"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but one of power, love and sound judgement." - 2 Timothy 1:7

As of this post, no changes have been made to our normal services or ministry schedules.
Preteen & Youth March Break Retreat
The Preteen and Youth March Break Retreat is still scheduled as planned. The retreat organizers are monitoring the situation closely. Parents should be monitoring the health of their child. If your children show any flu-like symptoms please contact Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000 or Toronto Public Health at 416-338-7600 and take steps to self-isolate (quarantine) your child and your family.
Our Children's Director Bria McIntosh, and our Youth Director Cindy Stavropoulos will contact all parents of students who are registered for the retreat if there are any changes or a cancellation.
The church has multiple hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the main foyer area. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is still the best way to reduce the spread of COVID-19. This is the preferred option, but when it is not available, alcohol-based hand sanitizers are a recommended alternative.
We will encourage you to limit physical contact with others by not hugging, kissing or hand shaking.
As with any normal flu season, follow these common sense guidelines for keeping yourself and others healthy:
Wash your hands regularly.
Cough and sneeze into the bend of your elbow.
Eat healthy foods and drink lots of fluids.
Do not go to work, school, or church if you are sick.
If you or a loved one is feeling ill, please follow the medical advice a medical professional and Telehealth Ontario.
Please join with our church family as we pray for those who are impacted by or confronting the virus - patients, families, healthcare workers, authorities, government leaders - and for God's protection over all of us.
If you or a loved one has been impacted by the coronavirus outbreak, please let us know so that we can pray for you and support you by appropriate means.
