Thanksgiving 2020 Letter

Dear Friends:
We are living in unprecedented times. How many times have you heard this in the past six months? We have all had to make adjustments to our daily lives because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
During these times when our lives have been disrupted in so many ways it may be difficult to find things for which we can be thankful. But first of all, we can all be thankful for the front line health workers who are there at our hospitals in case we need them. They are also hard at work in our long-term care facilities and seniors’ residences. They all work long shifts wearing cumbersome personal protective equipment.
Next, we can be thankful for the many essential workers in our grocery stores, on farms, working in transit, moving freight and many others.
Closer to home, we can be thankful to Brian Kai and his tech team and the Worship Team for making Zoom audio and video worship possible every Sunday. It is not like in-church worship but it still enables us to experience worship and a sense of community which would not otherwise be possible. Thanks to Rev. Cindy, Karen Quinton, Lauren Lazar, Penny Tibbles Cookson and the scripture readers for making the effort to adapt to this new way of doing worship.
If you would like to make a Thanksgiving donation, support other areas of the church or make a memorial donation you may do so in one of the following ways. Please be aware that even though we are not having in-church worship services most of the expenses continue.

Please join into the Zoom worship service every Sunday morning at 11 am.
