“Every adversity brings new experiences and new lessons.”

Lailah Gifty Akita

Is your head spinning? I know mine is. It’s one “Breaking News” after another, isn’t it?

And to add to the topsy-turvy world … you see we’ve announced that The Gathering Place, too, is suspending services for the time being.

But – Panic Not! (Not that you would, of course.)

Session & Helpers are working on cunning plans to keep us in touch and praising God. Any ideas? We’d love to hear them.

But there are still things to be doing while we’re getting our ducks in a row.

Stay in touch! If you’re in need of anything – sacred or secular – give us a call. We can get you to doctors appointments or fetch you some milk (and cookies?) when you’re running short. And Rev. Adam is always happy to minister to your soul as needed!

Rev. Adam Bartha, 289-823-0580

Linda Caldwell, 905-834-7418

Rev. Larry Beverly, 905-894-0484

John Fletcher, 905-835-1506

Reach out to each other! Dust off your address book and ring old friends. What a great opportunity to catch up!

And if you were planning on being part of the party going to Pasta With A Purpose on March 27th … need I say it? Yes, postponed. And we can say it’s virus-related; nothing to do with the fact that they heard 16 Presbyterians were about to land on them. Anyhoo, we’re just waiting to see what the new date is …

Of course, we’re all still out and about to some degree so, while you’re doing your shopping what about grabbing something for the Food Bank? The Gathering Place is still open its usual hours (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday – 9.00 a.m. to noon) so you can just pop around on your way home from the supermarket and drop something off. And, if you also wanted to bring in your Givings envelope at the same time, that too would be much appreciated. We might have to change our game plan but the work of the Church goes on!

“Life is at its best when everything has fallen out of place, and you decide that you're going to fight to get them right, not when everything is going your way and everyone is praising you.”
