Second Outdoor Service

We will have our second outdoor service of the year this Sunday on July 24 at 11:00 AM. Therefore, NO SERVICE WILL BE HELD AT CHURCH DOWNTOWN.

Here are the details:

Meeting location: Parc La Fontaine at 11AM (close to the parking lot on Av. Calixa Lavallée (Sherbrooke side), behind the 24 W. bus stop on Sherbrooke).

Lunch:
There will be a potluck lunch after the service. (There is a BBQ if anyone wishes to use).
*Please sign up on the google spreadsheet so we know what to expect and prepare accordingly.
*Please note that for the main dish, the cost of preparation will be reimbursed by church upon request.

***If by any chance, no one signs up for the main dish, the lunch will be “bring your own lunch” style.***

*IMPORTANT* If the weather isn’t suitable for an outdoor service, by default the service will be held at church; keep an eye on our website or our Facebook page for updates. Let’s pray that the weather will be good!

Lastly, just a reminder that though it is an outdoor service, it is still a full service, thus a sermon will be preached and offering will be collected.

Hope to see you all there!
