Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Fifth Sunday in Season of Creation

When we think about champions in the fight against climate change we usually think first of scientists and activists. We probably don’t think often of poets. Maybe then, on this Sunday that we celebrate the feast of St. Francis of Assissi, who wrote one of the most famous hymns to creation, we need to think twice about the power of poetry. Join us in that reflection on Fifth and final Sunday in the Season of Creation.

Today’s worship service will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel at 10:30 am. Join us live, or watch the video here at a later time.

Fourth Sunday in Season of Creation

“Thoughts and prayers” have taken a bad rap in recent days. Especially when it comes to a problem as imposing as climate change, prayer hardly feels like an effective response. On second thought…join us on this Fourth Sunday in the Season of Creation to explore prayer as a weapon in the fight for our climate.  

Today’s worship service will available in-person (to those who have registered), and will also be live-streamed on our YouTube channel at 10:30 am. Join us live, or watch the video here at a later time.

Third Sunday in Season of Creation

What the heck is an “oikos”? And what does it have to do with saving the earth? Or with Jesus and his clueless band of disciples? So many questions. Join us as we seek some answers and go deeper into the Season of Creation. 

Today’s worship service will available in-person (to those who have registered), and will also be live-streamed on our YouTube channel at 10:30 am. Join us live, or watch the video here at a later time.

Second Sunday in Season of Creation

“Where’s your mind at?” Maybe thats a question you’ve been asked before. It’s what Jesus as much as asks Peter in our gospel reading today. And it’s a good question for us to be asking as we continue our journey through the Season of Creation and reflect on our discipleship as stewards of creation.

Today we welcome back in person those who have registered to attend; may this be the first step in our return to full fellowship in the very near future.

Today’s worship service will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel at 10:30 am. Join us live, or watch the video here at a later time.

First Sunday in Season of Creation

On this Sunday of Labour Day weekend we hear a reflection from one of our members on the connection between her life’s work and her faith. It’s also the First Sunday of the Season of Creation. And so we reflect on the work we’ve all been given to care for creation and make this world a home for all in which to dwell and flourish.

You’re invited to join us at the church this Sunday afternoon to make creation-themed chalk art on the parking lot. You can also colour a picture to add to one of three new beautiful SOC banners Claire Thompson has created. And of course…there will be treats! Bring a mask and drop in any time between 2-4. Stay as long as you like and let your creative spirit soar!

Twenty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time

Questions. Conundrums. Mysteries. Our gospel reading today has them all…with a healthy dose of good news thrown into the mix as well. Join us as we reflect on what it means to live as disciples in a world where answers are sometimes impossible to find.

Mid-Week Worship

This Wednesday, August 18, at 7:30 pm, Pastor Eric and Elina will be leading another mid-week outdoor worship service. This will be an opportunity to gather for in-person worship under the beauty of our trees. We will follow a very informal liturgy which Elina has put together. All are welcome.

Bring a mask and a lawn chair (if you have one). Chairs will be provided for those who don’t have one. 

Feast of Mary, Mother of our Lord

This week we are taking a short break from the gospel of John and Jesus’s teachings about bread, and celebrating the feast day of Mary, the mother of our Lord. We are not wandering too far, though. Today’s gospel text is Mary’s song that gives glory to God who is on the side of the hungry and the poor, who has brought down the powerful and lifted up the lowly. Join us to wonder what Mary’s song means in our time. 

Today’s worship service will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel at 10:30 am. Join us live, or watch the video here at a later time.
