Advent/Christmas season

Greetings to all. We have know entered the Advent season of the church, a time of preparation for the celebration of the coming of the Christ Child, which we celebrate on December 25. The world is an interesting place these days with the ongoing pandemic that surrounds and affects our lives in so many ways. We continue to be able to worship together, some in the same building but many at their homes. And we are thankful that we have this opportunity, this ability to worship together.

During the Advent time we will be taking the time to prepare, to remember and to give thanks. This year we are not going to hold a in house Christmas Eve service. It was decided by the Session of Forbes Church that with the many restrictions and uncertainty going forward that we would continue our weekly Sunday morning worship but not to have our Christmas Eve service. We are planning though to make it available through a video so that we are able to worship together yet apart.

So as we move forward through the month of December let us never for forget the gift of Christmas as found in Jesus Christ.

May everyone have a blessed Christmas this year.

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.

Update for C)VID-19 and Worship

Greetings to all. Although there is not much information on our website we would like to update you on what is happening at Forbes. We are reopening the building for public worship on Sunday, July 5, 2020 at 10:30 am. We will be following the various guidelines and protocols as laid out by the Alberta Health and the Chief Medical office as we gather. We will working to make the worship time as safe place where we will practice social distancing, hand sanitizing while at the same time coming together to Worship God. It will be a different time but still can and should be a wonderful time of fellowship and praise as we gather together in the building for the first time in over 3 months. Thanks be to God for our ability to reopen the building and thank you to everyone who has prayed for and continues to pray for the Church of Jesus Christ worldwide.
