                           Heritage Happenings for the Week of September 20

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 contact any one of our
