Noticings – April 6, 2021


April 6,  2021

I am on study leave this week so there will not be a worship service livestreamed from Faith United this weekend (April 11th). Zeljka and I will return at our usual 10:30 am time on Sunday April 18th.

Rather than try to arrange for a pulpit supply minister to come in and learn our technology in this strange season our Faith United Council decided it would be better to offer our congregation some other online options. One of the positives to emerge from this season of pandemic is that there are now hundreds of United Churches offering online worship. Here are a few options that I would recommend (again):

Parkdale United Church – Ottawa
Rev. Dr. Anthony Bailey is widely regarded as one of our denomination’s best preachers. Their service is at 10:30 am. Click the link to access their website, and then scroll down a bit for the video.

Wall St. United Church – Brockville
Rev. Kimberly Heath is a fine preacher who serves in Brockville. Their service is at 10:00am. Click the link to directly access their live service.

Metropolitan United Church – Toronto
Rev. Karen Bowles is the interim minister at Metropolitan, long one of the “tall steeples” of the United Church. Their service is at 10:40 am. Click the link to directly access their live service.

Or, if you’re the adventurous type, here is a link to the entire catalogue of known United Church online services. You could find something from anywhere across the whole country!

Or if you’re the really ‘un-adventurous’ type, here’s a link to Faith United’s ‘the Sunday after Easter’ service (from last year).

I hope you enjoy your online worship with our friends and neighbours across this United Church of ours. And I look forward to being with you again on the 18th.

Rev. Larry
