Provincial guidelines limit the number of people in our Sunday worship services. If you would like to attend, please register online. If you are registered but won’t be able to, please let the office know so we can give your spot to someone else. Masks are mandatory, no food or drinks may be present, and social distancing protocols are in effect. Even so, God is with us. Let us worship!
Those not attending in-person worship services meet at 9:30 am on Sunday mornings over Zoom for visiting, a devotional from Pastor Ryan, and prayer. Register here to get the link. There is also a self-serve online worship service on this website with some additional links for live-streamed services recommended by Pastor Ryan.
