“Bible teaching about the Second Coming of Christ was thought of as “doomsday” preaching.

But not anymore.

It is the only ray of hope that shines as an ever brightening beam in a darkening world.”
― Billy Graham, Billy Graham in Quotes

Dear Friends

We hope you can join in worship for Holy Eucharist, BAS format, 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. For the months of July and August, Zoom coverage will be available as requested.

Please remember in your prayers:

– the clergy and parishioners of our Diocese over the summer months – for safe travels, and refreshment and rest;

– those who are sick, suffering, fearful or in need, remembering those suffering from COVID-19 and their caregivers, those feeling isolated and those who are vulnerable;

– 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 have died and those who mourn;

– the victims of violence and natural disasters;

– our Indigenous brothers and sisters, especially remembering their hurt and grief at this time;

– refugees, remembering those fleeing the Taliban regime, and those fleeing war in the Ukraine.

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

“Are you ready for the rapture of the church?
Are you ready for Heaven?
Our Lord Jesus Christ now wants all Christians to get into a sense of urgency in our preparation for His second coming.”
