Welcome to the podcast!
The episodes contain the guided meditations/prayers and messages from our weekly services. We hope that you'll join us on zoom in the live gathering but if you aren't able to do that then we have this podcast where you can listen or the replay of the videos are up in our private facebook group.
Catch up on the conversation we had with Nichole Forbes as we focused on learning about Indigenous Nations and Métis at this crucial moment in Canada's unfolding. What she had to teach us was so good. She has given us some resources to learn from - Indigenous Resources
On the podcast are the three special episodes featuring the conversation with Brad Jersak on reimag/in/ing scripture, prayer and faith community.
We are taking the Sunday off for the long weekend. Have a really good weekend and we'll see you back on zoom next Sunday where we'll be talking compassion with Eric & Krista Wilson.

There may be a time when some in our community need to stay home and isolate. We want to be able to help you as you need it. There are members of our community who will be happy to pick up groceries for you, bring you a nice coffee, visit through a window, pray for you, or try and meet whatever need you have.
Let us know how we can help by contacting the church office. It's said way too often, but nonetheless it is still true; we are in this together.
