WORSHIP ON YOUTUBE CONTINUES following
the Center of Disease Control's recommendations for reopening, the guidance
given by Grand Canyon Presbytery and the unanimous decision of the Session
after hearing the report from the Reopening Task Group. Until Arizona reaches Phase 2 conditions, all
on-site activities and onsite worship are suspended. When Phase 2 is reached, the Reopening Task
Group will readdress opening of the church buildings. Our first and foremost
concern is your safety, and the second concern is that coming together with so
many restrictions (face masks, social distancing, limited number of
worshippers, no singing, etc.) is not the Heritage Church we know and love. We
praise God for technology and the gift of the Spirit to worship “together”
while being apart.
Please continue to join us for live stream worship on YouTube each
Sunday at 9:30 a.m. Go to Youtube.com and type Heritage Presbyterian Church
Glendale AZ in the search box. Then click on the church name when it
appears. If you have any trouble, please
