The following message was shared with our Covenant family via e-mail on January 5, 2022:
I'm writing to let you know that for the remainder of January, Covenant Church programming will continue online only. Our Sundays will run with a pre-recorded Sunday service premiering on YouTube at 10:30 AM each week.
This decision came through our board, along with Brent and me, meeting via Zoom to discern our wisest course of action. The situation is not one that any of us desires, but we take the protection of our ministry personnel and the vulnerable among us very seriously. After listening to several who are involved in the musical aspects of the services, considering the advice of Be In Christ Church of Canada, and looking at the most current information available through our health units, we feel this is the best course of action,
We know that some will be grateful for this decision and others will be very disappointed by it. We encourage each of us to seek to understand it and continue in prayer for and in love with those who will feel differently about this decision than you do. Although we will not be gathering, we are still a family united in Jesus. May we show and share his love with each other during these ongoing challenges.
One advantage of using pre-recorded services is that those of you who are not able to watch the service via YouTube can have DVDs of the service dropped off to you before the service date and you can join us in watching it at the same time as most others! If you would like a DVD delivered, please let me know at [email protected] or leave a message for us at 705-549-8477.
Continuing in the hope, love, joy, and peace of Jesus,
Lead Pastor, Covenant Christian Community Church
