Scripture this Week


In-person Service Announcement

Our official Board has met 3 times since June. We have talked about, discussed, and prayed about our Church amid the COVID-19 crisis. It is so good that we can worship online and have the weekly bulletin and website. It was wonderful to worship together outside recently.

Due to the COVID-19 numbers still rising we will continue to meet online. In the future, we are looking for some form of in-person and will provide updates as things develop.  Everyone’s health and safety is of the utmost concern. May God keep showing ways to experience together – even while physically apart.


Food Bank

Every Wednesday from 2 – 4pm in the Church parking lot.  If you or anyone you know needs food, please come and be helped.  This is an emergency food bank set up during the Pandemic with Daily Bread Food bank, Second Harvest, the City of Toronto and the Syme 55+ Centre.  It is available for anyone in need.


Mask and Flower Pictures

Mask Contest Winners were Keziah and Ezekiel G., Nancy and Judy U., Simon,Cole, Janine H., and Tim P.  Thanks to Flower and Garden Pictures submitted by Norm A., Trevor H., and Rebekah P.  Congratulations everyone! We enjoyed the pictures very much.

Watch for a Christmas themed Contest COMING SOON


Official Board Meeting

The Official Board will be meeting via Zoom, this Wednesday, October.28th at 7:15pm.  Sign in or call in instructions will be sent to board members.


Outreach Announcement

There is currently a pause on some of our Outreach Activities due to COVID-19.  Until further notice we will not be collecting the milk bags, or any items for shelters.  Hopefully this will be a temporary situation and we can take part in these ventures in the future. Thanks for all your efforts always.
