Dear West Church Family,

As you have probably heard, this past Monday, Massachusetts began a phased reopening process. However, it needs to be said, that West Church has never been closed.

We have been, and continue to be, open to the Spirit of God working in and through our lives on our respective frontlines and front lawns. You might be surprised to le

The Holy Spirit has been preparing us, before we were even aware, that there would be a “present crisis.” Of course, in context, Paul was referring to a Christian’s marital status in light of the crisis they were facing in Corinth at that time. It could have been famine or persecution.

COVID-19 Response

In troubling times like the one we are living in, God’s Word can give us comfort, hope and consolation.

And Jesus said:

“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.” ⁃ John 14:1 NLT

I find these words consoling as I walk with Jesu
