NEWS FROM VCEFC CRITICAL RESPONSE TEAM: Although the BC Government’s mandate for social distancing for covid-19 continues to loosen, worship service will continue to be online through until August. We will be emailing out a survey in the next couple of weeks as part of our Critical Response Team’s process of devising a plan to safely transition some of ministries back to church. We are however allowing official fellowships and small groups to gather in groups up to six people at outdoors venues and groups of threes in homes while still taking safety precautions such as not sharing food, physical distancing, face masks and frequent hand washing.Please continue to check the CRT page on our website for guidelines and updates on how our various ministries will be moving forward.

Prayer Request: Cathy Wang’s 101 year old mother in HK had gone to be with the Lord. She had been struggling with declining health since February, aggravated by the lockdown of her nursing home due to COVID19.
Please pray for Cathy’s family in HK. That those who are not yet believers will see God glorified through the faith and love of my mother and those of us who are believers. May they get to know the hope we have through Christ’s victory over death.
