The Sunday service video will be livestreamed on Wednesday evening at 7pm here and on our Facebook page.
What we believe can shape so much of what we do so in this series we will be taking a look at the Apostle’s and Nicene Creeds. These early church documents lay the foundation and the essentials of the faith.
Trunk or Treat!
You may have seen on Facebook that our church is planning to do a COVID-Friendly Trunk or Treat event on October 31 from 2-4pm at the Elementary School. We already have two people bringing their trunks but we need a lot more trunks and a lot more candy to make it a fun event for families! This event brings a Christian presense into an evening known for darkness and shows that following Jesus can be fun. Speak to Pastor Ryan via email or Facebook to sign-up!
Don’t Forget to Register!
With fall arriving, we expect our weekly attendence to increase, and with COVID-19, we have been running near full capacity all summer. To honour public health guidelines and share the message of Jesus with as many people as possible, we need to move to two services.
We will be holding two identical Sunday morning services at 9:30am and 11am. Registration will be required for each service and the button will be on the homepage of our website.
We will also be rebroadcasting the service at 7pm each Wednesday evening for those who are not yet comfortable with attending church in person.
A Message About Masks
GNB has announced that masks are now manditory for all public spaces, including churches. This means that, for the entire time you are inside the church, you must wear a mask (unless you have a medical condition that prohibits you from doing so).
Also following GNB guidelines, people who are using a mic will not be required to use a mask while they’re speaking or singing, but will put it back on once they’re off the stage. From GNB: “Masks are required inside all places of worship and faith gatherings. An exception is made for a performer or officiant who is performing activities that require vocalization (like talking or singing) at a faith gathering, wedding, funeral, etc.”
