Welcome to the first official update for 2021. As a New Year dawns may we look forward with hope, faith, and expectation for what God will do as this year unfolds. There are many reasons to be discouraged and dismayed but our hope lies elsewhere, is the sure foundation that is found in Christ.
Here is this week’s newsletter. Thanks so much for taking the time to connect with us and staying up to date. Again, this is a long update but has a number of important items. As a region, we have now entered into Stage 3 as announced by the government this week. As a church, nothing has really changed in terms of the numbers that will be allowed to meet indoors, but the one detail that was important to note is that this stage has an indefinite end date.
This week’s newsletter is here so sit back, relax, and take the 5 minutes to catch up on the happenings at Village Green.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Canada Day. I was a year old when my family left our home in Piraeus Greece (the harbour suburb of Athens) and crossed the Atlantic to start a new life in Canada. I have to say, after many years, this past Canada Day found me truly thankful to be here. Not that I was never thankful before, but due to the things we see happening globally, this past Canada Day celebration was one filled with gratitude and blessing for what we enjoy here that others can only dream of.
