Continuing in Prayer and Support:

In these times, as in all times, we are trusting God to grant us wisdom, mercy and faith. As a community of faith and followers of Jesus we are reminded of the numerous times the Bible counsels us not to ‘be afraid’. Normally, this exhortation is accompanied by God’s promise to be with us. God being with us inspires and empowers us to be ‘with’ each other. We do this by praying for one another and reaching out by phone, facetime, Facebook, email, WhatsApp… you name it.  Let’s just stay connected. We send love and wish everyone comfort and good health, and look forward to hearing from you. May God bless us all.

IN FROM THE COLD

Effective Thursday, January 14, 2021 at 12:01 a.m., the government is issuing a stay-at-home order requiring everyone to remain at home with exceptions for permitted  purposes or activities, such as going to the grocery store or pharmacy, accessing health care services, for exercise or for work where the work cannot be done remotely.

This is to inform you that because of the seriousness of the Covid-19 pandemic spreading, to our disappointment and certainly to the disappointment of our guests, we must shut down our In From The Cold “Take-out” meal programme from this Saturday, January 16, 2021 until it is safe to start-up again.

We ended the last season with 88 take-out meals being served on December 19th.  We were privileged that our IFTC team, Chef Ian & some of our volunteers partnered with the Hintonburg Economic Development Committee and the Carleton Tavern to prepare, deliver & serve a Christmas Day meal. 132 meals were delivered to families and 199 people lined up in the rain greeted by Rev. Anthony. Remarkably, this is the 20th year that the group has put on this so needed Christmas Day event – previously served at the Carleton Tavern.  

2021 ENVELOPES

Although we now have 2021 Offering envelopes we are not yet in a position to distribute them.  If you have given regularly in 2020 or requested envelopes recently, there is likely an envelope number and a box of envelopes reserved for you. If not and you need a set, please contact the church office. Since it is not yet possible to attend live services, as we move into the New Year, feel free to continue to use your remaining 2020 envelopes for mail-in donations until you are able to attend and pick up your 2021 envelopes.  Thank you for your ongoing support.
