Prayer during COVID-19 pandemic

We are nearing a year since the pandemic changes have influenced our lives.  Some us may be feeling exausted, some hopeful because of the vaccine, some resigned to the now normal.  However we are feeling God knows, loves and walks with us.  Whatever form your prayers take from many words to no words, God hears. 

Ask

‘I take a little time now to “pray very simply,” laying my requests before You once again, telling You how I’m feeling, and remembering as I do that You are not scowling but smiling with an expression of tender affection’

Here is a website that offers various prayers in this pandemic time from individual prayers to family prayers:

COFFEE TIME at Bethany Manor

Our seniors, whether they live at Bethany Manor or in their own homes or in other seniors’ facilities, are the foundation of our church. Their wisdom and insight and courage have sustained Mount Royal Mennonite Church for decades. We seek to thank and to honour our elders through visits and sharing the ‘cup and bread’ of coffee and treats.

Be encouraged: They still bear fruit in old age; they are ever full of sap and green, (Psalm 92:14)

Eternity Sunday

Eternity Sunday; the last Sunday of our Christian Church Calendar; the Sunday before Advent, also sometimes known as Christ the King Sunday.

On Eternity Sunday each year we participate in a special service remembering our loved ones who have passed away.  With combined emotions of grief and love, participants take a taper, light it from the large "Christ Candle" and place it in the large sand filled container.  With this special ritual, we support each other, in death and life.
