Church Update - March 21, 2020

PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO READ THIS IMPORTANT NOTE FROM OUR PASTOR:

One need only turn on the news for a short time, or take a quick look on-line, to realize that our world is rapidly changing in response to the current pandemic. In light of this new reality we want to respond in an appropriate manner as a body of believers; neither under, nor over reacting.

This past week the province of Manitoba declared a State of Emergency.  The provisions of this State of Emergency limit public gatherings, including religious services, to no more than 50 persons, and require individuals to follow the published social distancing guidelines.  

Therefore, effective immediately, Parkside Gospel Church is suspending our on-site worship services, Sunday School classes, Youth Group and Awana programs.  

We will, however, continue to worship the Lord - it will just look a bit different than we are used to. 

Beginning this Sunday (March 22, 2020) we will be live streaming our services on our YouTube channel.  Service times will remain the same (10:45 - 12:00) and we invite you to join us as we do "church" in a new way.  If you can't "attend" the live streaming service you can watch at a time that works for you as the videos of our services will be recorded and available on our YouTube channel.

Please take note - March 14, 2020

PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO READ THIS IMPORTANT NOTE FROM OUR PASTOR:

One need only turn on the news for a short time, or take a quick look on-line, to realize that our world is rapidly changing in light of the current pandemic. In light of this new reality we want to respond in an appropriate manner as a body of believers; neither under, nor over reacting.

While it may be necessary in the near future to refrain from coming together for worship for awhile, the current plan is to go ahead with our church service / winter picnic tomorrow with the following caveats: 

  1. If you have recently returned from travelling, and if there is any possibility that you may have come into contact with COVID-19, please stay home and self-isolate until such time as you can be deemed clear of the virus.
  2. If you are sick, please stay home. Not only are you protecting others by doing so, you are also protecting yourself from potentially contracting additional illness through a weakened immune system.
  3. It’s true that we like to greet each other with handshakes and hugs … but let’s refrain from these things as we come together over the next few weeks until the virus has been controlled or burnt itself out.
  4. Be sure to practice good hygiene – washing of hands, use of hand sanitizer, coughing into your elbow instead of your hands, etc.
  5. The message this Sunday will seek to address how we can respond to the coronavirus, and the fear that it has engendered in our world, as Christians. If you are not able to join us this week, but would like a copy of the message, please feel free to contact me and I can send a copy to you via e-mail.
  6. Pray – particularly for doctors and nurses – our frontline health care workers who will be facing this challenge head on.
  7. And finally, let us not walk in fear, but in a deep and abiding faith. While the world is changed, God is unchanging – He is the same yesterday, as He is today, and as He will be tomorrow. Our hope and strength are in Him above all things!

 In Christian love,

 Pastor Tim Diack

How To Find Us ...

 

We’re located about 10 minutes south east of Dauphin. From highway 5, between Dauphin and Ochre River, you will follow the sign for Dauphin Bible Camp and then, once on the gravel, you will take your first left following the sign for Parkside or "AWANA" and you will see the church on the left side of the road.
