COVID-19 Response

Learning to be a Church at Distance -  Our response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
Amidst the concerns around the rapidly changing environment of COVID-19 and the constant influx of media reports, we pause to remember that our God is sovereign and His ministry will continue in spite of this new situation we are experiencing. After prayerful consideration, we have made the decision to alter our church service and church community experiences to proactively minimize and prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

The change is a move away from physical gatherings to digital gatherings such as online church (at our normal times), virtual meetings and phone. While the church staff team will still be working at the church building, gatherings of kids, youth and adults will be held through digital means. We will enhance our care for each other through the following:
  • Prayer - If you need prayer, please advise us through our online prayer request or by calling the church office. If you would like to join the online Prayer Team, please let us know through our contact form selecting the Join the Online Prayer Team topic.
  • Compassion - If you need assistance in this challenging time, please let us know through our contact form selecting the Compassion topic.
  • Offerings – We encourage you to continue to support the ministry of our church by using our online giving function.  
  • Travel – We have postponed non-essential travel including the short-term mission trip to Belize.
  • If you would like, let the church know of any COVID-19 related concerns. Please let us know through our contact form selecting the COVID-19 topic.
  • We are exploring innovative ideas and creative ways to continue serving by providing love, care and guidance to others, especially those who may be isolated, lonely, in fear or in need. If you are interested in joining in this, please let us know through our contact form selecting the I'm Interested in Serving topic. 
These days, we are learning how to be the church and how to do church at a distance. Let’s be in prayer together, that we would be filled with a sense of hope, not fear, knowing that nothing separates us from God’s love. We look fully to God and trust in Him.
NOTE:  This includes the schools that operate at our campuses including Strathcona Christian Elementary, Strathcona Christian Secondary and Treehouse Preschool.
