Zero Capacity Limit for In-Person Services

We are grateful to God for moving the Ontario government into Step Three of its RoadMap to Reopen so that full occupancy for in-person services may return. Even though we have no capacity limit, we still need to maintain a social distance of 2 metres per family unit. This means we will still have limited seating in the auditorium and overflow. Please note a 2 metre distance is still required between households units.

Registration will continue each Monday (via email or telephone). We encourage attendees to consider reserving seats in the Lobby/Forest Room in order to allow others a place in the Auditorium.

Childcare will be available for Toddlers to Grade 5 (spaces limited)               

Attendees will need to follow all COVID-19 guidelines:

  • Stay home if you are feeling ill, or have any COVID-19-like symptoms.
  • Wear a mask inside the church building.
  • Socially distance at 2 metres apart.
  • Stay in your assigned seats and don’t move around to socialize prior to the service.
  • Leave the church directly after the service and socialize outside.
  • Drop-off and pick-up Sunday school children by one parent only.

The church office will be open Tuesdays to Thursdays from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Visitors are asked to make an appointment and follow the strict COVID-19 guidelines. 

We encourage those unable to attend in person to stay connected by live streaming the services, receiving our weekly Life Online, and reaching out to one another.

This Sunday

Speaker: Bill Thornton

In the book of Joshua, the people of God became the unlikely but unquestioned conquerors because of God’s kindness and their bravery.  Though their conquest was to reach the promised land, ours is to reach the promised life.  As we seek to retrace their steps, we will find God’s footprints alongside our own.

We will be streaming our service live on our Watch Live page.  Join us online this Sunday at 10 am.  Watch any of our previous sermon videos on the On Demand page.

Easter Presentation

Dare to Believe (Fall) Campaign

In April 2019 we celebrated the Grand Opening of our $3 million dollar building expansion.  We now have an enlarged lobby and kitchen, new washrooms, an activity room and kids meeting room.  We praise God for his provision in allowing this dream to become a reality.  Of course, our ultimate objective is not an expanded facility, but having the space to advance the kingdom of Christ.  We invite you to invest in the future with us by committing to donate towards the remaining $1.551 million dollar loan.  Our goal is to receive a minimum of $160,000 each year over and above donations to the General Budget.  By doing so, may God “bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work” (2 Conrinthians 9:8).
