God and the Pandemic by N.T. Wright

During the pandemic we have had to deal with hard questions, emotions, and fears. N.T. Wright uses both the Old and New Testament to help Christians think through their reactions and responses to the Pandemic. Wright helps readers reflect on scripture, prayer, and the Bible in order to think differently about disaster and how to react to it. This is a 4-week study that starts on Tuesday, July 21st and runs weekly till Tuesday August 11th. If you are interested in being a part please email the church office and we can arrange for you to pick up a book. Books cost $10 each and we are asking that all participants read up to page 14, before the first study.

Every Tuesday, the program includes an opportunity to sing the old hymns as well as many favourites from years gone by. We also offer Bible study and an exercise program.
Our seniors support the work of the Compassionate Resource Warehouse (www.crwarehouse.ca). This includes sorting and bagging clothing, and other duties.
Each year the Seniors coordinate the packing of Shoeboxes for the Samaritan's Purse organization.
Everyone is special, and so each month birthdays are celebrated during SHARPs on Tuesday mornings.
The Seniors group works on many different projects during the year. They provide rolled bandages for missionaries, put together encouragement cards, provide knitted items to the Warehouse and much more.
We are taking a summer break from our Let's Connect group. Check back soon for opportunities to connect with other parents and be encouraged.
