Hello everyone from the Camrose United Church Community of Faith.
If there is one thing we can be certain of in our journey, it is that it will always be different than yesterday. As you know, the health situation in our community continues to change rapidly and we are doing our best to respond accordingly. We will continue to post updates as they become available.
After much consultation and deliberation a decision has been made to suspend Sunday worship for the next three Sundays and reevaluate things after April 5, 2020.
At this time, we are asking that all committees and groups take the opportunity to observe a Sabbath from in-person gatherings for the duration of Lent & Easter. If your group finds it necessary to make decisions we encourage the use of email, telephone, Skype, FaceTime or some other form of communication rather than face-to-face gatherings. Let’s all do everything we can to care for our more vulnerable community members.
Office hours are still in effect, staff will still be around, but we ask that anybody visiting the church office take the following precautions:
Our Ministry team will be meeting to determine how we will support each of us in our worship in these days ahead. Please keep an eye on camroseunited.ca, our Facebook page or your email for more details.
Whether it was as those early fishermen who dropped everything to follow Jesus or those Christian communities who, for different reasons, worshipped in small groups, we have walked toward the unknown with uncertainty and hope. We have been here before. The light of Christ guides us and we will get through this.
Stay safe, and blessings to all.
Pastor John on behalf of the Ministry Team and Church Council
