COVID-19 Updates

MAY 20

Hello Redemption St. Thomas,

 

We just want to extend our deepest thankfulness for how God has been using you through these past few months. You are constantly in our prayers.

 

Over the past couple of months, we have been working on getting our online presence more up to date. We want to make sure that you know the best ways to find out more information and to contact us.

 

  1. We are on social media. This is often the best source for the most up-to-date information. Find us on Facebook: @rbcstthomas; Twitter: @rbcstthomas; and Instagram: @rbcstthomas.
  2. Almost every Tuesday & Thursday, we are posting updates, serving opportunities, and encouragement on our social media platforms.
  3. We also have a YouTube channel where we are posting all our videos and our full worship services on Sunday.

 

We want to make sure that you are able to find these resources if you desire to use them. Please let us know if you are having any trouble locating any one of these resources.

 

Finally, we have been steadily working on improving our communication through our website at rbcstthomas.ca. Through the website, you can find links to the current and previous sermons, the latest updates, connection cards, and prayer request forms. We love hearing from you so please feel free to use any of these methods to communicate with us.

 

You are loved.

 

God bless,

 

Staff @ Redemption St. Thomas.

MAY 11

It has been ten weeks since we have been able to meet and worship together. There is something wonderful about coming together, seeing one another, and being together with the body of Christ. We miss it, and we long for it again. It has become clear how precious our weekly gatherings are. How much we need the body of Christ — even on a Sunday morning — to sit under the preaching of the word and to worship together.

 

Modern technology has allowed us to stay connected more than we could have without it, yet the reality is that this quarantine has brought about a very real separation. We all feel it, and the media platforms which allow us to connect still do not satisfy our need for the fellowship that God created us for. It is hard to be disconnected for such a long period of time; even more with all the new relationships that were being formed.

 

We want to extend a few encouragements to you from our elders.

 

1. You truly are missed.

 

We long to see you and to connect with you. We desire to know how you are doing.

 

2. You are loved.

 

There is a unique love within a church that I am not sure exists in any other corporate setting. Although people within a church may not know each person personally, the love of God unites us and binds our hearts together as one body.

 

3. We are praying for everyone that attends Redemption St Thomas.

 

We would also like to pray with you. Everyone has been affected by this quarantine in different ways, and you do not need to go through it alone. In Christ we are joined as one body, so let us be joined in prayer. If you have a specific
need, please reach out and let us know. Or if you would simply like to connect and pray together, our elders would love to pray with you.

You are loved.

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with your wherever you go.” ~ Joshua 1:9 (ESV) 

 

Following the direction of the Premier of Ontario, our offices remain closed. We have been given permission from Southwestern Health Unit for a small team to record the Sunday sermon as we continue to practice social distancing and sanitizing procedures

 

We will continue to weekly post links to our sermon at https://www.sermonaudio.com/solo/gfc and will continue to post updates through our social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram). If you need any help, want prayer, or have any questions please contact us at [email protected]. Our email and phone are being regularly monitored. We will also continue to have a weekly Zoom meeting on Sunday at 11:00 AM for anyone who would like one-on-one prayer with an elder. The link for this will be posted with the weekly sermon. 

 

We would encourage you to take the time to email, text, or call five other people in our church as you are led by God. Keeping in touch with others, even virtually, is a great way for us as the body of Christ to care for one another. 

 

Finally, let us be faithful in sharing the good news of Jesus Christ as we show the hope that we have in Christ. He is our hope and the ultimate answer to all our needs. 

 

We are continuing in prayer for you all!
