News and Updates
Home Church Check-In!
We are resuming in-person prayer meetings!
Just a reminder – the church space will be open every Wednesday morning at 9am for our regular prayer meetings!
If you still wish to stay online for prayer, that’s great too – we will be streaming it over video chat as we have been the last few months!
See you there – either in person or online!
Outdoor Service POSTPONED to August 23rd
We’re Hosting an Outdoor Service!
PLEASE READ ALL INFO BELOW – Social Distance Restrictions are in effect! IF YOU DO NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE joining us in person at this time, we will be live streaming the service through our normal channels so you can still join us from home!
We are going to be hosting an outdoor service at Parkland Pentecostal Church (16 Hemlo Drive, next to the High School) June 28th from 11am to Noon! In case the weather does not cooperate that day, we will announce a different date during the week.
We have all heard the news that churches are allowed to reopen. And that is great news! But it is not as easy as simply going back to normal. We as a church have to follow a lot of new rules, and several restrictions. So while we figure out all of that – we are going to host an outdoor service! You don’t need a radio or anything of the like, we’ll be projecting the sound using our own equipment. There are some restrictions in place though – read below for information.
This service is open to both vehicles and walk-ups. If you are walking up, we will have a limited amount of chairs available. If you have a vehicle you’re able to use, we ask that you please come with it – it makes it easier to social distance!
We will be strictly observing a 6 foot minimum social distance between households. For vehicles, this means that you are welcome to remain in your vehicle, or place a few lawn chairs right in front to catch the service – but please stay with your vehicle unless you are using the bathroom. Vehicles will be spaced in designated spots to maintain distance.
We will not be projecting lyrics or handing out lyric sheets for the service – you can download a set of lyrics here that you can print or read from your mobile device. http://parklandchurch.ca/

COVID-19 and Reopening News Update
Hey folks, an update from Pastor Jon.
We all received recent news from Premier Doug Ford that churches were allowed, as of today, to reopen at 30% capacity, respecting social distancing rules.
This is certainly great news – but we need to make sure that we practice wisdom and patience, and we show ourselves as an example of how to do things right!
We are working in the background as a church to make sure that we have a workable plan that fulfills all insurance and governmental requirements prior to reopening. There are a lot of i’s to cross and t’s to dot, so please have patience with us! We will keep you updated as more steps are being taken.
In the meantime, let’s continue to do what Jesus asks us to do – to be sources of light, wisdom, and hope in our community through showing care and compassion to our friends and neighbours. Because as much as we need to be able to see our church family again in person, the world also desperately needs hope, kindness, and love. And we are in a prime position to provide just that.
Because remember, we never closed the church – we just spread it out!
