Full opened for Worship

Greetings to everyone. Just to make everyone aware Forbes Presbyterian Church is now fully open with no restrictions as approved by Alberta Health services and the government of Alberta. So we would like to invite everyone back to worship on Sunday morning with no capacity limitations. We still do ask that you sanitize your hands when entering and respect others. By that we mean that there still maybe individuals who wish to wear a mask and social distance and that is okay. We also will not be starting up our coffee time after worship until September.

In September we are hoping to have more things up and running, such as the Sunday school, the choir and Bible study groups. So stayed tuned.

Re-Opening of the Worship Time

Greetings to everyone. Just to let you know with the changes in the restrictions from Alberta Health Services and the Government of Alberta we have moved from 15 people at Worship to 15% which is around 30 people. So the Sessions as agreed to have in-person Worship at Forbes Church starting May 30. We would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we meander our way through the rules.

If things hold as the government has planned then we will be able to open up even more space, so stay tuned for future announcements.

Suspension of In-Person Worship

Notice:

Just letting everyone know that we have made the decision to suspend in-person worship services at Forbes Church for the following Sundays: May 9, 16, and 23 due to the new restrictions put out by the Provincial government. We will revisit and let people know if it is extended beyond those dates after the 23rd of May. Thank you for your understanding. We will continue to pray for our community and the world through this difficult time.

Post Easter

Greetings to one and all. Well we are able to have in the building worship this year for Easter and it was wonderful. Still limited to 15% but it was a wonderful day of celebration for the Resurrection. We are now moving through Eastertide, heading to Pentecost itself and we give thanks every day for the opportunity we have to worship together, maybe not in the same place but together with material that we are able to share with one another.

We continue to pray for everyone’s safety and live in the hope of the resurrection which also allows us to live in the hope of the passing of the pandemic and the ability to fellowship together in person. So we still covet your prayers for the church and for each other.

Thanks be to God.

Worship in the Building

Greetings to one and all. Sorry for the delay on this but sometimes life just gets in the way. I would like to let people know that we have start Worship in the building at Forbes on Sunday mornings. We are following all the protocols as laid out by Alberta Health services. We welcome anyone who wishes to worship in person with us. At the same time we realize that not everyone is comfortable coming to in person services and we understand that and it’s okay.
