Greetings in the Lord Jesus. I wanted to update everyone on our plan for Sunday services this week.

Since the government of Canada has not changed the rule that less than fifty persons are allowed to meet, we will proceed on this Sunday as we did last week.

There will be no prayer meeting at 9:30a.m., but our morning service (11:00a.m.) and evening service (5:00p.m.) will continue as normal.

If you are in a high-risk category or are showing symptoms of sickness, please do not attend. Also, if you do not wish to attend, please do not do so.

The purpose of this plan is not to command anyone to attend services or do anything which would violate your own conscience or your own health protection plan, but simply to say that during this crisis, I will be preaching on Sundays as normal and as long as we do not exceed fifty persons, persons are welcome to come.

Thankfully, our building is large enough so that fifty or less can practice social distancing, which means no hand shaking, no hugging, no physical contact of any sort, and maintaining a distance of 4-6 feet away from one another.

May the Lord continue to advance His cause in the earth through the faithful preaching of His word and the faithful testimony of His people.

And may we all continually (not just one Sunday of the year) reflect on the glory of the resurrection of the Son of God – “who was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification” (Romans 4:25).

In Christ,

Jim Butler
