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.
* Under current Covid restrictions our worship services are exclusively online. God willing, with Covid-cases decreasing we’ll be able to open again with in-person worship at some point in 2021.
When that happens, 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, it may help to come with colouring/other supplies for them.
When open again, 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/
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 Jesus! 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, neighbours, 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 how precious life is and the beauty of the good news that God’s grace through faith in Jesus gives you fullness of life here and now, as well as for eternity!
