Continuing this Sunday! Worship Service: We are incredibly excited to announce that Covid restrictions are no longer in place! Praise God! We hope to see you and your family in person but those who are unable to attend can still join us on Facebook live at 10:00am.
1. While masks and distancing are no longer required at church, we do understand that one or both of those measures might still be a necessity or preference for some and so we respect and honour that. Seating has been arranged to make distancing still an option if needed and of course, you can still wear a mask without judgment from us! :)
2. As we come into church over the next couple of weeks, each of us with our differing comfort levels or preferences on distancing/masks/hugging/hand shaking, let's be sure to honour one another in humility, love, and patience concerning those things. Let's continue to prioritize joyfully building up the body of Christ in the unity of the Spirit.
3. Childcare programs will still be on hold for now as we seek more volunteers and plan curriculums.
4.Your children are 100% welcome in the service (yes, even if they're crying or being loud at times). We love your families and don't want anything to hinder you from worshiping with the Body of Christ.
Pancake Sunday - July 25: July 25th is the return of a favourite church tradition at The Gate: Pancake Sunday! Come to church by 10:00am as usual, but expect to enjoy a delicious breakfast along with the service. Gluten Free pancakes will be available as well!Volunteer Opportunities - Summer: As you can probably imagine with all that's been going on, we currently have a lot of opportunities for volunteers to serve and build up the body of Christ. Whether it's serving by running sound, joining a worship team, making coffee, or taking care of babies, you are needed. Please contact Pastor Greg at email@example.com if you're willing and able!Donations: We now have a dedicated email address for tithes and offerings: firstname.lastname@example.org. The previous address still works, but we are making this one available specifically for online giving and encourage you to make use of it if you donate digitally. Thank you!
