update: Wednesday, March 18

Coronavirus – COVID-19 Update

Dear Friends,

This Sunday, I’ll be sharing a message with the Stone Church Family called “Not Afraid” addressing what to do in uncertain times.

As disciples of Jesus, our actions and decisions should be different. Why?
We are not of this world! We are not to be conformed to this world’s thinking.
We do not live like those who have no hope!—We are Different!
That is why we are “Not Afraid.”

We hope you can join us for our Stone @ Home Livestream Sunday at 11:00 am.

Connect with us online Live (or On-Demand) from your computer, mobile device or smart TV.
Visit live.mystone.ca or search for “Stone Church Toronto” in your YouTube App.

We will be Livestreaming a portion of our Midweek connection service Wednesday (today) at 7 pm. This will provide a great opportunity to test our Livestream if you have not connected before. We have a moderated chat via YouTube Live to help you connect with others and receive any technical help.

After many meetings and prayerful consideration, we are going to officially close the 45 Davenport Campus to the public as of Thursday, March 19th until at least Saturday, April 4th. The pastoral and administrative staff will remain accessible to you via email and phone. We will be prioritizing care for those most isolated in this season.

Our team is hard at work planning with the Board, the LIFE Club leadership, and other ministries to provide support to our seniors and other vulnerable individuals in our community.
Please call the church office if you need assistance or are aware of someone else who does.

We also have a plan to help parents, guardians, and their children with resources to keep everyone engaged during the long break. Coordinating our Sunday and Easter Weekend Services remains a key focus along with providing clear communication to you.

Please contact your small group or ministry leader to find out specific information about your meetings.

Let’s take every opportunity to connect in meaningful ways.

We continue to pray for you daily. Hope to see you online soon.

Blessings,

Pastor Godfrey

Coronavirus – COVID-19 Update

Dear Friends,

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.”
Psalm 46:1-3

Our hope is in the Lord. Whenever our world is shaken, it is good to remind ourselves of this unchanging truth.

Our leadership team has been praying for you. We plan to conduct this Sunday’s service but are monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and following recommendations from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Toronto Public Health. On Sunday we will provide further details. Please partner with us to provide a clean and safe environment for everyone.

What we can all do:

  • Wash our hands frequently for at least 20 seconds at a time. Use soap and water when possible.
  • If no soap and water are available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60%-95% alcohol.
  • In addition to hand soap available in the bathrooms, Stone Church has a supply of alcohol-based hand sanitizer dispensers available for use.
  • Cover our mouths and noses with our forearms when coughing and sneezing.
  • Greet one another with smiles and methods that minimize close contact (e.g. elbow taps instead of handshakes or hugs).
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Please stay home if you are not feeling well, have a health concern that puts you at higher risk, or have travelled outside of Canada within the last 14-days and join our Stone @ Home Livestream. Let’s love, pray for and support our communities during this season.

Blessings,

Pastor Godfrey
Stone Church
