Church Family Gatherings at West County

We are physically gathering every Sunday at 4:30 p.m. in our church parking lot to sing, to pray, and to create space for building relationships and friendships together. Our Gatherings will last about 45 minutes to an hour each week. You will be asked to

  • Bring your own chair or blanket
  • Fill out a registration beforehand
  • Practice social distancing and wear a mask when you attend

 

Need support? Looking to get involved? Maybe, during this extended period of social distancing, you're looking for a community to connect with for accountability and friendship. Or, maybe you want to dive into a new book or Bible study and read-along with others. Click below to sign up for a group! Or, if you are a group leader, browse our leader resources page for more.
