Covid-19 Update:

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic the Ontario Government has mandated that all public gatherings of 5 or more people be cancelled or postponed.

As a result, ALL services and programs at the church are cancelled, temporarily.

Sunday services will be held by essential staff ONLY at 10:30 a.m. Sunday mornings and broadcast on Facebook Live. Please do NOT come to the church on Sunday. 

Growth group leaders and members are encouraged to meet virtually in order to continue their groups. Please contact your group leader to discuss what options your group is looking at, if any.

We all realize that these are trying times and that many of us are feeling anxiety and stress. The most important thing to remember is that ALL of this is in God's hands. We might recall the story in  Matthew 8:23 - 27 wherein Jesus and the disciples were in a boat when a furious storm whipped up around them. The disciples were terrified but the Lord slept peacefully until they woke him in their fear. We know that he calmed the waves and saw them safely through it asking, "Why are you so afraid?". 

Jesus is always with us and when we turn our eyes to Him and away from our fear and anxiety we experience the peace that is beyond all understanding, the peace of God. We pray that all of us remember to do just that, turn our eyes to Jesus and trust that He will see us through this storm.  

Also, please continue to support the ministry of your church by tithing as usual. The fact is that, even though we cannot congregate to worship there, our building continues to be worked in by essential staff and incurring typical expenses. With this in mind please give electronically at https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/42280

or by pressing the "Give" button at the top right of the menu bar. 

You may also mail a cheque to 165 Bertie St., Fort Erie, L2A 1Y9

Finally, please remember that while our building is closed, our church is not. Your Deacons are contacting each of his care families to check their well being, arrange to care for any pressing needs and give updates about the status of our services.

Peace & Blessings, 

Your Leadership Team (Board, Pastors & Deacons)
