In obedience to God (Romans 13:1; 1 Peter 2:13-17), we are submitting to the authority governing this health issue and to show proper respect to others as we continue to worship in Community. The Ontario government's Step 3 reopening requirements no longer specifies an occupancy limit, other than to ensure families are socially distanced. Masks remains a requirement. Like many Health Departments, the Durham Region Health Department continues to strongly discourage singing in churches, restaurants, bars and outdoor patios.
Our song service utilizes worship videos and we encourage the Biblical practice of worship through listening, meditating on the lyrics, and setting our minds to respond to the message by the way we live daily (Nehemiah 8:1-12). If you prefer to remain at home, the sermon is live-streamed on Facebook Live @cpcbeaverton.ca. Past sermons are found on this website.
Jesus commands us to "Love one another" (John 13:34) and we are to "be patient, bearing with others in love" (Ephesians 4:2). We respect the fact that people who are fully vaccinated may be inconvenienced in following COVID-19 precautions. We respect the need to protect those who have not yet had the opportunity to receive their first or second vaccination. We respect those who have chosen for personal reasons to delay or refuse vaccination.
We invite you to join us in person and comply with the current restrictions, or to watch our sermons online.
