By now many of you will have learned of the session's decision to suspend worship services until further notice. We did not make this decision lightly, but we believe it to be the right choice. The continuing flow of news about restrictions and cancellations - in Alberta and elsewhere in Canada - has confirmed our decision. This is what you need to know about what happens now:
Kim and I will continue to be in the office - checking phone and email messages and managing the information that comes to us. Rental groups have also suspended activities and we will ensure that the electronic calendar on our website is as current as possible.
Know that our regular Wednesday Bible study, Thursday 'Chat & Mingle' sessions, are similarly suspended until further notice. The Session met on Wednesday evening (March 18), and we continue to think about what is needed to ensure we remain connected and responsive to emerging needs.
To that end, we have had people volunteer to pick-up and deliver groceries, prescriptions or other necessities for those who are unable or unwilling to go out to the stores themselves. Please call the office (voice mail will be checked regularly) if this would be of help to you.
Be well –
