Worship for Sunday March 7, 2021 by ZOOM and YouTube

Order of Service – Sunday March 7, 2021 @ 10:30AM

Today, we are celebrating the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Before the service begins, you are encouraged to have at the ready a bread and beverage like substance (no judgement) so that you can share in this joyous meal that our LORD provides. The ordinary becomes holy in this meal we share together virtually.

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

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.
