Sunday Morning On-Line Worship Services

at St. Andrew’s, Whitby

Sunday, April 11th, 10:00 am:    We have now entered the season of Easter which breaks the Lenten fast. It includes the 40 days that Jesus made himself known to his disciples following his resurrection (Acts 1:3).

Our scripture reading for this Sunday is taken from the gospel according to John chapter 20, verses 19-31.

In the evening of Easter, Jesus joins the disciples, gathered behind locked doors. He shows them that he is the one who was crucified, but Thomas is absent. The next Sunday, the community gathers again. Upon seeing, Thomas makes the most complete affirmation of faith of anyone in the gospel.

The sermon will explore the dynamic tension between realism and faith.

Streaming of this coming Sunday morning’s on-line service (April 11th) may be accessed at 10:00 am using the following link.   Invite your friends and family to join as well.

Donations may be dropped off at the north door (back door) of the church between Monday and Friday, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. The church office phone number is 905 668-4022.
