To Parents at Grace Chinese Gospel Church,
On behalf of all the leadership in the English Congregation and the Youth Fellowship, greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
We hope and pray that you and your families are doing well at this time. We know that during this time of lockdown and social distancing, there have been lots of changes and it’s been difficult for many families. We are praying for you all.
My name is Shermeen Law and I am the deacon for Youth as well as for Worship for the English Congregation.
This letter is to give an overview of our congregation as your child transitions to the English Congregation.
English Worship Service
English worship service is held online. Our service is found on gracegospel.ca, under “Latest Sermons”. There you will find 2 links:
- Sunday Worship Playlist
- Sunday Worship Stream
Alternatively, you may copy and paste this link:
You can start the Sunday Worship Playlist at 11:00am, this will provide a list for a few worship songs. The sermon will start automatically at 11:30am. We suggest that you watch the sermons with your child, in case they have questions.
We will formally welcome the new Grade 7’s on Sunday, September 6th, 2020.
Youth Fellowship (Genesis)
Our youth fellowship is called Genesis. It is available to all youths from Grades 7 to 12. It runs every Friday night at 7:30pm. During this time, the youth fellowship is still meeting virtually in small-group cells. Grades 7 & 8 will be split into two mixed-grade cells. Meetings are usually held on Google Meets or Discord.
In order for us to prepare a space for your child, we ask that you send us an email to email@example.com with the following information:
- Name of your child
- Names of both parents
- Grade (if they will not be Grade 7 in the Fall) & School
- Email for your child that can be used for communication purposes as well as setting up virtual meetings
- Any other information that may be helpful for us to know
If your child does not have an email, we suggest that you make one for them. This will make it easier for us to communicate with them regarding additional meetings or any other information regarding Genesis.
Please provide us with these details by August 28, 2020.
Genesis will formally welcome the new Grade 7’s on September 4th, 2020. Details will be provided closer to that date.
Youth Sunday School
We also have a virtual weekly Youth Sunday School start September 6, 2020. This will be taught by Samuel Chan (firstname.lastname@example.org) over Google Meets. Details will be provided in a Genesis email by the end of August.
We are very excited to meet your children and to partner with them as they continue their spiritual walk from childhood to middle school and high school.
If you have any questions, please email me at email@example.com, or you can ask your congregation pastors.
