Worship by ZOOM – September 20, 2020 (Bless Our Schools Sunday)

Order of Service – Sunday September 20, 2020 @ 10:30AM

We continue our live broadcast from the Sanctuary this morning. We remain closed to public worship. Only Rev. John, Fred, our Tech Team, our trainee Screeners, and our guest today will be in the Sanctuary.

We welcome Andrew Hyde from the Ecumenical Campus Ministry at the University of Guelph as our pulpit guest this morning as we celebrate Bless Our Schools Sunday sponsored by Moms in Prayer International and our Mission and Outreach Coordinating Committee (MOCC). Today’s service was supposed to be different as it was being planned by MOCC and was to include various participants from the Committee. Due to COVID, Rev. John will lead the service and Andrew Hyde will share the message. Welcome Andrew!
