Celebrating Easter as a Church Family

main image

Thank you for joining us to worship together over the Easter weekend. I loved the Good Friday and Easter online services and enjoyed worshiping our great God with our church family on this important weekend. We estimate that there were about a thousand people who participated in each service, and I am so encouraged to know that God is still a priority for our church family even when we are not able to gather in person. I also enjoyed our outdoor communion services on Easter afternoon. Thank you for braving the cold and participating in a unique service. I hope it was a meaningful time for all of you who participated, and I look forward to more opportunities to gather in person safely and responsibly.

Our God is worthy of our praise, and we continue to be amazed by his grace and mercy in our lives. This weekend was a reminder of the power of the cross and the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. As Pastor Jordan reminded us on Sunday, the resurrection of Jesus slices through all darkness and brokenness and gives us living hope! During the most difficult time of our lives, we have a Saviour and a Redeemer that pursues us with love and passion. Let us continue to exalt Jesus and proclaim his good news to this world!

BabyGoRound Donations Update

Thank you to everyone who came out last Saturday to our Spring Drive-thru and donated items for BabyGoRound! Together we collected 266 items for the BabyGoRound team!

Please see the following note from Alyssa Gibson, BabyGoRound Marketing Manager, with more details about the collection:

"Thank you, SDBC! Together we collected 61 sleepers, 109 tops/bottoms/onesies, 15 hooded towels, and 81 wash cloths! I really loved hearing from church families how much they enjoyed selecting items to donate. As I was going through the items and sorting today, it was so clear that they had thoughtfully and joyfully done this. From the gift bags to the selected phrases or graphics on the clothing, it was obvious to me that there was an understanding and shared heart in letting families know that they are cared for and supported."

Easter Weekend Services

main image

In light of the most recent health order update in our province, we are no longer able to gather in person for indoor services. We have pivoted yet again to the ever-changing reality and we are now offering the following services for the Easter weekend:

  • Good Friday Communion Service – April 2nd @ 7PM via livestream
  • Easter Sunday Service – April 4th @ 11AM via livestream
  • Easter Sunday Outdoor Communion Service – April 4th @ 2PM and 3:30PM in the courtyard

You will be able to access our online Good Friday and Easter Sunday services on our church online platform by clicking here. Furthermore, we are offering a special outdoor communion service at 2PM and 3:30PM on Easter Sunday in our courtyard. This will be a different service than our larger Easter Sunday service that will be livestreamed in the morning. For those of you who are planning to attend these in-person outdoor services, we strongly encourage you to still participate in the Easter service online at 11AM with the rest of the church family. This outdoor service will be a special in-person gathering where we can come together to take communion and participate in a more intimate and reflective service in the courtyard. You will be required to pre-register for this outdoor service if you plan on attending. Please click here to register for the outdoor service.

We hope we will see all of you online for the Good Friday and Easter Sunday services, and some of you in person for the outdoor communion service!
