So Much Going on at Bayview Glen Church!

Dear friends,

I've heard it said that crisis either brings out the best in people or the worst in people. In our case, it seems that COVID-19 has brought out the best in Bayview Glen Church. I've watched folks care for one another, support one another, pray for one another, and love one another in new and wonderful ways. What a joy it is to be a part of this community during such challenging times.

As we continue to navigate the impact of COVID-19, we invite you to connect with us in the following ways:

Live Streaming on Sundays
We will continue to stream our worship service each Sunday at 10am and 12pm. Hop on the front page of Bayview Glen's website every Sunday and click "Live stream". I'll see you there!

Facebook Neighborhoods
We have divided the GTA up into 9 digital neighborhoods using closed Facebook groups: Durham, Markham, East Toronto, South Toronto, North Toronto, Peel/Etobicoke, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, and York Region North. These groups are made up of people who call Bayview Glen Church home and live in the area. You can use this space to share needs and prayer requests as well as to let people know that you can help!

If you are arranging for pickups/deliveries, please do not share your personal information in the general discussion. Use direct messenger. Please order and pay for all items ahead of time online to minimize the contact for your helper.

Please also post prayer requests, answers to prayers, and praises. Take time to review these posts, pray, and encourage each other. Don’t wait for someone else to respond to a need; jump in and take the opportunity to “do good!”

Social Media
Connect with us on Facebook and Instagram for far more than just pictures and promotions. We'll pray together, remind each other of God's promises, and keep moving the mission of God forward in the GTA.

Life Groups
Yes, Life Groups are meeting and there is room for you! Find a group near you at the link below.

Care
We continue to provide pastoral care appointments, financial assistance, and professional counseling in a digital space. If you are in need of additional support, please contact the church office at [email protected]

Giving
As we continue to navigate the financial implications related to the COVID-19 pandemic, I would like to encourage you in a couple of ways. First, if you have lost income as a result of COVID-19 and are in need of financial support during this time, please reach out and let us know. We are trying to help as many people as we can as quickly as possible. If you are working, I would invite you to consider increasing your regular giving. Our commitment to you is that we diligently steward each and every gift in order to move the Kingdom of God forward, care for our congregation, and impact our community. Your sacrificial giving has allowed us to offer online worship services, launch Alpha online (50 guests attended our launch this week!), offer in-home discipleship curriculum for children and youth, offer counseling in a digital space, care for our community, and so much more. Thank you for your generosity as we work together so that everyone, everywhere can experience God's love and His created purpose through Jesus.

God's peace to you.

Lucas
