WEEKLY OFFERING – Thank you to everyone who has continued to support our church by continuing to send in their weekly offering. Many are dropping them in the secure mail slot located by the doors at the Church Centre, as well as sending them by e-transfers. Don’t forget if you wish to sign up for our Pre-authorized remittance program, please phone the church and the forms can be emailed to you to fill out. The wonderful thing about PAR, especially in our current situation is, you don’t have to worry about whether your money gets to the church – it would automatically be debited from your account and deposited into the church every month, at the same time. It’s a simple process and one that you can opt out off at any time you choose. In any case thanks so much for the Lenten and Easter offerings as well as the weekly offering. Great job everyone! The hope is that we can pull through this difficult situation spiritually, as well as financially.
GOOD FRIDAY PRESENTATION – We hope you were able to join us for the Good Friday service. If not, please feel free to check it out on the church Facebook page or church website.
“FATAL CARNIVAL” DESSERT THEATER – The Dessert theater has been cancelled. However, due to the ‘stay at home’ policy in place, we will not be offering ticket refunds at this time. Once the restriction has been lifted, you may return your ticket for a full refund to the venue in which you purchased your ticket. The other option is this; hold on to your ticket as we will be doing a Christmas production. When the tickets go on sale for this show, you may exchange your ticket for the Christmas production. Considering the current situation, we felt this would be the safest solution. Thank you and sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
BIBLE STUDY – We finished our bible study series, “Goliath Must Fall” through the Zoom video conferencing; it was wonderful to be able to connect this way and continue our bible study. We will be starting a new bible study called the “Alpha Program”, to begin on Tuesday, April 21st at 7 PM. This is an excellent study which involves a 20-25 min. video presentation with leader, written and Nicki Gumbel. We encourage everyone to join us for this study; now more than ever we need to hear positive and uplifting words of encouragement to see us through this pandemic. You won’t be disappointed with this Godly inspired study.
SUNDAY SCHOOL – We’ve been active on the Sunday School Facebook page. This past week we put out a Easter coloring challenge to the children, encouraging them to color Easter pictures and display them on their windows. We also invited the children to meet with the teachers via zoom for an Easter service.
EASTER NEWSLETTER – We hope you received your Easter newsletter; in the envelope you would have received the Easter loonie bag. We are asking the congregation to please support this fundraiser by placing a loonie in the bag each week until Easter 2021. For those of you who have children, make it a fun, teaching game for your children by letting them know how they too, can support the church.
