TCBC Contingency Plan for COVID-19 Precautions (effective March 16, 2020)

5. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation, Ontario Government announces mandatory closure of all non-essential services, church office is closed from March 24 (Tuesday) 6:00pm until further notice. Should any brothers/sisters have any prayer requests or need any support, they are most welcome to contact pastors or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

7. Please check frequently the TCBC website (tcbc.on.ca) for new updates.
8. Please continue to adhere closely to personal and public hygiene practices, and requirements for self-quarantine.
While we are making these changes and taking precautionary measures, we are not shutting down our mission or compromising our purpose and vision. We are simply using different ways to express ourselves as the church.
As we remain firmly grounded in the truth and fix our eyes on Jesus, we put our trust in God for His protection and provisions. We pray for God’s provision and guidance during this situation. We pray for the health and safety of our church, our city, our neighbours, and our world. And we continue to pray for Spirit led courage and creativity as we ask God to use us to serve and love people well.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
– Isaiah 41:10
