A few reminders for this week Mar. 16 – Mar. 22, 2020

the life of your church….! FROM THE MINISTER’S DESK The 23rd Psalm is the appointed Psalm for Sunday worship this week. The Psalm assures us of God’s presence in all the challenges we face including the current one; “even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for You are with me.” Even as we take prudent steps to do our part to halt the spread of disease, we do so remembering that it is the steadfast love of God that endures forever. Disease will come to an end. I want to encourage you to reach out to one another; a word of cheer, a note of joy, and a prayer of faith are all part of doing the Lord’s work as we walk together through these days. Please know that I remain available for urgent pastoral care needs. MARK YOUR CALENDARS… WORSHIP SERVICES AVAILABLE ONLINE Your Church Executive Council, following the guidelines of the Ontario Government, have decided that we will cancel onsite services until the end of March at which time we will reassess. Wednesday evening Lenten Bible Studies have been cancelled as well. The Sunday services will be available to watch via live streaming at 10:00 am through the church website. We suggest that you tune in early. To watch live or view a recording later, go to the Church website, scroll down and click on Central United’s Live Stream Page or click here.
