President Trump has declared today as a National Day of Prayer. 

After designating a National Emergency in response to the coronavirus, President Trump called for today to be a National Day of Prayer. 

Stating, "Now is the time for Christians to be strong and courageous, knowing that Almighty God is with us," Franklin Graham posted on his Facebook page this message: 

Opportunities to Worship & Pray

Below, we have listed several community churches. Some are meeting in person. Some have decided to meet only online. It’s a strange and unprecedented time, but it is also an opportunity to hear new messages.

Note: If there are other churches that would like to be added to this list, please contact editor@enewsaz.com We need your website URL, your Facebook page if you have one, a list of your services and a link to an online stream if your church provides that. Thank you!

Church Online

Sunday Service Times:

9 AM
10:30 AM

Coronavirus Statement: Stay updated with Cornerstone Church’s plans.

-Our team has been praying, talking, researching, and exploring options over the last 48 hours. We’ve consulted the best available information from the Centers for Disease Control and the Arizona Department of Health. We’ve talked to church leaders in our area as well as consulted with church leaders across the country.

-Based upon the information we’ve received and after much prayer, we’ve decided to cancel in-person gatherings for the next two Sundays.
-On March 15 and March 22, you are invited to stream our worship experiences at prescottcornerstone.com/live.

-This decision was made based upon our desire to participate in “flattening the curve” (click the link to learn more) as CDC leaders and medical experts have encouraged. Our decision was also made based upon our concern for those in our church and community who are most vulnerable to this virus based upon their age and pre-existing health conditions. 


Heights Church

Church Online

Sunday Service Times: 

8:45 AM
10:30 AM
11:59 AM
6 PM

Coronavirus Statement: We are not canceling Sunday services, but we are moving our services exclusively to our online church experience.

This Sunday, all our gatherings are taking place ONLY at our online campus because government health experts say large public gatherings contribute to the spread COVID-19. For this reason, our physical campus will be closed for kids, youth, and adults. Click here to join our online church experience from your computer, smartphone, or tablet.

For some, this may seem like a surprising decision. However, our heart is to love our church family well. We have looked to God’s Word, wise counsel, and government health experts for wisdom and information. Knowing that a significant population of our church family falls within the most vulnerable demographic for COVID-19, we are taking the proactive step to move all our gatherings this weekend online as a way to express care and concern for those whose age or health status puts them at an elevated risk.

Coronavirus Statement: In order to protect all of us and the community, after consulting with the Vestry, it is with a broken heart, but believing it’s the best for us at this time, that I have decided to shut down St Luke’s for two weeks beginning this afternoon. That might look like an extreme and unnecessary decision, but I prefer for us to be safe than sorry.

Deacon Kimball is the preacher for this weekend; we will publish her sermon on the website.
