There will be two week’s of joint sessions before breaking into individual groups. We have sessions TODAY at 2pm and 7pm.
So, if you’re interested in participating, please contact Patrick Thornton at Thornton.firstname.lastname@example.org or 519-835-1005 to get connected.

A thought for the day: Facing Fears about Finances
Some people have been asking me about finances, the markets and such since they know I used to be in this business. There are legitimate financial fears that go with this crisis these days. It has already begun to produce financial havoc on many people as businesses have been closed, the stock markets took a hit and the price of oil even dropped into negative territory. This will have an impact on the underlying economy for months and months to come. We can be thankful that we’ve had a strong underlying economy here in Canada, but it’s certainly going to suffer some shockwaves.
We must be prepared to face up to these financial issues. First, we need to be alert to the needs of one another and be willing to share our resources. As a church, so far we’re doing well. We’ll work hard to be good stewards of what you’ve given us to continue the ministry God has called us to. To those who’ve stood with us financially, Thank you!!!!
So how do we address our fears about finances? The same way we look at our other fears! We commit them to the Lord. God said this to Joshua: “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” God’s with us every step of the way, so be strong and have courage, even with your finances!
In His grip,
