Message from Pastor Duane (June 17): As I am sure you are all now aware, phase 2 restrictions are now in place for places of worship. With this change we will be implementing new opportunities to join us Sunday morning. The first change is the immediate lifting of age restrictions for Sunday attendance. I am personally excited to be able to welcome anyone who wishes to attend, it has been a long time coming! Thank you to all of you who have waited patiently for your time to arrive. You have exemplified grace in the midst of disappointment and I appreciate you very much. However, registrations are still required by Alberta Health and once again here is the link.
As we continue to expand our services you may be feeling uncertain about whether you should attend. I want to repeat what I have been saying for some time. The decision to return is yours alone. There will be many factors that will determine whether you are ready and you should not feel rushed or pressured. For this reason we will continue to offer the streaming service. As we move forward other programs will return, as will as some new offerings, and like you we are discerning the right timing. I encourage mutual grace as we all move through this period of change together. To help you with your decision I am attaching a link to a document that I believe you may find helpful. I encourage all of us to read through it for ourselves and for our church family.
As always I am available to discuss this or any issue you may have. I would love to connect. As I mentioned Sunday, visitation times are available and I would love to meet with you in person. In the meantime, we continue in prayer with you and for you. It is a privilege to be part of our community.
