The Fulfilling Time

We’re in a holding pattern, with time to fill, while we wait out the pandemic and its restrictions, wait out the winter, and with families, wait out December’s longing for Christmas, while also wondering what on earth Christmas will be like this year.  How then can we “fulfill” this time? Make it count?

Below are just some of the ways that we plan on moving through this Fulfilling Time together. You’re warmly invited to participate.

Advent Worship

You’re invited to our Facebook page every Sunday at 10AM (ET) to participate in live worship. We aim to provide an online worship experience that’s spiritually fulfilling–not just filling.

Can’t participate live at 10? The sermon text and video clips will be posted here starting Sunday afternoon.

KidZoom for Children

You and your children are invited to gather on Sundays at 9AM (ET) on Zoom to connect with God and with each other (PJs and breakfast welcome). Contact Martha Randy, our Family and Youth Ministries Coordinator, for the Zoom link.

“Blue Christmas/Noël Bleu”

December 16 at 7:30 (ET)

A collaboration of the West Island United Churches and ORA, Loss & Living Program, this online gathering offers a time to enter into a space for grief and hope will be held across Zoom, Facebook live and YouTube Live.

You can participate on the platform that feels most comfortable for you–check back here soon for links and access details .

Christmas Cookies & Carols

On December 18 at half past three, pour yourself a cup of tea…and tune in for a festive afternoon Zoom party! Our Music Director, Douglas Knight, will be gifting us with a mini-concert and then we’ll get to have a Christmas carol sing-a-long-on-mute. You can register for this event here and sign up to make cookies to share here.

Children’s Christmas Eve

Families with children are invited to this interactive worship time on Zoom at 4PM (ET). Bring your hot chocolate and cozy blankets as we share the Christmas story. Contact Martha Randy, our Family and Youth Ministries Coordinator, for the Zoom link.

Christmas Eve Worship

You can tune in to this special worship on Facebook Live and later, here on the website in recorded form. We’ll be posting the exact worship time here soon.

All-Ages Epiphany Party

You’re invited to gather on Zoom for an Epiphany evening of star activities. Check back here for the Zoom link as the date gets closer.
