coronavirus updateS

Due to the widespread COVID infection in the greater Lynchburg region, Hyland Heights will encourage the following on-campus precautions for all worship services and ministry activities in order to help mitigate the spread of the virus. 

Any decisions regarding COVID are considered with much prayer, seeking godly wisdom, and the seeking of counsel from a variety of sources. Other local entities from local medical facilities, an increasing number of schools, and also fellow churches have begun to institute further precautions to help curb the infection rate.

The official posture of Hyland Heights towards the COVID pandemic continues in accordance with the following:


  1. Acknowledge – We acknowledge the realities of the COVID pandemic, but most importantly of God’s sovereign authority over the situation. We therefore will pray and act with these realities in mind.

  2. Accommodate – We will work to provide a variety of forums where people can still have access to the preaching of the Word, worship, and the community of believers. Options include the regular in-person services, a separate room where masks are required and there is social distancing, and our online services that are live-streamed and also made available afterward.

  3. Advance – We affirm that the church is critical to the proclamation of Christ and the wellbeing of God’s people. Accordingly, we will strive to advance the mission and the ministries of the church with creativity and intentionality.


Please continue to conduct yourselves in a manner that is worthy of Christ. May we all live in unity, love, kindness, joy, and hope. Blessings to you all as we continue forward as God’s people.


If you are sick, or you have high-risk health conditions, participating with us online is always an available alternative option.


This is a great time to sign up for online giving or to schedule your gifts to be given weekly, every other week, or monthly.


  • Use wisdom and stay home if you are sick. Don't attend worship or other activities until symptom-free and fever-free for at least 24 hours.

  • If you have high-risk health conditions, use personal discretion in attending worship gatherings in-person. Participating online is an available alternative option.

Hyland Heights worship services are streamed live every Sunday, and every message is available to watch and listen to anytime.


  • Pray that God will use this time to grow you spiritually into the image of His Son. Philippians 1:6: "I am sure of this, that he who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

  • Pray for grace, discernment, strength and healing for all those sick with the virus and the medical personnel caring for them. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18: "Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in everything: for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
