What to Expect
Please Note- Current Lock-down issued in N. Ontario for Dec. 26, 2020-Jan. 9th, 2021. This means that all meetings in the building site are currently on hold and only those required for essential activities will be present...all regular meetings will continue on Zoom...Please stay tuned for any further notifications!
Post Covid Lock-down info-We begin our typical Sunday morning at 9:45 am with a heartfelt worship time as believers gather together to remember the Lord Jesus in sharing at the communion service or “Breaking of Bread.” Following this meeting, we enjoy a brief time of informal fellowship.
Our next meeting, the “Family Bible Hour,” begins at 11 am. There we meet in the sanctuary where we enjoy a variety of worship music, from the classic great hymns of the faith, to more modern praise music. Typically, a passage from the Bible or another topic, such as the life of a Biblical character, will be examined during this meeting, with the intent that each should develop in their understanding of its real meaning, importance and application to life.
Live Sunday School is also conducted at this time. All teachers are screened and approved to ensure the children’s safety.
There are occasions for informal fellowship during the mid-week Bible studies. Currently, most of these are conducted via Zoom, although the ladies meet in person (again, masked and physically distanced) for their study on Tuesday morning at 9:30 am.
Prayer is encouraged among all the members through a prayer chain, prayer at all the Bible Studies and a Monday night Prayer Meeting.
Please Note that with Covid-19- there has been modifications to the way we meet. We are concerned about the possible risks to everyone’s health, so we are careful to minimize those risks. Following the recommendations and guidance of the Porcupine Health Unit, everyone is masked when we meet together, and all are asked to maintain 2 metres physical distance. Seating is assigned to ensure this physical distance from households and social bubbles. For those who choose not to attend the meetings held at the chapel building (207 Lawrence), the Sunday morning services are also live streamed on the Zoom platform. Please contact us if you require the links for these meetings.
