Stevens Road United Baptist Church Family;
This is the first COVID update letter that I have needed to write this year. And to be honest I had hoped that I would not have to write one at all. However, the growing number of COVID cases in April 2021 has required that I do. As the cases have risen the province has wisely tightened regulations.
As of the Morning of April 23rd, Premier Ian Rankin on behalf of the province announced a number of regulations being imposed across the HRM. The regulation that most directly impacts us is lowering the number of people allowed to gather to 5 in places of worship and 5 visitors to your home for the next four weeks. This limit means all in person services, and all in person Youth Ministry programs will move back to being digital only.
During this time only the Pastors, the Trustees, the Sexton, and the Treasurer will have consistent access to the building to allow for insurance building checks, maintenance, accounting, recording of the services, and other work needed. If you need access to the building for some reason please check with one of the Trustees or one of the Pastors to arrange a time when you can come.
Another update will come out in a few weeks but until then let me remind you all of the ways you can grow in your faith in Jesus and connect as a body;
Each week we are having a digital church service that includes children’s time, prayer, announcements, bible reading and preaching. An order of service is also being e-mailed out each week.
