COVID-19 Response

Latest Update

Thank God the COVID-19 pandemic has been relatively minimal in the Okanagan.  Our worship services were always online and that’s now how most of us continue to worship from week to week.  But as of May 31 we’ve been gathering again in person with up to 50 people, per provincial regulations.  Seating in the sanctuary has been spaced 6 feet apart and physical distancing and cleaning protocols in place.  Children are included in the sanctuary and are engaged by leaders throughout the service.  Since there is no nursery or Sunday School for the summer, it may help to come with colouring/other supplies for them.

If you plan to join us in-person for worship on Sunday mornings please let us know via Sign Up Genius at the link on our home page.  In fact, in these unusual times we require it(!) so that we honour provincial limitations.  As always, feel free to worship live online with us at https://livestream.com/easthillchurch @ 10am or watch/worship later in the archived services.

This is a time for us to love and serve like never before!

This pandemic is yet another reminder that we live in a world of suffering, sickness, sin, and death. None of us are immune to these things. Praise the Lord for the good news of the gospel! God has not left us alone in this.

  • PRAY DAILY for mercy for the ill, endurance for health care team, insight for researchers, and wisdom for officials

  • SERVE by looking to the needs of others. Remember our health-compromised, marginalized, poor, isolated, and oppressed. How can we extend love and support in practical ways

  • CONNECT with church family and surrounding community in other ways. Though we can’t all gather for Sunday worship by the hundreds anymore, consider other ways to build fellowship with one another. Text a friend. Email our prayer team. Keep in touch. Start a group chat.

  • CONTRIBUTE faithfully to God’s good work here and around the world.

  • REFLECT on the sanctity of life, the promise of eternity, and the beauty of the gospel.
