Due to the Covid -19 virus,all church services will be cancelled until further notice.
In light of the recent situation with the Coronavirus, we will temporarily be taking some precautionary measures at our services beginning this Sunday, March 15th. The situation will be reassessed weekly.
We ask that you refrain from hugging or shaking hands with your fellow church family members. Aside from hand washing and not touching your face, social distancing is the next most important thing. It is suggested that we ask people to sit at 2 metres (6′) apart in all directions, unless from the same household.
The breakfast has been cancelled for this Sunday and coffee will not be served following the service.
We will also be making some changes to the collection of the offering. Rather than passing the offering plates around the church, they will be on the communion table for you to drop your offering in to.
We ask that if you are feeling unwell or have children who have a cold that you make a wise decision regarding church attendance so as not to put others at risk. According to the information currently available through the CBC website:
“For most, the coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. For seniors and those with underlying health issues, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia. But the vast majority recover: people with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while more severe illness may take three to six weeks”
Most of the people who contract the coronavirus will simply feel as if they have a cold or flu and therefore, they may be tempted to “tough it out” and carry on with normal activities. However, given the multi-generational nature of church, while you are “toughing it out” you may be passing on the virus to vulnerable seniors who are not as well fortified against this illness. Out of love and concern for these seniors, we encourage all those who are feeling sick to stay home.
We believe these are wise decisions at this time to protect our church family from illness or worries. We look forward to worshipping together this Sunday.
We are not a people who live in fear as stated in 2 Timothy 1:7 “For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” We take these precautions out of care for our community and those who are vulnerable among us. We ask you to uphold the Session in prayer as they make decisions around what is best for the health of the congregation. Pray for those impacted by this virus and for the health care professionals who are on the front lines caring for those who are infected.
