Please be advised that the service will include singing, which is regarded as a higher risk activity with regards to the spread of Covid-19. All who wish to sing (other than Music Director and song leaders in the front row) are asked to wear a facemask for the duration of the service.

Order of Service for August 16, 2020
Call to Worship (Psalm 86)

Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.
Preserve my life, for I am devoted to you; save your servant who trusts in you.
You are my God; be gracious to me, O Lord, for to you do I cry all day long.
Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving,
abounding in steadfast to all who call on you.

  • Gone Fishing: Pastor Steve is on holiday until September 1. Pastoral concerns can be shared with your elder.
  • Study: The summer break is just about over and there are plans to start again in September.
  • 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!
  • Communion: We will be celebrating communion on Sunday, September 6. Those attending on-site will be provided with a prepackaged communion wafer/juice set as we did in July. Those joining us at home are invited to prepare for this service with their own bread and juice. Those who plan to be on-site are asked to preregister at the door or by emailing Pastor Steve prior to Communion Sunday as the numbers will be restricted to a maximum of 50.
  • Birthdays/Anniversaries: Floris August 16, Terry August 21.
