Dear Friends In Christ,
It is hard to believe that it is almost the middle of August and that the Church has been closed for 5 months now. Who would have believed in the middle of March that we would be closed for so long? We have had a severe trial these last five months but we can praise God that He has brought us through it so far.
I am writing this letter to let you know that our Church Council has made the decision to try to reopen the Church on September 13, 2020. That is, if the numbers in Peel and in Ontario continue to look as good as they have in recent weeks. There will be much that is different as we reopen. We want to be cautious and to obey all of the bylaws which have been put in place for our protection. The steps we are taking will be outlined on the website soon.
We will be having one service each week which will also be streamed live on YouTube for those who are unable to attend. We must limit the number of people in the building to thirty percent of our occupancy. As the Church is a public building we must wear masks while we are inside. We will be offering a mid week Bible Study beginning in September which will be on the video platform Zoom. We have to make sure that we practice all the requirements for keeping the participants safe.
Our plan is also to put a video on the website to outline the procedure for attending worship once we reopen. Watch the website for updated information over the next few weeks.
We are looking forward to being able to worship together in person once again.
