This is our gathering space for content and reflections in these days of self-isolation due to COVID-19 beginning mid-March 2020. We will post content here several times each week.

A Prayer in Time of Great Sickness and Mortality

O Most mighty and merciful God, in this time of impending sickness, we fly to you for comfort.

Deliver us, we appeal to you, from our peril; give strength and skill to all those who minister to the sick;

empower the means of their cure; and grant that, perceiving how frail and uncertain our life is,

we may direct our hearts toward that heavenly wisdom which leads to eternal life;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

(Book of Common Prayer)

For those who enjoy Country Gospel here's a song related to the message :) enjoy!

Since we are not able to gather in person for worship, word and fellowship today, please set aside time to sit down and enter into what the Lord wants to say to our community this week.

 

Our planned speaker for this Sunday was/is Ms. Kara-Lee Piett. Kara-Lee is a graduate of Tyndale University and is in the process of tracking with the Free Methodist Church toward becoming an Ordained Minister, along with her husband Josiah. At this time she works for Grapeview part-time as our Admin/Ministry Assistant. Kara-Lee also works part-time as a staff member at Nova House in Niagara Falls, where she and Josiah live.

We have broken the components for Sunday worship into several elements: 1) selected worship songs; 2) short intro to Kara-Lee; 3) Scripture (John 9) read by Kara-Lee; 4) Message; 5) closing video reflection chosen by Kara-Lee.
