Welcome to Living Hope CRC

From Pastor Mark...

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”
I Peter 1:3

Welcome back to all of you who are able to be in church and all those who continue to worship with us online! We had a good start to our re-opening and we hope that this will continue. Being together as a community of faith is essential. Whether in the church building or in our homes, we gather in the name of Jesus and in the sure and certain hope of our salvation in him.

We have concluded our study of Matthew 8 and the series entitled “Following Jesus”. Today we will return to the Old Testament and look at the life and times of Israel’s first king, Saul. This was a time of transition for the covenant community and their world still speaks into our world today. Our unity with them is always centered on our unity in the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the hope we have in him.

Our weekly sermon videos will now be recorded during a Livestream broadcast at 10 am on Sunday’s. You may tune in and watch the service live at that time. After the broadcast the service recording will continue to be available on the website and YouTube. Livestreaming does not mean the congregation is invited back into face to face worship in the building. This will happen soon and an ad hoc committee is meeting to work out the details for a safe return to public worship. We ask for your patience as we move into this next phase at Living Hope.


As you know the province of Ontario is slowly re-opening as the Covid-19 pandemic becomes less severe. At this stage churches have been given permission to open at a 30% capacity. The Ministry Board and Council of Living Hope have reviewed the rules concerning re-opening and will continue to monitor the situation as it develops. At this time, due to the high numbers of infection that we have experienced within our congregation and the restrictive measures that would need to be in place to re-open in a safe and responsible way, we believe that we are not yet in a


“The deacons are to represent and administer the mercy of Christ to the needy.” To help fulfill this mandate the Deacons will hold a “Drive and Drop” food drive from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 17. The Deacons challenge every household to purchase items totaling 20% of your weekly grocery bill, place them in the trunk of your car, and then on June 17 drive to the east entrance of the church, pop your trunk, let the Deacons take the donated items out in a safe manner and you can be on your way. Let’s collectively bless our
