ADVENT AT SPIRIT WEST (it starts on November 29, 2020)
ZOOM Coffee Hour – Sundays in Advent One thing that people have said about church online, is that they miss the opportunity to chat with people over coffee after the service. Well, for the Sundays in Advent we are going to try a virtual coffee houron ZOOM. At 11:30 am on each Sunday in Advent, you can ZOOM in with others from the congregation for a visit over a cup of coffee (or tea, or whatever…). This is a trial, and if it is successful, we will continue it. You do not need to register in advance, just click on the link.So, starting on Sunday, November 29 at 11:30 am ZOOM to https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85252850387?pwd=NmhhV0VvbjhEVERQajFDNm90cXpqdz09 for our coffee hour.
Advent Small Group Study – Now is the time We will be having a virtual small group study on ZOOM on the four Wednesdays in December from 1:30 to 3:00 pm. The Study is called “Now is the Time.” The series begins by re-imagining the Advent and Christmas stories in the time of COVID-19 : - When Mary Couldn’t Hug Elizabeth. - When all Joseph Could Do was Dream. - When Angels Couldn’t Sing. - When Shepherds Were Sheltering in Place - When Borders Where Closed. Registration is required for the study, so that I can send out the resource material each week. Just email me, firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church.
October 28, 2020 AN UPDATE ON RE-OPENING (It’s not yet) Re-opening the church for in-person worship was a again topic of consideration at the Spirit West Church Board Zoom Meeting on October 28, 2020. After thoughtful discussion of the results of last month's congregational survey and in light of the escalation on COVID-19 cases in Edmonton, the Board decided that we cannot reopen the church for worship at this time. However, the Reopening Committee will continue to monitor the situation and will continue to develop the plan for our re-opening.
