This is your weekly update and check-in from your minister. I hope you are all doing well and that you have settled into somewhat of a routine (especially those with children at home).
I read an interesting and insightful article about how to cope in these circumstances. Here is the link for those who would like to read it:
I will be sending out an email to keep you up to date with what we are doing at Central to continue the ministry. I will send it every Thursday as of next week, so watch this slot for up to date news and information.
We will continue to livestream the service on Sunday at 10am. Please check the website for the link. Please invite your friends to join you by sending them the link and inviting them to join you for church in their own home.
For those who cannot watch live, the service will be posted on our website as well so, you can watch at anytime.
Maundy Thursday (7pm), Good Friday (10am), Palm Sunday (10am) and Easter Sunday(10am).
All of these services will be available online please check the website for the latest updates and links to the services. The plan is to livestream all of these services. Please check the website and your weekly email update especially regarding Maundy Thursday (April 9th).
There will be no on-campus meetings for any of these ministries. However, the team will continue to connect with the youth and families online, through email and on social media. We have an amazing team that will keep the ministries going through this time. To connect with any of the team members, please check the website.
We have a team ready to help with any needs. If you need help with anything please contact the office (email@example.com or phone and leave a message (519)623-1080), or Lynda Pinnington (firstname.lastname@example.org) or myself (email@example.com).
Thank you very much for your faithfulness with your tithes and offerings. I am humbled by the amazing support for the life and work of the church that we have received from all of you, despite all of us going through very difficult financial times. I am blessed to serve in church like this.
I have been asked how we can give during this time, so here are the different possibilities:
- You can mail your offering to the church (7 Queen’s Square, Cambridge, ON, N1S 1H4).
- You can drop it through the mail slot at the office (the door will be locked so no contact).
- You can go online and make an e-transfer (we have set it up, so you do not have to use a password).
- Through PAR (Pre-Authorized Remittance). Unfortunately, the office that sets this up us closed because of the pandemic so we are not able to set-up new PAR accounts. We will be able to do this in the future again.
The prayer ministry continues their work every Tuesday. If you have a prayer request, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay connected (but stay home!)
Please remember to stay connected. Send an email or a text, better still pick up the phone and check in with friends and loved ones.
Habakkuk 3:17-19 (NLT)
17 Even though the fig trees have no blossoms,
and there are no grapes on the vines;
even though the olive crop fails,
and the fields lie empty and barren;
even though the flocks die in the fields,
and the cattle barns are empty,
18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord!
I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!
19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength!
He makes me as surefooted as a deer,
able to tread upon the heights.
