Worship Start Time: 10:30am
Theme: Journey to Jerusalem - Week Three
Come to Scarboro as we worship together every Sunday. We will have the coffee on at 10, so come early and catch up with your community.
This Easter season, we are logging distance walked, steps counted, minutes of physical activity - and also spiritual activity (prayer, scripture verses, meditation), and participation in & service to our church community. Find the tear off slip on the back of the ScarboroNews to log your total 'kilometers' as we strive to cover the distance from Calgary to Jerusalem between now and Pentecost.
This week, we aspire to reach Hawkes Bay, Newfoundland (the official mileage will be tallied and posted online on Monday). Whether we make our goal or not, we will keep on moving with a new goal for May 19.
Are you attending (or helping out with) Friday's Community Soup Night? Are you participating in the Fruits of the Spirit workshops on Saturday? Be sure to include them on your tally sheet!
Each Sunday we will pause to pray for the cities, towns, and countries that we pass through:
As we travel across Ontario and Eastern Canada this week, we pray for advocates working for children's health & education, our environment, meaningful reconciliation with First Nations, and fair, accountable representation for Canadians across the country. We also pray for the community of Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (also known as KI or Big Trout Lake) in the wake of a fire that killed five people, including four young children.
After worship, head down to the Marilyn Perkins - Memorial Hall for a cup of tea or coffee and good conversation. See you there!
