Please read below a message from our council:
Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
The Maranatha council met this week to once again discuss and pray about the current global pandemic. We will cancel worship services on the next two Sundays: Sunday, March 22 and March 29. After that time we will re-evaluate the situation.
Here are some options for home-worship which you may want to take advantage of:
- First Barrie CRC http://www.livestreamingministries.ca/fcrc/ . The livestream starts at 9:30 Sunday mornings.
- Chatham Grace CRC http://chathamgrace.com/media/live-stream/ Services begin at 10:00 am
- Covenant Reformed Church of Toronto https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdyUh9qcB0ekeD-VKvPoA_w Service begins at 10:00 am
The church will still need to meet all its financial obligations during this closure. For those who may want to make a donation to the church budget on line, you can do so through the following secure website: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/the-maranatha-christian-reformed-church-of-woodbridge/
The Canadian Council of Churches offers this reminder to all its churches:
We urge our member churches to reflect a compassionate, peace-seeking response to COVID-19 by:
- Recognizing through prayer the human dimension of grief and suffering COVID-19 has brought to communities both near and far;
- Being mindful of the needs of shut-ins and other vulnerable groups who may require additional help accessing medical services and basic amenities;
- Actively repudiating the racism and xenophobia that has shaped certain reactions to COVID-19;
- Using this as an opportunity to embody hospitality and kindness with creativity and hope;
- Giving thanks for the many professionals who continue to risk their own health to treat the sick, be near to the dying, contain the virus, and protect their communities.
Let us stay in touch and continue to pray for each other.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
In Christian love,
Pastor John T, Dirk, Steve, Wil
