Communion Sunday Soup Lunch

matthew-hamilton-160833.jpg

We'll join together after the service for a simple lunch of bread and soup on the Sundays that we take communion together (Mar. 4).  Our hope is to deepen our understanding of the sacrament of communion by enjoying a meal together after taking the bread and wine, much as the disciples and the early church might have done. 

We need volunteers to serve and clean up after the lunch.  If you'd like to help, contact Youth Pastor Michael Bowyer.

We plan to hold Baptisms on March 18th.  Please read the Baptism document in order to familiarize yourself with the qualifications of a baptismal candidate.  If you have any questions, please contact 905-902-1452. We want to sit down with you and talk about the meaning of baptism and your profession of faith in Jesus, so you should let us know of your interest in baptism at least two weeks before.

We may also offer baptismal classes.  Please watch for details.  Please contact Pastor Lane or the church office, if you are interested in being baptized.
