We are saved by faith alone,

but the faith that saves is never alone.

Martin Luther

Dear Friends 

We hope you can join in worship at 10:30 am this Sunday.

If you feel unwell or are uncomfortable coming to church, please request the Zoom option by calling a warden. Zoom coverage will be available as requested.

Please remember in your prayers:

– for peace within our country, and in the world, remembering the country of Ukraine, areas of unrest and riots, and asking for wise discernment in our leaders;

– those who are sick, suffering, fearful or in need, and their caregivers, those feeling isolated and those who are vulnerable;

– the Royal Family in their grief, and prayers for strength, wisdom and grace for our new King, Charles;

– those who have died and those who mourn;

– the victims of violence and natural disasters; remembering especially those in the Eastern seaboard recovering from hurricane Fiona;

– our Indigenous brothers and sisters, especially remembering their hurt and grief at this time; hoping we can develop communication and fellowship between us;

– refugees, remembering those fleeing the Taliban regime, and those fleeing war in the Ukraine; we pray for areas of unrest and riots, asking for wise discernment in our leaders;

– those who are persecuted and oppressed for their faith in Jesus Christ
