Worship by ZOOM – Sunday September 13, 2020

Order of Service – Sunday September 13, 2020 @ 10:30AM

We are delighted to be back in our sanctuary this morning. We will be livestreaming from the sanctuary every week going forward by ZOOM . Our gratitude to Peter Devries for his leadership and dedication in getting things ready to effectively broadcast. And to our Tech Team members who are assisting us this morning. We will be experimenting with this setup for the next few weeks in anticipation and hope that we can invite members of the congregation who are interested to in-person worship. We will continue to broadcast via ZOOM even when we are able to have a live audience. Our community may be apart due to COVID but we will endeavour to keep our worshiping community TOGETHER through the gift of technology.

We are further delighted to welcome back our Music Director, Fred Gingrich. Fred will be providing several instrumental pieces for our worship services. In due course, it is hoped that we will be able to have recordings of our Choir too. And Fred is working on adding members of the Bell Choir occasionally. We certainly have missed Fred over these last several months and welcome him back today!
