Second Sunday in Lent

10:30 am 
In-Person or Online? Here's all the info you need.
In-Person in Our Sanctuary
75 Geddes St, Elora
(corner of Church & Geddes)
We strongly recommend that people wear masks when we're together in our building. Mask wearing is a simple and effective way to care for each other. Especially the most-vulnerable among us. Some will also choose to keep a physical distance from others. We leave it to each person to make the best decisions for themselves and their families.
Online from Your Home

We're broadcasting our worship services live through YouTube. You can join on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. You  don't need to have an account, or even to sign in.

Join the Worship Broadcast
This takes you to our YouTube channel. You can see current, upcoming, and past livestreams (worship broadcasts). You can also see videos of previous worship services.
If the broadcast interrupts part-way through, we suggest waiting a few minutes. Then try joining the worship again the way you normally do. 
Lent Series
Jesus has gathered his closest followers for a last meal together. He is getting them ready for what lies ahead: his betrayal and arrest, trial and condemnation, suffering and death, resurrection and ascension. And Jesus is preparing them--and us!--to share in his continuing work.

The focus Scripture this week is John 15.26-16.7.

As you come into our worship time, you might take a few moments to consider questions like these.
What am I bringing to celebrate?
What am I bringing to grieve?
What am I bringing to confess?
What hopes am I bringing?
Whatever we're bringing, we offer ourselves to God. And God welcomes us!
