Join us for traditional and contemporary worship: for dramatic dialogues or inspiring preaching on issues of the day in light of the Gospel of Christ. Come and enjoy the sermons of our Fall season of our new minister, Rev. Rienk Vlietstra. Listen to the wonderful Casavant pipe organ played by our new Organist/Choir Director Glen Thompson and listen to the Sydenham Street Choir. Connect with timeless church music or some jazz or African-American spirituals. Find a moment of peace in our church community.
Exploring Faith Questions – THIS SUNDAY, beginning at 12noon, in the Conference Room, this group will meet for discussion this time with a focus on “evil”—what is evil, how do we know and experience it, and what does it mean for us as people of faith. Norm Esdon, Mark Fleming and Rienk Vlietstra will facilitate discussion. These conversations have been enriched by contributions of short texts, poetry and prose by others, and you are invited to bring relevant material to share with our group. At this meeting, we will also revisit subsequent Syd meeting dates and topics. All are welcome.
