Shared Summer Services
Summer is here and the time is right for sharing our worship time with Kanata CRC. For the months of July and August, the Worship service time will be at 10 am with a coffee fellowship time afterwards. Pastor Rick and Pastor Chris will take turns preaching and will be working through a joint series called Holy Hyperbole: the confusing, fascinating and sometimes over-the-top sayings of Christ
Series Synopsis: No way! Did he just say that? Unfortunately, it is a common reaction to the tweets of world leaders, the catty behavior of celebrities and talk show hosts, even of Christians when they are found at their worst. Jesus spoke in hyperbole, too, but not to scandalize. He chose words we are perhaps not used to hearing in order to communicate deep, holy, and timeless truths.
Offerings: For the joint church services during the July/August summer months with Kanata Community CRC and Barrhaven Fellowship CRC, this is the process for church collections. Sometimes there will be the same cause for the two churches, other Sundays there will be separate causes for each church. For all Sundays, the Kanata collection bags will be used for Kanata members and the Barrhaven plates will be used for Barrhaven members, collected at the same time. Kanata also has available a debit/credit machine that is to be used only by Kanata members, not BFCRC.
Summer Sunday School: Little ones aged 3 yrs to Grade 4 are invited to join us downstairs for a movie and coloring time. Children will be dismissed during the service as usual. Parents, please remember to promptly pick-up your little ones up downstairs after the service. Leaders and helpers will come from both churches.
Nursery: Nursery care is available for our little ones: newborn to 2 yrs old. The nursery will be staffed with people from both churches.
Parking: We’d like for both churches to continue to park either on the street or at the library so as to leave space in the main parking lot for guests and visitors. We all know what it is like to come into an unfamiliar place only to find nowhere to park. Leaving space for others is one way to practice hospitality. Those with mobility concerns are certainly welcome to park close to the church.
