Weekly News & Notes.
COVID-19 SAFETY PLAN
We have a revised Covid-19 Safety Plan in place that will ensure that we follow the best practices for dealing with Covid-19 related issues as they relate to our ministry on Sunday mornings and throughout the week. Our hearts' desire is to follow the guidelines and trust in the Lord so that our public testimony is strong and full of integrity. Thanks for your prayers in that direction!
SUNDAY SERVICES DURING THE LOCKDOWN
During the Windsor-Essex lockdown due to the Coronavirus, The Gathering Church will suspend the regular Sunday morning in-person worship experience. We will continue to offer a virtual service online Sunday mornings at 10 AM. In addition to the online service, and in keeping with the grey-level restriction of ten persons per “religious service,” for now we will offer multiple Saturday and Sunday morning services for a maximum of 10 people each. The services will begin at 6 PM Saturday evening, and 8 AM Sunday morning and repeat every hour on the hour, lasting about 40 minutes each. We will sanitize in between services and offer as many “services” as people sign up for! Three…four…five…whatever! If you want to meet in person for some teaching from the Word and prayer, and you are not experiencing any symptoms associated with Covid-19, then we’ll be ready! I urge you to reserve a seat for your preferred hour for gathering, just as you do now, and please, wear a face covering, and respect physical distancing.
UPDATE ON JAY MAYNARD
Jay Maynard has accepted our offer to join our staff in the position of Lead Pastor. He is currently serving as a Chaplain with the Canadian Armed Forces, stationed at CFB Borden, near Barrie. We are hopeful that he will be released soon so he can join his family already in Windsor and begin his new ministry at The Gathering.
THE GATHERING IS OPEN FOR LIVE WORSHIP
The Gathering has carefully prepared our building and policies so that we can host live worship services. Since we are limited in the Grey Lockdown level to 10 people per service, we must reserve seats in advance. If you plan to come to a service, you must reserve a seat online using this link: https://reopen.church/r/yccxTExp
