Easter 2020 Letter

Dear Members and Friends of Bayview United Church,
I don’t recall another time when our “normal lives” have been so
threatened and socially restricted. I appreciate and look forward to calls
and emails from family and friends. It fills my days and keeps me focused
on the people that are important in our lives and planning for the better
days to come. The Bayview United Church community is an important part
of my life and I am grateful that we stay connected through technology, as
we all do our part to keep our homes and neighbours safe.
We invite you to join the following BUC Conference Call Worship Services
during Holy Week.
Sunday, April 5th – 11:00 a.m. – Palm Sunday, with Holy Communion.
We invite you when you call in, to have a piece of bread or cracker and
a beverage, and together we will share the Lord’s Supper.
Friday, April 10th – 11:00 a.m. – Good Friday, to remember the last day
of Jesus’ life.
Sunday, April 12th – 11:00 a.m.- Easter Sunday, to celebrate the
resurrection of Jesus.
You can connect to these conference call worship services by dialing 416-
343-0138 or 1-866-602-5089, then enter conference ID 4835847#.
Although we are not physically able to be at BUC, our financial obligations
continue for our staff, for the daily operation of the building, and our
ongoing ministry including the Conference Call Worship Service. We need
your support to carry us through these unprecedented times. Please give
as you are able by mailing your donation cheque to the church or using the
Canada Helps link on the BUC website. You can also contact Kaz Shikaze
to set up a monthly preauthorized remittance (PAR), a program for United
Church congregations.
In these times, as in all times, we remember that God is with us, we are not alone. Thanks be to God.
Carol Carol MacLean, Chair of Council
