Starting today, we are offering our church announcements by email. Don’t worry, your paper announcements will still be in your bulletin at church and if you’d prefer not to receive this weekly email, you’re free to opt out at any time. We’re providing announcements by email because people have asked for them and because it will help keep people up-to-date even if they are away on a particular Sunday or misplace their paper announcement sheet. If you didn’t receive the announcements by email this morning, it’s because we don’t have your email address. If you’d like to receive them, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the coming weeks, we’ll provide an “email only” option for people who want to help preserve the environment and not receive paper announcements.

Follow us on Facebook
Our Digital Ministry Team has revamped our church Facebook strategy. If you haven’t liked our page yet, please follow us at “Grace Baptist Church of Richmond Hill” (www.facebook.com/gracebcrh).
My articles will appear there every Wednesday and sermon audio and handouts on Sundays. Then throughout the week, you’ll see event updates and gospel-centred content that you can share with others. Our hope is that this will enable you to redeem the time you spend on social media and help you to share with others posts that you find helpful.

Today is Fellowship National Day of Prayer. Please refer to the bulletin insert and join with thousands of other Fellowship Baptists from across Canada on this special Day of Prayer. We encourage you to use this helpful tool during this week to pray for your pastor, missionaries and the Fellowship.
