Dear Saint David’s United Church Community,
We want to update you on Saint David’s United Church plan regarding coronavirus (COVID-19). We know many of you are very concerned. With the situation developing on almost a daily basis, we wish to advise that the church will remain closed based upon advice from health officials and The United Church of Canada. We will keep you updated as the situation evolves, and we hope this will not be for too long a period. We encourage you to reach out to each other in these difficult times. We are all here for each other. Please do not feel that you have to get through this on your own. If you require assistance having groceries or prescriptions picked up, please contact Alicia as we have volunteers who have offered to help at this time.
If you are feeling lonely, please reach out to Alicia or join one of the prayer conference calls on Tuesday mornings at 10AM or Thursday evenings at 6:30PM. Call 1-587-405-1252 and enter code 5450329#.
If you want to help, but are not sure what you could do, please reach out (Alicia 977-0005/Christopher 651-9694) and we may have a suggestion for you based on the needs of the community.
The Board also wants to express our extreme thanks and appreciation to Alicia for all her efforts and contributions through this unprecedented time, and Christopher for his great supporting role. Please keep them in your prayers.
We would like to for a minute draw your attention to our finances. We want to thank all who are on PAR. For those who contribute by envelope or those on PAR who may wish to make single lump sum contributions, then we would encourage you to mail your cheque to Saint David’s as our mail is being picked up. A second option is to visit our website, and just below the picture of our church you will see a box that says DONATE NOW. This is a service through CanadaHelps. This link will take you right through to Saint David’s page, and you can make single one time or monthly donations to Saint David’s through your credit card.
Update from search committee: Deadlines for applications have closed and they are moving to the next steps in the process.
We hold in our prayers those who are dealing with this virus: communities, patients, families, health care professionals and all the essential service workers. We are all aware that the situations are changing daily, and we will keep you updated on a regular basis.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact any of our board members, Alicia, or the church office. Stay safe and God Bless.
Executive of the Official Board
