We want to provide an update regarding the COVID 19 virus. We are not allowing fear to drive us as we know and trust that the Lord has us here for such a time as this. We do want to walk in wisdom and take steps to limit any spread of illness.
In response to the current guidance on COVID19 response, we will honour our government’s request not to hold meetings and to practice distancing as recommended. This means that, until further notice, we will not be meeting for our Sunday gatherings, life groups, or any places that bring us physically together. We see this as a decisive act of love to protect the most vulnerable around us – not based in fear of contracting the virus, but rather, desiring that we don’t carry the virus to others.
While we are physically apart, we recognize the need to be connected to one another in other ways. Members of the leadership team will be reaching out to our congregation this week to check in with you, see how you are doing, inquire about any needs, and to pray for you.
We are also exploring options to connect through interactive tools such as Facebook live and other streaming platforms. We will let you know details over the next few days as logistics are worked out.
We believe in the healing power of Jesus and prayer and want to continue to respond to illness with the freedom to pray.
We'd still love to pray for you. If you call 519-496-2725 you will reach our pastoral minister who will pray with you and carry your healing needs to the congregation.
Thanks for your cooperation and together we pray for the Lord's protection and blessing for all of us!
