Hello Church family and friends,
We call the weeks after Easter the Easter Season. This is a season of hope and blessing. Tomorrow morning we will be blessed indeed to be witnessing the baptism of Marco Mak. If you want to watch it live, you may do so in person or join us on-line. Our service starts at 10am:
Following the baptism we will join with other Canadian Baptist churches to hear about the Global mission work of Canadian Baptist Ministries. CBM has prepared a special Sunday worship service for “Solidarity Sunday” For us at TCBC, this will be a good lead into May which is our Missions month. Throughout the month we will be hearing updates from our mission partners.
Like me, you are probably receiving notices from school, the workplace or hearing of friends who caught the latest COVID variant. I’m thankful that each one of my friends has recovered from this latest wave with no lingering effects. The disease is no joke though. Please make the choices you need to keep yourselves and your family safe.
We have made a choice as a church to move ahead with the next phase of our reopening plan and that is to have in-person children’s ministry starting in May. Our single aim is to provide the best environment for the discipleship of our youngest population. Working in coordination with the Mandarin congregation and the Children’s Ministry dept., we will begin with having our Bible teaching and Children’s music ministry at TCBC for the month of May. We hope to be able in June to move over to the Chinese Presbyterian Church which will allow us to add gym time to our children program. If you have any questions please direct them to me and/or attend our monthly members meeting to hear our proposal. (If you don’t have the Zoom link to attend our Monthly members meeting, please let me know and I can forward it to you.)
And of course, if you like working with children and/or would like to share in the Children’s music ministry, please step up to help as this is a very rewarding way to serve and influence the life of our young ones.
We are over 50% registered for our Children’s VBS camp that takes place Aug 8-12. If you have children K-G6 and or know of those with children who would like to attend a daycamp with fun activities and Bible teaching, here is the registration link:
Lastly, we have received approval for hiring helpers for our Children’s Ministry under the Canada Summer Jobs program. If you are between 15-30 and/or know of anyone interested in working in this area over the summer, please look over the job description attached or follow this link:
