In-person Services suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic

The Executive Committee of the Board together with the Minister of the church are monitoring advisories on the current coronal virus outbreak. At their meeting after the service on March 15, they elected not to offer in-person worship services for the next three Sundays, March 22, 29, and April 5. For worship services after these, the situation will be re-evaluated with the latest medical and societal information then available. Some other worship materials, including reflections by Rev. Rod and other sources of inspiration will be made available.
