The sanctuary was closed eight weeks ago, and we’ve adapted well. Last Sunday about 45 people celebrated Communion online. The experience was profound. The Congregational Life Team plans for monthly online Communion during the pandemic. Our next Communion is June 7.
This Sunday is Mother’s Day. Please email me a digital photo of your late mother, and I will create a memorial image for this Sunday’s worship service. This is short notice, but I need to receive the photos by email no later than noon Friday.
A reminder that your Sunday offerings can be placed in the Maria St. mailbox, and Patti will collect these regularly. Cheques only, please. Thank you for your ongoing, generous financial support.
Do you know someone unable to access Facebook, Youtube or the internet? The Dial-a-Sermon number is (365) 656-0276 (note: this is a long distance call, so you’ll need a Canada-wide calling plan). Please reach out to folk you know in the congregation relying on phone connections.
Your congregation’s Pandemic Response Team continues their Sewing Initiative and Food Drive. Contact Brenda Bourdeau or the church office to receive a non-medical mask or to donate non-perishable food items.
Finally, we all miss seeing the children of Strathroy United Church. Your young, energetic, and hope-filled faces bring us joy. I invite the congregation’s children to email me pictures of their mother’s day creations (cards, gifts, breakfast-in-bed), and I will feature these pictures in the May 17th worship video. (Kids, remember to get adult permission before you send pictures.)
I hope to see you Sunday morning from 9:30am – 10:30am. No need to wear your Sunday best. No need to shave. Just check in so we can see your face or hear your voice. You are an important member of the Strathroy United Church family.
Rev. Dr. Brad Morrison
