The Christian Education Committee is offering a book study during Lent. We’re reading “The Other Side of the River” by Alf Dumont. If you’d like to order the book, please be in touch with Elizabeth by February 21st as we’ll order copies and save on shipping fees. More details to follow.

Here are the readings for this Sunday February 14, 2021 and the one we’re focusing on are in bold: Joel 2:1-2, 12-17; Psalm 51:1-17; 2 Corinthians 5:20b-6:10; Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21

The season of Lent is coming up quickly and we are looking for families to record the Lenten Candle lighting from their homes. It will be very similar to Advent Candle lighting. If you’d like to take part, please be in touch with Elizabeth or Irma. If you’ve not recorded before, we can help you learn this new skill! Any number of voices can take part (2 to ??) and any age.

Sermon by Phone: listen to the recording of Sunday worship each week by calling a local phone number (204 410 1384); please share this information with your friends who don’t have internet access; the recording is uploaded each week on Thursday and will be available until the following Wednesday

Scripture for the day: (Genesis 8:12-14) “God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations;I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh”Prayer: Creator God, in the midst of your great creation, we are reminded that you love us, unconditionally. With this promise, we live our lives with courage, compassion and love. Amen.

May blessing, peace and the knowledge that we are not alone on this journey; may God be a part of our week as we wander through our challenging days and evenings, knowing the spirit of God is part of all our experiences! May we all remember God in a way that keeps us going and be strong and be kind, loving and compassionate.


Please note: because of the Provincial Health order, the Executive decided to continue to postpone in person, indoor worship, and close the building to all user and church groups; staff will be in for specific tasks but mainly working from home; all home visits are postponed until further notice. Be safe and be well.
