But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
My Dear Church Family,
Our Leadership Team (the Deacons Board and Executive Board) met again remotely from our homes on Monday, May 18, to discuss how much longer to keep our church closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We decided to continue to keep the church facilities closed and to continue the cancellation of worship services and all other events within the building through June 15 or until further notice. I share your frustration in this long waiting process, but we need to receive further directives from Public Health and our government leaders before we can safely reopen the church building and resume our regular worship services. We will continue planning on how best to return on Sunday mornings in a safe manner.
The secretary and I will alternate going into the church office on Monday and Thursday mornings to retrieve the voicemails and check the building. Should you or a loved one require pastoral care, be assured that your deacons and I will always be available to you by phone or by email for your needs and concerns.
Thank you for continuing to give your regular offerings to the church. Your generosity is much appreciated. You can do this either by mailing your cheque (inside your church envelope) directly to the church address or by giving an online donation using e-transfer by following the instructions sent out earlier by email.
I will continue to email my Morning Meditations daily and my updated Prayer List weekly, and my Video Messages will be posted twice a week on our church website and Facebook and YouTube. I will also phone each of you every week to check on your health and to make sure you have enough food and supplies.
I invite you to join me, where you are at home, each Thursday morning, between 11:00 and 11:30, for a time of mutual prayer. Although we are unable to meet together now at the church because of the need for physical distancing, we can still pray together from our homes. God is never limited by our geography. On Sundays, I encourage you to worship at home by listening to a church service on television or the Internet.
This is a difficult and demanding and frustrating time for all of us. As we wait for the situation to improve and the crisis to end, let us continue to pray fervently and continually for one another, our sister churches, our neighbours, our communities, our leaders, our province, our nation, and our world, plus the medical teams, paramedics, and all other front-line workers. Pray that God will contain this virus and lead the scientists to develop and distribute an effective vaccine. We cannot simply rush back to church when permission is granted. Our return must be done carefully. May the God of hope guide us with His wisdom!
Sincerely in our Saviour's love,
What we Believe:
This Church accepts the Holy Bible as its authority in all matters of faith and practice. Our understanding of Christian truth as contained in the Bible is in essential accord with the affiliated Baptist churches, but we have no statement of creed apart from the New Testament.
To worship God and administer the ordinances of the New Testament.
To provide opportunity for spiritual growth.
To express God's love within our Church family.
To bring people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord through proclamation of the Gospel of Christ.
To teach the principles of Christian living for the development of Christ-like character.
To support actively the spreading of Gospel of Christ throughout the world.
To promote Christian morals within our community and society.
To express the love of Christ as a caring community to those in need.
