Worship for Sunday December 6, 2020 by ZOOM and YouTube

Order of Service – Sunday December 6, 2020 @ 10:30AM

We continue our live broadcast from the Sanctuary this morning. We remain closed to public worship. Rev. John, Fred, our Scripture Reader, and our Tech Team are present this morning.

TODAY we will be celebrating the Sacrament of Holy Communion. You are invited as we share in this joyous feast to have a bread like and beverage like substance at your side when we partake together. Taste and see that the LORD is good!

We are now able to livestream (broadcast) via YouTube each Sunday. You don’t need a link like ZOOM. Just visit our St. Andrew’s Guelph YouTube Channel and select the live service. Thanks to our Tech Team for making this further option available. You can now invite your friends and families to our YouTube channel instead of worrying about ZOOM links.
