Dear Valued Volunteers & Staff,
Connecting Streams is concerned for the safety of staff, volunteer leaders, group members and participants across Canada. We do not want you or your family to contract the virus; we want to be a part of mitigating the spread; and, we want to be messengers of hope.
As of Friday, government, industry, entertainment, religious and education institutions across Canada are taking slightly different stances across provinces but are becoming more direct and unified with many cancellations and postponements.
Starting today, Monday March 16, Connecting Streams ministry groups, prayer groups, leader training and city events across Canada will be suspended until April 6, 2020. At that time we will have a better sense on how to navigate this crisis. The date of April 6 mirrors the date of several education & government systems in many jurisdictions.
Much will unfold over the next three weeks that will inform our decisions going forward. Stay tuned.
Let us remember that “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” and “The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress”.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
May God bless you and keep you healthy!
Edmonton City Lead
