Last Sunday's Service - "The Public Square"

SUNDAY MORNING

Welcome to Saanich Peninsula Presbyterian Church.

Our worship takes place at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday morning both in-person and online. 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.

The 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, May 22, 2022

It can be dangerous to wish for a turn in the weather. There I was, last week, wishing for sunshine, and we got it... accompanied by gale-force winds! Almost made us yearn for the cold, grey, rainy days that preceded it. I hope everyone's trees survived (along with your rooves and gardens). When change is unpredictable and perhaps dangerous, we tend to like to stick to what we know and are familiar with. But storms can be an adventure; besides, eventually, the weather will be nice. When Jesus calls us to new things we may be in for storms and therefore may be tempted to pull back, but it's the wrong response. With him, we know there will (eventually) be smooth sailing ahead, and even when we go through storms, he's riding them out with us. We never need to fear the changing world around us. We just need to listen to Jesus guide us through!

Worship this Sunday begins at 10:00 a.m. and if you are unable to attend you can join in on our webstream via the SPPC YouTube Livestream button above. This week we are going to leave behind Paul's journeys in the Book of Acts and turn to one of his letters, specifically, the Epistle to the Philippians. Our readings will be:

They will be read for us by Linda Cliff. Our anthem is How deep the Father’s love for us by Stuart Townsend

Upcoming:

  • Bible Study continues this Wednesday, May 25; however, this week we will only be meeting in the evening at 7:00 p.m. We will be discussing the discipline of guidance.

  • Saturday, June 4 at 3:00 p.m., we are hosting a Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Tea Party. Please bring British snacks to share with the community (suggestions may be found on the notice board in the Narthex).

The Lord bless you and keep you!!
