Call to Worship (Psalm 105)

Give thanks to the Lord, for God is good!
We proclaim here and now the marvelous works of our God!
Let our hearts leap for joy, O people of God.

We proclaim here and now the marvelous works of our God!

Congregational Singing: You are asked to wear a mask while singing (front row and Music Director excepted). If you find singing with a cloth mask difficult we encourage you to experiment with a paper mask. Those who are not masked can hum!
Sunday School: Sunday school classes resume this fall for children in preschool all the way to teens in high school. Classes are held on zoom before the church service. For more information please speak to Marion Hannaford.
Sunday Service Sign-up: We anticipate more people wanting to attend church in September/October so we are asking you to sign up for those Sunday services you wish to attend. A sign-up will be available at the side entrance. Attendance will be capped at 50 as per government regulations.
Bible Study (NEW TIME): Steve will host a zoom study on the Bible text for the upcoming Sunday on Wednesdays from 1:00 to 2:00 pm.
Spiritual Biographies: We are inviting the congregation to share little pieces of their spiritual journey that will be recorded and shared online among the church family and the broader world. Questions you might consider include: How has God helped you through a difficult time? What has God been teaching you lately? Why are you still at church when so many have left? How is God present in your life? What is your favourite Bible passage and why? If you'd like to take part in this initiative please speak to Pastor Steve. Our first scheduled recording date will be on the afternoon of Thursday, October 8.
Birthdays & Anniversaries: None on file.
