Worshiping safely ... and in love
Our province is beginning to ease its restrictions on gatherings, but we want to protect others by carefully following the directions of our health departments. Although we are allowing up to 50 people to gather in the church building for worship, our primary means of worshiping will continue to be the on-line service for the foreseeable future.
Live-stream or in-person at 10:00 am; followed by Bible Study
In-person at 7:00 pm beginning July 19
You may also watch our 10:00 am Worship Service as a recording on the website at any time after the live broadcast
In-person worship with limited seating - ... and LOTS of physical distancing!

- Attendance is by request on a first come-first serve basis. If you wish to attend a service, please contact the church office no later than the Wednesday of the week you wish to attend.

- All those attending a live service will be expected to adhere to our strict infection-control policies in the building. Hand sanitizer must be used and face masks or shields must be worn if you are intending to sing. We will have disposable masks available for those who do not have their own. We also recommend wearing face masks when you are entering or exiting the building. You may remove your masks when you are seated and not singing.
