Updated Friday March 13 at 1:00pm

As concerns increase this week surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), Harbour is committed to doing whatever we can to provide a safe environment for you and your family.

In light of the recommendations by Ontario’s chief medical officer of health for the immediate suspension of all large events and public gatherings of over 250 people due to COVID-19. Harbour is making the following decisions and recommendations:

  1. Harbour will be closed on Sunday March 15th
    • Canceling a service is a very difficult decision for us, but we have been guided by two principles: (1) honoring our governing officials, who have urged extreme caution, and (2) loving our neighbors, many of whom, like the elderly or those with prior medical conditions, are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19.
    • We will continue to assess the situation throughout this week along with evaluating options for live streaming our services. We will communicate a decision regarding our March 22 worship service at the end of next week.  
    • For those of you wondering about giving options, you are able to give your offering online at TITHE.LY
  • Harbour groups will continue to meet at the discretion of each group.
  • As of today, the Harbour office will remain open next week for our regular business hours.
  • We ask that you continue praying for all of those who are at risk, our medical professionals, and those in decision-making positions.

Updated Wednesday March 11 at 9:30am

We wanted you to be aware of the preparations we are making to address concerns about Coronavirus (COVID-19). For this Sunday, we will do the following:

  • We have asked all of our greeters to hold exterior doors open instead of shaking hands with people as they enter our building.
  • We will greet one another during our welcome time with a smile and possibly an elbow bump.
  • There will be signs in the bathrooms reminding people to wash their hands and hand sanitizer remains available in the Atrium.
  • For our offering the host team will not pass the bowls but instead hold them out so that you can place your envelope or card inside. We recommend that you give your tithe and offering online at TITHE.LY
  • For Communion our servers will not pass the elements but instead hold the tray out and you can take a pre-prepared singular piece of bread and the juice. 
  • We are providing individual creamers, milks and sugar packages as part of our coffee service.
  • For those of you with children checking in at Power-up and Spark one volunteer will use the tablet for you and do all check-ins.
  • We have provided wipes to clean the debit machine after each use.
  • We are recommending that those over 60 and anyone with health concerns not attend in person.
  • If you find yourself feeling sick, we encourage you to listen online at a later date.

We want to be wise and we want you to feel safe.

Isaiah 41.10 reads “Fear Not, for I am with you”.

Please join me in praying for those who have been impacted by this illness and as God opens doors may we boldly share the hope and confidence we have through the gospel of Jesus Christ
