East Zorra Families – A reminder to transfer your video to the google one drive with the link found in the email sent to you on November 18, 2020 (from the church office). Please do this by Friday December 4th.
Please remember the importance of the contact tracing sheets. We ask anyone who enters the church building to, record the relevant information on the sheet located just inside the mailbox lobby door and the office entry door. Please note when and where you were in the building and then use the disinfecting wipes provided to wipe all surfaces that were touched before leaving. Thank you for your help with this.
During this time when we cannot meet together in our church building, we continue to be a faith community, finding ways we can connect and support each other. We prayerfully ask for your continued financial support as you are able. We know this time brings a lot of uncertainty and impact, we trust that God will provide and we will continue to experience the fullness of Christ.
Electronic options continue to be available from any banking institution. In the short-term we can also make available an e-transfer option (send email@example.com). If you would like to continue to contribute through a cheque please mail the cheque to Dawn Zehr or place it in her mailbox at the end of her driveway. We prefer not to handle cash at this time.
