I write to you after a refreshing week’s break on the KZN South Coast. It was good to enjoy time with the family in the sun and the sea.
ON-SITE WORSHIP STARTING THIS SUNDAY
Anticipation is growing for the opening of onsite worship this Sunday. Holy Communion Services will be held at 7h30, 10h00 and 18h00, Children’s Church and Rooted Youth will be at 10h00, and pre-registration for all these events is necessary. Click HERE to pre-register. Registration closes on Thursday. Please arrive 15 minutes before the service to allow time for wellness screening. If you have not arrived by the start of the service, your seat will be allocated to those who are on standby. Only the main parking area will be open for parking. Please remember your mask and observe physical distancing. The sanctuary and toilets will be sanitised between services. If you wish to remain in your car for the worship service, please park near the church entrance. Online worship will still premiere at 8h30. Parents of pre-school children attending Children’s Church may wish to accompany them for the first week.
Condolences to Gina Brown on the passing of Andrew, and to Trish Laing on the passing of her father Rob. May you know God’s comfort and hope. Andrew’s memorial service is today at 11h00. Rob’s memorial service is Friday at 11h00
Tithes and Offerings for September were R472 600, R22 600 ahead of budget. For the year to date, we are just R11 600 behind budget on giving. Thank you for your faithful giving towards God’s work at West View.
LEADERS MEETING ON WEDNESDAY 21st OCTOBER, 19h00 via ZOOM
Please will all members of the Leaders meeting prioritise attendance at this meeting. We have important decisions to make about the restructuring of our missions. We also need your input as we discern God’s way forward for us as a congregation moving into 2021. The Zoom link will be emailed out with the agenda next week.
Support #Orangemaskfridays, an initiative of civil society groups including the South African Council of Churches. The colour is symbolic of the orange overalls which Covid-19 looters should be wearing – in prison. Sew your own orange mask and make a statement by wearing them every Friday leading up to December 9th, International Anti-Corruption Day. By wearing orange masks, we will effectively be telling the government and the private sector that we value our democracy and Constitution, and we refuse to sit by idly watching as greedy business ‘covidpreneurs’, politicians and public servants steal money that is meant to save lives during the pandemic.
Grace and Peace
