Dear friends,

Over the past few months we have faced unprecedented challenges in our society and for our families. The pandemic has meant that we have had to put some things on hold as well as learn new ways of doing life. We have had to make changes in the way we live, work and learn.

For us at Collingwood Baptist the pandemic has forced us to change the way we worship, find community and serve as a church. Currently we are livestreaming our Sunday worship services on Zoom. Our Bible Studies, Sunday School and Youth ministries also meet on Zoom.

We have also had to cancel some of our favorite programs. We regret to inform you that owing to the ongoing concerns over the Corona Virus, we will not be offering our Summer Day Camp programs this August. This has been a difficult decision for us to make, but we feel it is necessary. We do not feel we are able to ensure the safety of our campers and your family members given the ongoing presence of the virus in our population.

It has been a great blessing for us to open our doors each summer to your child and other children in our community. I personally have enjoyed seeing our Summer Day Campers having fun together and learning about God. And I will miss that this summer. We hope and pray that we will be able to offer our Summer Day Camps next year.

We are not only a church IN our community, but also FOR our community – including the families and individuals within it. If you are facing challenges that are too overwhelming for you, we are here to help in whatever way we can. Please feel free to contact me at pastor@collingwoodbaptist.org. We are available to listen, encourage and pray for you.

May you stay safe and find peace!

Sincerely, Pastor Rick Powell
