Greeting in Jesus Name!
We trust that God’s presence remains alive in your hearts and minds. Paul exhorts us in Philippians 4:7, “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
The peace of God, in these times, is of great consolation to each of us, as we continue to navigate this ever-changing season in which we are called to live. No doubt, these past four months have challenged us in many different ways and has brought significant change to our world and to the way we go about our day to day personal lives. With that said, I know that God is still God and His Word declares, “He changes not” (Micah 3:6) AMEN!!!
As you are aware, our Province has moved into Alert Level 2 effective June 25th. This level makes provision for worship service gatherings but with significant restrictions as set forth by our Government and Health Canada…
- Congregational singing is not permitted, which is one of the key elements of worship.
- Limits around physical distancing prevents us from visiting and enjoying fellowship together.
- Attendance is limited to maximum of 50 people, including our volunteer ministry teams.
- Significant challenges around managing the practical elements of gathering (sanitization of property, registering of attendee, etc.)
Due to those restrictions, the General Executives Officers and our General Executive Committee of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Newfoundland and Labrador (PAONL) has made the difficult decision that our denomination not open our buildings at this time. In a piece of correspondence received from our General Secretary-Treasurer he states, “The General Executive Committee has resolved that the reopening of all PAONL Assemblies for public worship/ministry gatherings will be deferred until September”.
We, along with many others, are disappointed that we are not able to gather physically in our churches, however, we have decided to initiate drive-in services for the summer months starting Sunday July 12, 2020 at 3 P.M. and continuing throughout the summer. The NL Government Guidelines for drive-in services are attached. Please respect the guidelines, as well as our Parking Attendants, as they assist you with your attendance at our drive-in services.
Also, Pastor Bess (Moral Support) and Pastor Tracey (2 O’ Clock Talk) will continue online with their mid-week Devotional/Bible Studies. Please note: Due to Vacation Schedules during the Summer months, our Sunday Morning Online service will only be as announced.
Our Pastoral Staff remains on call for Pastoral Care and Ministry. They can be reached by calling the Church.
As we move forward in these times together, may we continue to rely on God and the power of the Holy Spirit to provide us with all wisdom, strength and courage needed, in order to make the most appropriate decisions in every situation going forward.
We hope to be back worshiping together again real soon, but until then, let’s continue to be safe and honour the protocols of our Public Health Authorities.
Sincere Thanks and Blessings,
Pastor K M Bess (Lead Pastor) & Church Board
