Current Sunday Service Schedule

 

9:00am & 10:30am

 
We are offering two Sunday morning worship services, 9:00 am & 10:30 am, in order to spread our people out and practice social distancing and provide a healthy environment. In addition to in-person gatherings, our 10:30 worship service is available via live-stream every Sunday morning, so if you are uncomfortable meeting in person, you can still be a part of everything going on without missing a moment!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
When we gather on campus, please wear a mask. Once you are in your seat and are in a position to social distance, you can then remove your mask for as long as you are in your pew. Of course, if you prefer, you may leave your mask on for the duration of the service. The same thing goes if you decide to be in Sunday school in person: please wear a mask until you are seated in your classroom. Anytime you leave your seat (restroom, departing, etc.), please put your mask on as you go.
 
While they might not be preferred, masks are helping keep you and those around you safe. Thank you for being mindful of those around you tomorrow as we gather in person. However you decide to join us, please be safe and take care of yourself!
 
 
 
 
 

Message From Our Pastor

 
Dear Westmeade Family,
 
What a faithful God we serve! Even in the midst of this pandemic, God is making ways for us to continue to be able to meet together, grow in His Word, and reach the lost! I encourage you today: trust in the presence of our Lord! He is leading you through this unusual time in our world!
 
I encourage you in this time to be connected with the Body of Christ. That word “connected” has taken on new meaning in the past several months, but it’s so refreshing to know that God has made a way for us to be together, regardless of where we are! What a reflection of Christ, who stepped out of eternity to meet humanity in its sin to provide a way to the Father!
 
We are learning and listening to how we can provide the safest way for you to be connected to your church family. We are offering two Sunday morning worship services, 9:00 am & 10:30 am, in order to spread our people out and practice social distancing and provide a healthy environment. In addition to in-person gatherings, our 10:30 worship service is available via live-stream every Sunday morning, so if you are uncomfortable meeting in person, you can still be a part of everything going on without missing a moment! We encourage you to practice safe and healthy social distancing based on your level of comfort. We do not want any of our people compromising their safety for the sake of meeting, so we are doing our best to provide multiple ways you can engage the Lord with your Westmeade family!
 
Even in person, we are limited in our interactions with one another. So many people have said statements like, “I just want to hug all my friends!” Unfortunately, we are unable to do that at this time, but we believe that day is coming where we will all be unrestricted in our interactions. In the meantime, we encourage our people to wear face masks, wash your hands frequently, and be considerate of the needs of those around us.
 
During this time, we are working on offering other ways for us to gather together and engage God’s Word. We will be exploring ways to re-start Sunday school gatherings in person, and will update our website with new information as we learn it. We also have been joining together online and in person on Wednesday nights from 6:30 pm to 7:15 pm for a time in the Word and in prayer together as a Church. This gathering is also available via livestream for those available to join us online.
 
Church family, we do not have it all figured out. Each time we think we get a few steps closer, new information becomes available that allows for more discussion. I do believe everything we offer is done in the context with the highest level of safety and precaution. If we get to the place where we cannot offer a safe environment, then we will re-evaluate the opportunity to gathering in-person. In the meantime, however you prefer to gather with us, I am so thankful for that opportunity. May God continue to lead and guide Westmeade in the days ahead for the glory of His Name and the building of His Kingdom!
 
In Christ-
Justin Mc

The Church United

 
On April 2, a group of Pastors came together to discuss the climate of the Church during this time dealing with the Coronavirus. The purpose of the discussion was to have some plain talk about what the Church is doing, what it can be doing, and how we see the hand of God at work in all this. I encourage you to take about 45 minutes and be encouraged by some of the pastors in Decatur, as well as pray with us, as we continue to keep our eyes focus on our Heavenly Father through these uncertain days!

Resource From Lifeway (And a note from Ben)
Lets face it… things have escalated quickly around us during the last week. BUT thankfully, our friends at Lifeway realize that many churches (like ours) have had to make the tough decision to cancel their services until further notice. Below you will find a website link, a redemption code, and the instructions for FREE access to bible study videos and activity sheets including a passage summary and guide. Hopefully this will be a great resource for you and your family to utilize until things get back to normal. I am praying for you and your families. I am praying that this crazy time will be a true blessing for you and your family as you spend time together that you wouldn’t have, given any other circumstance. WHAT IF this was the beginning of family devotions for years to come!!
Step 1: Go to my.lifeway.com/redeem
Step 2: Register if you are a new user or log in if you already have an account. This is completely free.
Step 3: Enter this redemption code: VZMD4SSQ38
Step 4: Click “Access” (if prompted to sign in again, sign in) and then click “My Dashboard,” and go to LifeWay Kids at Home
Step 5: Download your Activity Page and One Conversation Sheet to use as you watch the video session.
