Home Worship – Sunday October 18, 2020

This Sunday, October 18, we take a look at the Book of Joshua as we continue to make our way through the story of God’s people. This week’s theme is “God Overcomes.”

Our Home Worship service for this week will go live on YouTube at 10:30am. A recorded and edited version will be available early Sunday afternoon. The words to the songs in the service will be on the screen. The service continues to be available by telephone for those without internet access.

    • Study Leave & Vacation: I will be away from October 20 to November 2. If you are in need of pastoral care please call the church office (905-648-6024) or email Rev. John Hibbs  jayhibbs@cogeco.ca.
    • Online Worship: Worship on Sunday October 25 and Sunday November 1 will be led by the Rev. Todd Nelson. Todd is a friend and colleague of mine who was most recently the minister of Knox Presbyterian Church in Acton. The Home Worship Service will premier at 10:30am each Sunday, and you will receive worship information by email on the Saturday evening as normal.
    • Update on In-Person Worship: The Reopening Taskforce met this week, and our assessment is that the public health situation is such that we must continue to postpone the resumption of in-person worship services. At this time, we cannot project when in-person services will resume. The Taskforce will meet again in 2 weeks to reassess the situation, and Session will continue to keep all of you up to date.


Grace and Peace,
