1. LockdownHello,  As you know our province has entered into a period of lockdown. Arlington Wood’s Sunday Services will be livestreamed every Sunday during this time.   Gatherings are limited to 10 people, including funerals, weddings and other worship services.  We are following the guidelines given by our province and city.  We do want to ensure the safety of members of our congregation as well as those in our surrounding community.

I know this can be challenging during this time of year.  Please reach out for help if you need someone to talk with.  Together we will succeed.

Continue to place your trust in the Lord.  I have had a few people from our congregation remind me of the following truth and promise.  Take it to heart today.

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”  Isaiah 3:5,6

God Bless, Pastor Mike and staff at Arlington Woods Church.
