Announcements March 13


13 March 2022

Welcome!  We extend a warm welcome to our guests, and invite you to sign the guest book at the back of the sanctuary.  Unfortunately, however, we are not yet able to resume our after-service fellowship time in the Church Hall.

Online Service – Today is the last Sunday that we will be recording an abbreviated version of the service, and uploading it to YouTube.  In view of the general easing of pandemic precautions, as well as the small number of people viewing these recorded services, the Session has decided that we will not continue doing this after the 15th of March — unless, of course, new restrictions are put into place sometime in the future.  The recorded service can be accessed from this website.

This Week in First Church:

– Tuesday, 7:00 p.m. – Bible study, by Zoom

Coming Up:

– Sunday, 20 March – Deadline for submissions for the March Newsletter

– Sunday, 3 April – Communion Sunday

Ukraine – PWS&D is accepting donations toward the effort to provide assistance to refugees fleeing the Russian invasion of Ukraine.  The most urgent needs are for food, water, and shelter.  PWS&D provides assistance through its partners, the ACT Alliance (ACT stands for “Action by Churches Together”) and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.  Donations can be made through our congregation; just mark your cheque or envelope “PWS&D – Ukraine”.  If you would like your donation to reach PWS&D faster, you can donate online, using your credit card.  Go to, click on “Ukraine Crisis Appeal”, click on the “Donate Now” button, and follow the prompts.
