them will have to be based on limited information and much uncertainty.  It is doubtful any of them will make everyone happy.  As I write this, I have just spent the past hour on a Zoom conference with a dozen or so other Prescott pastors and Gabe has been speaking with pastors in the YBA.  Each of them faces the same challenges and questions. 

When will we be able to meet again?  What will that look like (will we have to start with groups under 50 or 100)? What changes will we need to make to help people stay safe and feel comfortable while still gathering to worship and fellowship together (social distancing, passing the plate, physical greetings)?  These and many other questions lie before us.  In this time, may I ask you to do two things and avoid two things: 

First, we covet your prayers.  The Bible makes it clear that God alone possesses all wisdom.  He sees the unseen and knows the unknown.  Yet, He does not hoard His wisdom, He offers it freely to those who ask of Him.  So we encourage you to seek wisdom from God -for yourself, your government and your church. 

Second, we encourage you to be patient.  Be patient with yourself and with others.  Everyone -your government, your medical professionals, your church leaders, your neighbors, the cashiers at the grocery stores and everyone else -is going through a trying time unlike any they have faced before.  Most are stressed, many are fearful and all need patience and kindness.  Sometimes, when we are frustrated and stressed, we take those emotions out on others.  Let’s try to show Christlike love and kindness to those around us. 

As for what to avoid.  Avoid panic.  I know this is hard when we are saturated by a media driving panic and surrounded by others who are in various stages of panic.  But panic leads to rash words and behavior.  It leads people to do things they would otherwise not do.  Often, panicked, people say, “We have to do something.  Anything is better than doing nothing.”  This simply is not true.  Sometimes, doing something helps us feel more in control, but doing the wrong thing is far worse than doing nothing.  If the house is on fire, you don’t fill up the bucket with the first thing you find and throw it on the fire.  A bucket full of water will help put out the fire; a bucket of gasoline will not.  Pray, relax, and think.  “God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

Second, avoid pride.  Pride thinks it knows more than it knows and looks down on anyone who disagrees or feels different.  There are some things (like God’s Word) that are absolute and settled.  There are many others (like my opinions) that are not.  Especially in matters like today’s challenges that are new and deal with so many unknowns.  God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. 

With these in mind, let us calm down and trust God.  Let’s not try to play the role of the Holy Spirit in other people’s lives.  Don’t tell people who are struggling financially that they don’t care about human lives and don’t tell people who are truly at risk of dying from this virus that they are cowering in fear. There are a multitude of issues and values converging in this crisis: health, safety, finances, dreams, and freedoms to name a few.  People weigh these values differently.  Allow for the differences.  Don’t demonize those who disagree.  Show love and kindness.  Listen before you talk.  Speak kindly when you do talk.  And know that we look forward to seeing each of you again soon. 

Sincerely,

Whitney H. Walters
