The ‘new normal’ continues with prayer and fellowship – contact your LIFE group leaders for when and how that is happening. Or use the contact form if you’re not part of one but would like to join in.
Evening prayer @8pm
Maybe it is easier to concentrate in the evening, after the children are in bed? If you’d like to join a small group, via Zoom, for a couple of Bible readings and to share and receive prayer reach out to Joey, Natalie or use the contact form.
Activities for various age groups will be live on the CBC Junior Church channel on Sunday morning.
Zoom Meetings for Junior Church
There are now Zoom meetings for junior church children (school years 6,7,8) on Tuesday evenings at 7pm. If this is something you think your children would be interested in and/or benefit from, please contact either Wendy R or John P (in the directory) or use the contact form so we can issue login numbers etc.
Can you help?
