Hi Friends! Here are some important announcements for the coming weeks:

The service for January 31st has been pre-recorded and is already posted to our YouTube channel. It can be viewed here:

 

Next Sunday, February 7th will be LIVE. I am going to attempt to learn how to live stream through YouTube. However, if it’s too steep a learning curve we will provide the service over Zoom. Please look in next  week’s newsletter for the most accurate information.

Mark your calendars: Feb 17th is                            We have been asked to provide an Ash Wednesday meditation as part of our        shared Lenten services with the United Churches. This short and meaningful            service will be uploaded to our YouTube channel on Feb 17th.

 

 Lenten Bible study: “Pray like this…” This study will explore some of the major themes of the Lord’s prayer- the possible sources Jesus used and transformed to form this prayer; our relationship with God and our neighbour; God’s provision; forgiveness and forgiving, and our battles with temptation and testing. Anyone interested is invited to join me over zoom on Thursdays at 7pm starting Feb. 18th for this five-week study. More information to come!
