The Coronavirus continues to affect the way we live and experience life together.  Social distancing and avoiding public gatherings help protect the most vulnerable amongst us.  
 
Therefore, we are working on the following exciting, fun and caring ways we can be the church. This is an invitation for all of us to be the church—to see and experience the Kingdom of God in action on earth. 

CARING for each other
Let’s keep in touch with each other through phone calls, texting or emailing.  Technology even permits us to video chat with one another.  Call someone from the church just to say “Hi” and see how they’re doing, find out if they need anything, pray together or just spend time learning about each other.  Some people you contact may be quarantined or are wanting to stay home and not risk going out in public.  If they need groceries or a few essential items, and you are able, please get what they need and determine how they can reimburse you.  

A couple of things to remember:
1) leave the items at the door and do not enter their home. 
2) If they can’t reimburse you electronically, please have them leave the check in their mailbox and handle it with gloves until it’s deposited in your account and practice good hand washing methods.


ON-LINE COMMUNITY

LIVE VIDEO CHAT & STUDY with the Pastor. On Thursday evenings at 7pm and Sundays at 10:30 we will build community together, laugh, learn and ask some of the most pressing questions on our minds at such a time as this.  Go to https://www.northsidecommunitychurch.ca/join-online-service to select the option that will work best for you.

This is something we’ve never done before, so there may be a period of trial and error as we find just the right or best option for on-line community building.
PRAYER REQUESTS
If you have any prayer requests, please email them to Pastor Steve at sboctor@northsidecommunitychurch.ca and it will be shared with the rest of the elders and know that we will be upholding you before God in prayer.
