So summer is here, and school is officially over. I know it has been challenging for parents and students but now you can all enjoy the summer. A huge thank you and shout out to all our teachers who had to adapt to a new way of teaching. Thank you for all you did and for all the preparation you will be doing over the summer. Those of you who are going to the cottage or somewhere else for the summer, remember you can continue to watch the services on YouTube and Facebook.
The Re-opening team had a meeting again on Thursday and we have all our preliminary work. We will start implementing all our protocols immediately so when we have our first service on August 16th everything will be ready. Thank you to the team for all you are doing.
Sanctuary and church preparation
There was a team of volunteers that cleaned the whole sanctuary today (Friday). Thank you to all of them. If you are interested to be part of our cleaning team please let the office know (email@example.com) and we will let you know when our next cleaning opportunity will be.
Worship – Online
The online services they will continue throughout the summer and after re-opening.
Thank you very much to Greg Gowing for taking care of the livestream and the Facebook streaming. So far this week we have had 852 views on Facebook and 158 views on YouTube. The Lord is really using this ministry in an amazing way.
Thank you again to Brad and Carrie and the whole praise team for an amazing job of providing us with music for our worship service. We know it takes many hours of hard work, so thank you very much from the whole congregation.

1 Praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord, you his servants;
praise the name of the Lord.
2 Let the name of the Lord be praised,
both now and forevermore.
3 From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
the name of the Lord is to be praised.
4 The Lord is exalted over all the nations,
his glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like the Lord our God,
the One who sits enthroned on high,
6 who stoops down to look
on the heavens and the earth?
7 He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
8 he seats them with princes,
with the princes of his people.
9 He settles the childless woman in her home
as a happy mother of children.
Praise the Lord.
