Hi Folks!


We are officially in the Fall Season and have survived the hurricane/tropical storm Teddy. God is so good to us here in Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada.


This Sunday we will be re-introducing a fellowship time after church. Tables will be marked to which ones you may sit at and we recommend that those who were sitting together in church, sit together at the same table during the fellowship time. Mask will need to be worn when leaving your church seat but, may be taken off when you are seated at your table in the fellowship room. Snacks, milk and sugar will be available on each table, but tea and coffee will be served to you. If you wish to bring your own coffee/teacup you may, but you must take it back home with you. To keep traffic at a minimum in the fellowship room, leave your cup, napkins, etc.  on the table when leaving the fellowship time.


We started Bible Study last Thursday evening. We are studying Revelation and have looked at Christ’s message to the first three churches.


Choir practice has begun again. Congregational singing is not happening as of now. We are looking to see if there is a possibility for singing to resume with physical distancing.


Bulletins for this Sunday’s Worship Service will be available for pick up on the table in front of the Sound Booth where Robert is Situated.



Rabbi went to the barber shop. After his hair cut, he got ready to pay the barber and the barber said, "No Rabbi, I don't charge the clergy for haircuts." So the next morning the barber found a loaf of Jewish rye bread outside of his door step.


      A couple of days past and a Catholic priest came in to get his hair cut. He got ready to pay and the barber said, "No Father, I don't charge the clergy for hair cuts." So the next morning he found a bottle of wine outside his front door step.


      A couple of days later the Baptist preacher came in to get his hair cut and when he got ready to pay the barber said, "No Reverend, I don't charge the clergy for their hair cuts." So the next morning, the barber found 15 Baptist preachers on his doorstep, ready to get their hair cut!
