Dear friends,

As we approach our third Sunday of cancelled worship services at Strathroy United Church, I want you to know that your congregation continues important ministries in the community.

Worship. The recorded worship service (including children’s time) will be posted online Sunday morning. You can find it on our Facebook page.

Fellowship. Join our Zoom chat room Sunday morning from 9:30 – 10:30 am. You’ll find the link on our Facebook page. Or simply copy this link into your internet browser: https://westernuniversity.zoom.us/my/bradmorrison

Teaching. Our Wednesday morning Bible study continues online, from 10:30 – 11:30 am. All are welcome. Use this Zoom link to join us live: https://westernuniversity.zoom.us/my/bradmorrison

Outreach. The Council Executive approved an ad hoc Pandemic Response Team, which will coordinate the congregation’s outreach activities in the community. Look for information on our Facebook and webpage about the upcoming food drive to support our community partner agencies serving the vulnerable during the pandemic.

I encourage you to participate in the online options above. Even if you only have a limited time to check in, let others know how you are doing. I am encouraged by stories of parishioners phoning one another, leaving meals at doorsteps, and delivering groceries.

As always, I am available if you need to talk by phone (519-330-0074) or Zoom. Let us continue to hold one another in prayer, trusting that we are not alone — We live in God’s world.

Yours faithfully,
Rev. Dr. Brad Morrison
