November 27, 2022 - First Advent
Pastor George Hodgson
Welcome to Saanich Peninsula Presbyterian Church.
Our worship takes place at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday morning both in-person and online (via the SPPC YouTube Livestream button above). We invite you to join us each week as we continue to explore and follow the Word of God. Following the service, there will be a fellowship time at the back of the sanctuary.
While British Columbia Public Health restrictions for worship have been lifted; nonetheless:
Please, perform a health check prior to attending.
Masks are no longer required, but feel free to wear one if you prefer.
Please, use provided hand sanitizers.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
News for Sunday, December 4, 2022
I very much enjoyed the meals during our holiday in Mexico last week. The food was delicious and the company was delightful. A good meal always seems to bring us joy and all the more so when we can eat in the company of good friends. Perhaps that is why we so enjoy our luncheons here at SPPC. In a meal together we receive nourishment not only of our bodies but of our souls. It is therefore not surprising that a meal is a symbol of grace as we gather in the Lord's Supper. God nourishes us! This Sunday we celebrate communion together once again. If you cannot attend, please contact your elder and we would be happy to bring it to you during the next week.
A warm welcome awaits you at our morning worship which begins, as usual, at 10:00 a.m. If you are unable to attend, please join with us via our web stream here.
Our scriptures this week will be:
The choir will be singing Prepare the way of the Lord by Benjamin Harlann.
Pastoral Care will begin collecting White Gifts today. Collection will continue until December 18. Please note we require items for shut ins - gifts that can be enjoyed and used every day.
Sunshine Lunch, Monday, December 12 at noon. Tickets $10.
Lunch at the Legislature: 16 December at 12:30 p.m
Our Community Carol-Sing takes place on Sunday, December 18 at 2:00 p.m. here at SPPC. It is open to everybody, so bring your friends and neighbours. Coffee will be served.
This year we will once more be making a special Christmas donation to support the Cedar Tree Ministries, our First Nations’ ministry here on Vancouver Island. If you would like to donate, please mark a special donation for Cedar Tree Ministries on your envelope.
The Mustard Seed has sent SPPC a letter of thanks for the generous donations collected for Cozy Toes.
God be with you all!
