covid-19 Elder Update

Please check here for ongoing updates about service changes and community care amidst COVID-19 precautions. 

We live in a season of many unknowns, but at Washington Community Fellowship, we are committed to being a community of hope, love and grace in the midst of so many unknowns. We are reminded that God is in control. Jesus is still leading us and the Spirit of God is still working in the lives of people around us.

We want to continue being this kind of community and the kind of community that cares for the safety of our most vulnerable. In light of the CDC and government authorities' recommendations, the building is currently closed for gatherings in person.

A re-opening task force has been created to evaluate when and how we will reopen for worship services and normal WCF activities. The task force is meeting regularly and will be sending out a congregational survey the week on June 11. 

Here are three opportunities for you to live out our mission at WCF:

  • Worship: We are preparing to run live online worship services for the coming weeks. They will be simpler in format, but meaningful. Live broadcast links and instructions will be found at Tune in at 10am on Sunday to join us and participate online.
  • Gather: Though we can't gather in-person, we are planning guided morning and evening prayers for you to connect with God in community with others. Check out the details and schedule for these gatherings here.
  • Give your time and your resources: Lend a hand to those in our community most affected by the shutdown. Our most vulnerable neighbors (hourly/gig workers, shut-ins and those who depend on social support) are severely impacted by the shutdowns. Consider directing your budgets for discretionary spending like entertainment, sports, gym memberships, travel and eating-out towards organizations like Little Lights, Central Union Mission, or other organizations doing great work in the city. We have prepared a list of ways to help in our local community here To support our continued mission at Washington Community Fellowship at
