Attendance at public gatherings such as church services and activities presents a risk of contracting COVID-19. The symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment, and for the majority – especially for children and young adults – an illness due to COVID-19 is generally minor.
However, for some people, it can cause serious illness and even death. Around 1 in every 5 people who are infected with COVID-19 develop difficulty in breathing and require hospital care. People who are aged over 60 years and people who have underlying medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, respiratory disease, or hypertension are among those who are at greater risk of developing severe or critical illness if infected with the virus.
Faith Church seeks to provide a safe environment for attendees as we strive to enact all appropriate government recommendations (social distancing, face coverings, disinfecting touchpoints, etc.). However, there will always be some degree of risk of contracting COVID-19 when in the presence of other people and so each individual must choose for themselves whether they will attend. Should you attend any programs or activities of Faith Church, you are acknowledging you have been advised of such risks and you have agreed to assume all risks associated with COVID – 19. By your attendance, you are also acknowledging that you have agreed to release the officers, directors, employees, volunteers, and other representatives of Faith Church from any and all claims or causes of action that might arise by reason of you contracting COVID – 19. remember to bring face mask with you

Latest Update - June 12, 2020
The Ontario government is allowing churches to meet at 30% capacity starting Sunday June 14th. However, our leaders feel that this is still too early for us to get together safely in person. There will be a future review in early July by the leadership. In the meantime plans and protocols are being developed for when it is safe to gather together again – keep posted!
Program Status You can watch our Sunday Services online at 10 AM on Sunday here, or you can watch recordings of previous services here.
The church is still the church whether we can meet together on Sundays or not.
WE ARE the church wherever we are. Each of us represent Christ amongst our sphere of friends, family, and neighborhood. Many needs are arising which we as a church can address in caring for others - both amongst our own Faith Family as well as in the community. Some of Faith’s response will be made by the church - keep posted online for info and opportunities. Each of us will encounter opportunities to bring God’s love and peace into troubling and needy situations. In the early church it was the Christians who stayed while others fled the cities during times of plague. They cared for those abandoned by others - and God used them mightily to bring many into a relationship with Him. Let’s continually invite God to lead us in responding to the needs of others with love.
Many of Faith’s expenses are monthly - whether we’re meeting on Sundays or not. Post-dated checks or automatic withdrawals, as well as E-Transfers, are several ways to support Faith’s ministry during this time. Please speak with Anita if you’d like information about this.
May our Lord rich bless you and your family as you find your strength and confidence in Him!
