PREVIOUS UPDATES


  

 

Hi Church family,

On December 13th, our provincial government introduced a number of additional restrictions to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

We want you to know that we are FOR OUR CITY AND MEDICAL PERSONNEL and their battle to control and defeat this pandemic, by strongly encouraging you to worship with us online. However, we are also FOR THOSE OF YOU IN OUR CITY WHO ARE BATTLING A DIFFERENT KIND OF PANDEMIC (one of loneliness, fear, anxiety and hopelessness) by keeping our doors open and continuing to provide our in-person worship services. Pastor Henry gave us a very important update that weekend on how we are responding as a church to some of the COVID realities that we are facing and giving our rationale for the decisions we have and are making.

Therefore, if you are doing well emotionally and spiritually, we strongly encourage you to join over 85% of our church who have been worshiping with us online, especially for the next 3-4 weeks (as COVID cases are spiking) on Youtube or our website: Saturdays at 6:30pm, or Sundays at 9:00am, 11:00am, 6:00pm.

On the other hand, if our in-person worship services renew and bring healing to your soul and fill you with hope and faith to face another week, you are welcome to join us in person providing you are willing to follow all the protocols our health authorities are calling for. Capacity at all of our campuses is now limited to 15% of fire code occupancy as per AHS restrictions, and so to ensure you have a seat please register here in advance or you will be turned away if you come and we have reached our capacity. To read about all AHS protocols and FAQ’s, click here.

Please keep checking here for updates, because if registrations for our in-person worship services drop significantly, we may cancel some of our services for the next month or so, but be assured as long as we are able, we will provide in-person worship for those struggling emotionally and spiritually and find in-person worship to be lifeline of hope and faith.

Church, we will get through this together. We are here for you. If you would like prayer please click here. If you would like to talk to a pastor, please call us at 403-293-3900, we would love to listen, support and pray with you.

God bless you for your faithful support and for walking through this deep valley of uncertainty with us. As this Christmas season approaches, may we be reminded of a new certainty that comes from Jesus, the promised one, Immanuel: God With Us. We pray you experience God’s presence and His Peace, Joy, Hope and Love this season.

  

Dear church family,

Our entire staff team has absolutely loved getting to gather with you in-person at all of our campuses the past couple of months! We have been so happy to see you and hear what God has been doing in your lives throughout this season.

On November 24th, our provincial government declared a state of emergency due to the Covid-19 pandemic, released new restrictions for places of worship, and we are happy to let you know we have already been following all of these restrictions since we re-opened worship services. This has affirmed us in the approach to re-open we have taken as a church. All of our campuses have registration limited at 1/3rd of the room capacity, hand sanitizer is accessible, masks are available if you forgot yours, and more. Church, we are committed to following the direction and advice of our public health professionals, and have diligently established processes allowing us to remain open safely and also to allow us to have a meaningful worship experience together

Children’s, Grade5&6, and Youth Ministries:
Last week’s announcement also implemented restrictions to limit our contacts with others outside of our family unit. While we do meet that in our worship services, we feel that these additional restrictions from AHS affect our age specific ministries in a unique way. We want to do our best to keep our family units together during this time. As a result, we will be pressing pause on all in-person gatherings for Children’s, Grade5&6 and Youth during this time. Children’s Ministries and Grade 5&6 Ministry will continue to connect with and engage your child through weekly online content. Youth Ministries will move to YouTube online live streaming on Wednesday nights. Check out all of our weekly age-specific content and live streaming options below:

Central Campus Worship Centre Re-Opened!

Our Worship Centre has gone through major renovations and construction as part of our BUILD more room for God projects and we are excited for the opportunity to worship together in this space again. This also means that we have a lot more space for you to join us.

FAQ: Our updated Worship Centre at Central Campus


Our Northwest, Airdrie and Bridgeland Campuses continue to meet weekly and we are still praying for God to lead us as we continue to look for a location for our South Campus to begin meeting together in-person.

Worship with us in-person at one of our Campuses!

This has been a tough season!

Through isolation and physical distancing, it has been tough for many of us to connect with those around us. It can be easy for us to allow COVID to be the biggest interruption this year.

But this Christmas we remember that Jesus came into this world as a Divine Interruption. He broke into our lives to bring Hope, Joy, Peace and Love. So we want to do the same! In our weekend services this December you’ll hear stories of God working in people’s lives and leading them to share gifts of Hope, Joy, Peace and Love this Christmas! We want to invite you to be part of it this Christmas!

  1. Ask God how he is leading you to share Hope, Peace, Joy or Love with someone else.
  2. Step out in faith in the way He is leading you to share Hope, Peace, Joy or Love with someone else. Consider leaving this Christmas note with someone you bless. Consider inviting someone to church. Come in person, physically distanced but together in heart. Watch in your own homes and have a chat after the service
  3. Pray for those people God laid on your heart and believe God will work in their lives!
  4. Grab a video, or snap a photo and reflect on your experience and share it on your social media to encourage others to do the same – tag us @mycschurch and use #christmasatcsc

BUILD Stories

God is moving in our church. He is committed to building His Church, and YOU are a part of it. Watch this to see how God is leading us to slow down, focus on what really matters most - making more space for Him in our lives this season.

Pray for our federal government leaders as they discuss Bill C-6 (conversion therapy ban)

On October 1, 2020, Canada’s Federal Justice Minister re-introduced a previous bill (Bill C-8) to ban conversion therapy under the new assigned number, which is now Bill C-6.

Centre Street Church supports Bill C-6's goal of bringing coercive, harmful conversion therapy practices to an end. Centre Street Church also condemns the pressuring, harassment, alienation or bullying of any person based on their sexual or gender orientation, or any other characteristic.

The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada (of which Centre Street Church is a members) has concerns that the Bill C-6 will seek to expand the definition of conversion therapy to include many restrictions to how we live out our faith as a church and as individuals. We also share the concern that religious instruction, parental guidance and supportive services for individuals wishing to order their sexual lives in accordance with their religious conscience, faith identity and personal convictions will be compromised. 
 
We ask that you join us in prayer for our federal government leaders – that they will honour our religious freedoms and conscience rights. We are always concerned when a government creates legislation preventing consenting adults from making their own decisions about how to manage the challenges they experience in life. This Bill requires a lot of prayer for our government leaders, our faith leaders, and for people in the LGBTQ community.     
 
To learn more about Bill C-6 and our concerns as people of faith in the evangelical community, please click here. You can also read a submission to the Justice Committee from Christian Legal Fellowship here.

If you have any concerns or questions about this Bill, please contact your Member of Parliament.

Friends, many of us may be experiencing that uncertainty continues to be the only constant reality in our lives. As this Christmas season approaches, may we be reminded of a new certainty that comes from Jesus, the promised one, Immanuel: God With Us. We pray you experience God’s presence and His Peace, Joy, Hope and Love this season.

 

  

CSC UPDATE – RE-LAUNCH OF IN-PERSON GATHERINGS 

SEPT 15, 2020

Over the past six months we’ve experienced God’s faithfulness in so many ways and we’ve each grown personally in our resolve to remain connected to others, especially when it’s not been easy or convenient. While we thank God for technology that allows us to gather online together, to worship, and hear God’s Word taught, we are incredibly excited to begin gathering again in-person for worship services. We all know gathering together as the body of Christ is biblical (Heb 10:25) and an important part of our church’s vision and ministry. We believe that we were created to live life in community with God and others and we grow in our faith both personally and collectively when we gather together. 

Each of us have various considerations, experiences, and convictions around this COVID pandemic and we appreciate everyone’s unique perspective. We understand that some of you may not feel comfortable to join us in-person and we encourage you to remain committed to joining us in our online worship services.

Whether you worship with us online or in person, join us in prayer for God’s leading and protection. Also, consider serving with us as we rebuild our weekend ministry teams. Our staff and team leads have been reaching out to all of you who volunteered your time and energy to serve others.  If you have not been contacted, please call/email your ministry leader to let them know you’d be interested in serving again. If you are new to serving with us, please go directly to your campus website, click on the serve web banner, and complete the brief ‘Volunteer Interest Form’.

*** All Campuses, please note:

  • We encourage you to continue to worship as families. Age specific ministries will hopefully resume in-person during weekend gatherings sometime in late October; more information will be shared when it is available.

 

While we are excited to worship together in person, we also need to do our part in keeping one another healthy.

Before attending a weekend service, please got through the COVID-19 Alberta Health Daily Checklist.

If you answer yes to any questions, please worship with us online and fill out the AHS self-assessment here. If you are vulnerable to COVID-19 (over the age of 65, or have a compromised immune system), you are welcome to attend taking precautions or consider joining us online. If you prefer a CD or DVD be mailed to your home, contact 

Space is limited at our in-person worship service so please register in advance to attend. Your registration helps us:

  • Ensure we can maintain proper physical distancing estimated seating capacity
    • All rows of chairs will be distanced by 6 feet
    • Please keep 3 empty seats (or 6 feet separation) between you and the next cohort seated in the row
  • In the event we are contacted by AHS for contact tracing, we will share your contact information with them

 

We want you to know what we are doing to keep you safe!

We are committed to following the direction and advice of our public health professionals. We care deeply about the safety of our staff, volunteers and attendees. We have diligently established plans, protocols, and logistics to not only ensure your safety, but also to allow us to have a meaningful worship experience together:

Buildings & Operations:

  • Frequent cleaning, sanitizing of frequently touched surfaces 
  • Helpful signage to reminding us to follow guidelines
  • All rooms used for gatherings conditioned 
  • Hand sanitizer generously available
  • Limited number of people using washrooms at one time
  • Water fountains/coolers not available at this time
  • Weekend on-site sale of Appleseed will not be available at this time
  • Coffee not available at this time (this includes Café at Central Campus)  
  • To follow social distancing guidelines:
    1. Limiting the total number of attendance
    2. Proper spacing of seating rows
    3. Proper physical distancing between cohorts seated in the same row
  • No physical offering containers will be passed. A collection box will be available at each location for physical donations. Online giving is encouraged. Online Giving

Staff & Volunteers:

  • Are screened with the AHS self-assessment and are trained on:
    • Mask wearing at all times while serving, unless required to communicate on the platform during a service. Anyone on the platform will stay behind plexi-glass.
    • Physical distancing protocols
    • Hand washing & sanitizing

Wearing Masks:

  • We ask that everyone attending our Centre Street Church Worship gatherings wear a mouth and nose covering (mask) for the duration of the Worship Service (Exemptions can be made for individuals who are unable to wear a mask due to medical or other needs).

We want to do everything we can to help limit the spread of the virus and while we want to do our best to physically distance, we know that as we gather indoors it may not be possible to maintain physical distancing all the time.

 

It's undeniable that we are all in a time where there are many restrictions and requirements being asked of us all each individually and also organizationally. These are coming from our various levels of government, who are trying to lead the best way they know how in order to limit the spread of the virus and keep us all safe. Many of us have differing personal opinions, some of you are letting us know you won’t come if we encourage you to wear a mask, and some of you are letting us know you won’t come if we aren’t mandating masks. Over the past 6 months we have all known of someone who has contracted COVID and either recovered or passed away from COVID. This reality has shaped our approach to provincial and municipal health regulations affecting our church.   

  1. We want to do everything we can to help limit the spread of the virus. We have been and will continue to take guidance from health care professionals and follow the provincial guidelines and local bylaws allowing us to continue to gather in a safe way.
  2. We continue to accomplish the mission of Centre Street Church, which is to “introduce people to Jesus and help them become fully devoted followers of Jesus”. We have adjusted ministry plans and have taken advantage of new opportunities this season. Ex. We have had over 120 people participate in our Alpha class hosted online and many of our church families participated in this year’s kids VBS CSCamps from home.
  3. We want to show honour, respect, and love for one another, regardless of differing perspectives concerning COVID and precautions being taken as we begin to gather for in-person worship services and as various groups begin to meet in-person.
  4. We trust and believe in God’s promise for protection and covering in the midst of a lot of unknowns. Even with that, we know the virus is a real thing we face, and we want to use wisdom and respond in a way that communicates our love, support and care for our congregation, our community and our city.

 

  

 

Our leaders and board have been planning and praying about the future and what it may hold for us. We are excited for when we can gather together in-person at our campuses and we see the possibility of this happening sometime this fall. We are confident God has good plans in store for us and we are so thankful for His voice, His grace, His leading and guidance during the past six months.

Back in June we asked you for your input about how you felt about in-person gatherings and that feedback was vital in our approach to hosting our first in-person gatherings in the South Parking lot at Central Campus. Now we are at a place where we are planning and exploring options for possible campus specific gatherings sometime in the fall. With this in mind, we wanted to come to you, our church family, to ask for your input once again.

Please pick the survey for the campus you usually attend - we are thankful for your commitment to give us honest feedback! Survey ends August 29.

Airdrie Campus

Bridgeland Campus

Northwest Campus

South Campus


*Central Campus is already having weekly in person worship service gatherings, hosting all campuses. We are anticipating moving those services indoors this September.

 

  

 

In person Worship Service update:

God is moving in our city, in our community, in our church family, and we are so excited to continue to partner with God in all He is doing. Recently we had our first in-person worship service since March 15, when COVID-19 limited us from meeting in person. We had over 300 people join us to worship God, hear His word and enjoy community. Watch this video to see what the worship service was like.

Our in-person gatherings have been an encouragement to both us as a church and those who have attended. We are seeing people come with smiles on their faces, some who have faced isolation, and even some who do not have the resources to join us for worship online. Gathering together, even while being distanced has provided an opportunity for many people to see new and old friends, connect in community and be uplifted in their walk with God. We are so thankful for the staff, volunteers and teams who have been able to help us to safely host these in-person gatherings.

To learn more or register for an upcoming in person worship gathering, click here.

 

New Calgary Bylaw Requires Face Coverings:

Effective Aug 1st, the City of Calgary requires Calgarians to wear a face covering in indoor public spaces. Faith-based places of worship are included as public spaces, click here to read more in detail about this
bylaw.

The good news is that this bylaw focuses on indoor public places. This means that those attending an in-person gathering only need a mask to sing.

 

Our approach to regulations affecting our church:

It's undeniable that we are all in a time where there are many restrictions and requirements being asked of us all each individually and also organizationally. These are coming from our various levels of government, who are trying to lead the best way they know how in order to limit the spread of the virus and keep us all safe. Many of us have differing personal opinions, some of you are letting us know you won’t come if we encourage you to wear a mask, and some of you are letting us know you won’t come if we aren’t mandating masks. Over the past 4 months we have learned of young and old in our congregation who have contracted COVID and thankfully have recovered and we know of others who have died from COVID, that has shaped our approach and we want to share the approach we are taking:

  1. We want to do everything we can to help limit the spread of the virus. We have been and will continue to take guidance from health care professionals and follow the provincial guidelines and local bylaws allowing us to continue to gather in a safe way.
  2. We continue to accomplish the mission of Centre Street Church which is to “introduce people to Jesus and help them become fully devoted followers of Jesus.” We have adjusted ministry plans
    and have taken advantage of new opportunities this season. Ex. We have had over 120 people participate in our Alpha class hosted online and many of our church families participated in this year’s kids VBS cscamps from home.
  3. We want to show honour, respect, and love for one another, regardless of differing perspectives concerning COVID and precautions being taken as we begin to gather for in-person worship services (outdoors for now) and as various groups begin to meet in-person.
  4. We trust and believe in God’s promise for protection and covering in the midst of a lot of unknowns. Even with that, we know the virus is a real thing we face, and we want to use wisdom and respond in a way that communicates our love, support and care for our congregation, our community and our city.

 

 

WE ARE IMPACTING OUR CITY WITH MEALS

Since the pandemic began, we have been distributing more food to Calgarians than ever before – to people in need, people who are sick and people in crisis. In May, God equipped us to make a greater impact through additional funding from the COVID-19 Community Response Fund. On June 1 we launched a lunch box program and throughout July we launched a frozen meals program so we could provide food to even more people in need.

Recently Steve Griffin, who leads and oversees all our food distribution and outreach, was praying and asking God “what’s next?” during these times. He felt the Lord bring two groups of people to mind: the marginalized and the elderly. That’s when God really started moving. He suddenly became aware of an organization that provides for seniors in our city. That organization was suddenly out of a food provider and was frantically looking for a new partnership that could provide meals. God had this connection in mind and we saw Him work it all out rather quickly. As a result, we have been providing over 500 frozen meals to seniors each and every week throughout July. And that’s just to seniors! To date, we have distributed close to 7000 hampers and meals to many diverse groups of people in need and people in crisis situations.

YOU CAN BE A PART OF IT!

We always want to make a deeper impact than just meals! That’s why we are including notes of encouragement with every meal we hand out. “When I read through the notes of encouragement that people have been dropping off to include with our meal distribution, they bring tears to my eyes,” said Pastor Steve. “They are truly amazing and heart touching!”

We invite you to include writing notes of encouragement to your personal mission or family mission during COVID-19.

 

WAYS TO GROW SPIRITUALLY AND CONNECT IN COMMUNITY

Pray for our Youth Summer Missions Trips
Our Youth ministries was planning a 5-night missions experience right here in our very own city with Youth Unlimited, just like they have in previous years. Although COVID changed many of these plans, we
are excited to have our youth participate in “Project Serve In A Box”. This new experience includes evening activities (including an Amazing Race) for youth and their families, different service opportunities, as well as devotionals and chapel times for the youth to grow in their own relationship with God. It brings the missions experience to their homes and invites them to live on mission together as a family. The team at Youth Unlimited have been incredible to work with and we are excited that our youth are able to see yet another way they can serve the people of our city.

Please join us in praying for the youth in the following ways:

  1. That youth would continually come to know Jesus!
  2. That youth would feel connected despite the challenges that COVID brings.
  3. That Youth Unlimited and the Project Serve Team will continue to expand their reach and help youth all over the city to see how they can impact Calgary.

A NOTE ABOUT FUTURE PLANS

The only thing we know for certain is that we continue to face uncertainty in all areas of our lives. We want you to know that our staff, our leadership team and board are continuing to plan for the future in the ways we can, and we are looking to God for His guidance and direction for both the things we know and the things we do not. We are planning for September and anticipate the beginning of both online and in-person groups, classes, courses for various age groups. We are also planning for indoor services at some or all of our campus locations. We will be certain to keep you updated on all these plans as they become finalized. For ongoing updates to ministries, please check their ministry pages here on our website under the ‘community’ tab.

 

 

 

 

Dear CSC family:

I received great news from my doctor a few days ago. After completing the recommended treatment, I had a CT Scan which indicated there is no evidence of non-Hodgkins lymphoma in my body. PTL!

Over the next 2 years I will need to continue taking a treatment every three months which has been proven to be very effective in preventing the cancer from returning for over 10 years in 75% of those taking this treatment protocol.

We are humbled and so grateful to God for this report, for answering our prayer, and also for your support and prayers. 

Please pray that my body would remain healthy and particularly for God’s protection over the next year as my immune system will still be compromised. 

Thank you again for your love, support, and prayers. We are so blessed to be part of this church.

- Pastor Henry

 

We are moving forward!

It’s been wonderful to meet together on weekends, across thousands of homes in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and around the world! Since the Government of Alberta has eased restrictions on places of worship, we are excited to be able to have an in person worship service gathering.

The weeks and months ahead continue to be a time of uncertainty for all of us, however we do know for certain that we are all a family of God- as we all come together digitally or in person to seek God, to worship Him, to study His word, and to listen to what He may be saying to us.

 

 

There are 3 ways to attend church:

What Alberta's Phase 2 Re-Opening Means for Centre Street Church

Alberta moved to stage 2 of its reopening strategy on June 12, easing restrictions on businesses, gathering sizes and more. When the government originally laid out their phased approach, we concluded that groups larger than 100 would not be able to meet at least until September. Therefore, we were very surprised to hear that effective immediately, the government is not placing any cap on attendance of worship service gatherings. We are excited about the option of meeting again in person, however, there are 6 pages of guidelines that will take time to interpret and prepare for. For example, we need to understand the cleaning requirements of our facilities, what we need to do to keep you all safe and what we need to do to keep our staff and volunteers safe. We also need to connect with our leased facilities and determine where we will hold services at our Central Campus, since we had begun required renovations in our building and worship centre (missed the BUILD update? See more info here). This all means we have not yet made a decision about when we will begin the option of in person weekend worship services at any of our campus locations. We have been working hard and will continue to work hard to make this possible soon.

In all of this, we would like your input. It would very helpful to us if you would take a few moments to fill out a survey HERE on behalf of your household. The survey will be available for you to complete until June 25.

 

As a church and as individuals, we have never faced a global pandemic and navigated through the sudden, unexpected changes we’ve been facing. We know some of you have already emailed us asking if we are meeting in person this weekend, and although our experience will not be like it was before COVID, being together as a family of God is something you need. Others of you are very hesitant about meeting in person and prefer to continue to worship at one of our 4 online worship services, and that is great! Continue to do that and maybe invite your cohort families over to worship together. May we all experience the assurance of His protection and peace at this time, and let us extend His love to those
around us.

We will be giving you more information about our plans every weekend. Please be checking our website here, subscribe for our ‘In the Know’ newsletter here, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, or call us. 403-293-3900.

See you online this weekend:

  • Streamed on youtube and our website every weekend, Saturday’s at 6:30pm, Sunday’s at 9:00am, 11:00am, 6:00pm.
  • You can watch past messages on youtube, our website, or the CSC app.
  • Join a discussion after the sermon each weekend to dig deeper into the message. Text ‘discussion’ to 403.293.3900 to join in
  • Open up the discussion during a service to process what you are hearing, and to get live prayer through the live chat.

 
Our communities are gathering online and we are seeing that God is working in and through us! Click below to find out how each ministry is connecting, having fun, and growing together.

 

Online Community Groups:
We have an amazing opportunity to connect with each other, even if it is a little different than what we've done in the past. In this unique season of life, we're finding creative ways to build relationships with each other (IN), to engage with and learn from God's Word (UP) and to reach out to those God has placed around us (OUT).

We are continuing to connect with one another through our Online Community Groups. Join a community group today!

Join us for Thursday Prayer:
The Bible says that the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective. That means that YOUR prayers are powerful and effective. It is in our heart to provide a space where we can gather together from our homes to pray in unity. Join us for 10-15 minutes in the middle of your week (every Thursday) to pray as a church family. View our Thursday prayer videos online, or on Facebook and, Instagram.

 

Daily Reflections:
Engage with God’s word daily as our pastors lead us in a daily reflection to bring fresh perspective, hope and encouragement. Daily reflections available online or on Facebook and Instagram. 

 

Hope Lends a Hand:
Together, let’s extend a hand of love and care to our neighbours and draw people to the love of God. We have had the incredible opportunity to help hundreds of Calgarians in need predominately through needs of food. We see ‘food as a doorway’ to connect with people in the name of Jesus in ways that truly DO help and make a difference!

From our West Campus building, we have been running a food distribution depot and are distributing food throughout the city. As of June 2020, we have expanded this with boxed lunches and in the near future, we will expand hot meals for Calgarians who need something immediate and prepared.

“Each and every week we are seeing so many different people looking for food and a number who are coming every week because they are ineligible for other helps. One person said, ‘without you I would have nothing. Every time I come all I can feel is a warm sense that I am cared for. Thank you for caring about people that come...you help us feel like we have a friend’.” – Hope Lends a Hand Team

“Compassionate Ministries seeks to honour, celebrate and pray for first responders at the front line during COVID 19. We delivered baskets of gifts and goodies to two fire stations and to District 3 of the Calgary Police Service. All were so full of gratitude and we received a call back from the district commander from District 3 thanking CSC for its kindness and the message the police expressed is that CSC does care so much for its community.” – Hope Lends a Hand Team

“Words cannot express how thankful I am to everyone in Centre Street Church for the food and baby essential hamper you have provided my family, especially to the volunteer who delivered the items to us. You are Godsend. It has been a huge help to us during this tough times due to COVID-19. I've been at ease knowing that I have something to provide my family for a couple of days or weeks.” – Recipient, Hope Lends a Hand 

 

Let’s Encourage and Pray for One Another:
This is a challenging time for all of us. We want you to know that our church staff are available to pray with you and provide support in any way we can. Also, reach out to members of your community group or ministry team and encourage and pray for one another.

    What a unique time in history we are living in today with a worldwide pandemic, tossing life upside down for the past three, almost four months. In the midst of all the chaos and challenge we are certain now more than ever that God is still building His church here locally, nationally and internationally. We are so pleased to hear reports and testimonies form our ministry teams and ministry staff of how our church community has committed to growing in their personal relationship with God, connecting with one another and reaching out to live on mission in these uncertain times.

    First, we want to help clarify a few key questions that you may be wondering about:

    When will Centre Street Church will be resuming in person weekend worship service gatherings?

    Here is what we have been doing to answer this question:

    1. Going to God and seeking His wisdom and guidance.
    2. Staying up to date with all the stage 1 reopening information coming from our Alberta Government.
    3. Being in touch with and learning from churches across Canada here in Calgary. 

    We want to make the best decisions we can for our physical and spiritual health. The following restrictions remain in place in Alberta’s stage 1 COVID19 re-opening:

    1. Limiting restrictions for gatherings
    2. Singing is not permitted
    3. Children’s ministry is not permitted
    4. Worship gatherings are limited to a maximum of 50 people

    Therefore, we will not be resuming in person weekend worship gatherings at any of our campuses yet, and it is unlikely we will do so in stage 2 of reopening.

    We are very much looking forward to when we can gather for worship in person and we will be assessing this possibility at each stage of Alberta’s reopening.

    We are grateful that we can continue to meet as ONE CHURCH in thousands of locations across Calgary, Airdrie, and beyond! We love that families and friends can gather in homes or in backyards to worship together in smaller groups. We love the feedback we are receiving of how meaningful our worship and teaching have been to people not only locally but around the world. We know this season is unique and with it comes even more unique challenges. We want you to know that we are praying for you as you continue to adjust to these new times. Here are some ways you can stay connected with us:

    Weekend worship services:

    • Streamed on youtube and our website every weekend, Saturday’s at 6:30pm, Sunday’s at 9:00am, 11:00am, 6:00pm.
    • You can watch past messages on youtube, our website, or the CSC app.
    • Join a discussion after the sermon each weekend to dig deeper into the message. Text ‘discussion’ to 403.293.3900 to join in
    • Open up the discussion during a service to process what you are hearing, and to get live prayer through the live chat.

     

    Mid-week Opportunities:
    Our communities may not be able to meet in person but we are still able to gather online and we are seeing that God is working in and through us! Click on a graphic to find out how each ministry is connecting, having fun, and growing together.


    Online Community Groups:
    We have an amazing opportunity to connect with each other, even if it is a little different than what we've done in the past. In this unique season of life, we're finding creative ways to build relationships with each other (IN), to engage with and learn from God's Word (UP) and to reach out to those God has placed around us (OUT).

    We are continuing to connect with one another through our Online Community Groups. Join a community group today!

    Join us for Thursday Prayer:
    The Bible says that the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective. That means that YOUR prayers are powerful and effective. It is in our heart to provide a space where we can gather together from our homes to pray in unity. Join us for 10-15 minutes in the middle of your week (every Thursday) to pray as a church family. View our Thursday prayer videos online, or on Facebook and, Instagram.

     

    Daily Reflections:
    Engage with God’s word daily as our pastors lead us in a daily reflection to bring fresh perspective, hope and encouragement. Daily reflections available online or on Facebook and Instagram. 

     

    Hope Lends a Hand:
    Together, let’s extend a hand of love and care to our neighbors and draw people to the love of God. We have had the incredible opportunity to help hundreds of Calgarians in need predominately through needs of food. We see ‘food as a doorway’ to connect with people in the name of Jesus in ways that truly DO help and make a difference!

    From our West Campus building, we have been running a food distribution depot and are distributing food throughout the city. As of June 2020, we have expanded this with boxed lunches and in the near future, we will expand hot meals for Calgarians who need something immediate and prepared.

    Prayer

    We believe in the power of prayer! Together, let's pray in unity for those who are worried or affected by Covid-19. We encourage you to be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit in these times as He leads you into prayer and intercession.

    How Can I Be Praying?

    We must seek God in prayer for His hand of protection on our church, on our families and on our loved ones. We know God hears and responds to our prayer! If we are a praying city praying against the spread of this virus, we do believe we will see a difference. Please be praying:

    • For God’s protection on Calgary, Alberta and Canada, on our frontline healthcare workers and our politicians/public health officers. Pray for wisdom and guidance for all our leaders to make the right decisions to help stop the spread.
    • For God’s wisdom for our leadership at Centre Street Church – that He will direct our steps to understand the situation, and to provide a timely and effective response in protection of our CSC community.
    • For God to reveal our role as a good neighbour in the community. For God to open doors through this crisis for us to continue serving the vulnerable and those seeking help and hope.
    • For our missionaries who are traveling overseas – that God would be protecting them and helping them make prudent decisions for their health and for their communities.
    • For our partner churches who are serving as the hands and feet of Jesus across the globe – that God would direct their steps and reveal His self through the church during this time of crisis.
    • For our vulnerable populations here at CSC – including Maranatha Seniors and our Special Needs Ministry and anybody with a compromised immune system – that God would protect them and help us to serve them amid this evolving situation.

     

    Let’s Encourage and Pray for One Another:
    This is a challenging time for all of us. We want you to know that our church staff are available to pray with you and provide support in any way we can. Also, reach out to members of your community group or ministry team and encourage and pray for one another.

    Thanks for your Continued Support:
    Thank you so much for your faithful giving to the mission and ministry of our church. We would not be able to do what we do in our city, our nation or around the world without your faithful support. Even if you are not at a worship service, there are many ways you can give. You can mail or drop off your tithe and offerings to Central Campus or you can give online.
     
    A Closing Word:
    We are reminded in Psalm 23 that "even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me." As His followers, we are called to trust in
    His protection ("rod") and His provision ("staff"). Our peace and security are not based on having our circumstances free of darkness or difficulty. Instead our confidence is anchored in His love, power and goodness.

    May we all experience the assurance of His protection and peace at this time, and let us extend His love to those around us.

    Hello again Centre Street Church family.

    If I had told you, six months ago, that our world and our life would be turned upside down--like it has--you would have wondered if I was delirious and desperately needing to see a doctor. If I would have described what we are experiencing today no one would have believed it. Many of us are still trying to process how dramatically our lives have changed as a result of this Coronavirus pandemic.

    Not only have our personal lives been impacted, our church life has also been affected in a big way. A little over a month ago, thousands of us worshiped together at one of our five campuses. Since then, out of love and concern for the health of our friends and neighbors and our desire to cooperate with our government in stopping the rapid spread of this virus, we've cancelled our weekend public worship services. Our facility leases in Airdrie, NW, South Campus have been suspended. All our buildings are closed. Midweek groups and other ministries are not meeting in person as they used to. We’ve moved to worshiping only online in our homes. Not much is the same.

    In Acts 2:46, we read that the early church gathered together regularly for public worship and the Apostles' teaching and then scattered out into the community and met together in homes Like the two wings of a plane, we believe both are important aspects of making disciples and we look forward to the day we can once again gather for public worship and scatter to love and care for one another and together accomplish the mission Christ has called us to.

    But make no mistake, even though we cannot meet for public worship for a time, our church is still very much alive. At its core, our church is made up of hundreds of community groups and other small groups and ministry teams-- and many of you have been part of such a community--for years. Through this pandemic, we have learned in a whole new way not only how important it is to be in community with one another but how supportive these relationships can be especially in uncertain times like we are presently experiencing.

    The good news is presently over 70% of our community groups are meeting through an online platform and we are working on even more of our groups meeting this way. Our children and youth staff continue to partner with parents in discipling their children and youth with online groups and video resources.

    If you are a youth, young adult or adult and are not part of a group, please let us know--by going on our website or by calling the church and we'll do all we can to help you be part of a group or better yet, help you start a group or host a group in your community. If you want to access our online resources for children check out our website or call the church as well.

    In my last update on March 18, I informed you that our ability to support our ministries, missionaries and staff depends on your continued giving. The reality is, the COVID-19 pandemic combined with the economic slowdown, and inability to collect tithes and offerings in public gatherings has had a significant negative impact on the finances of our church. Left as is, projections indicated we would end the ministry year (June 2020) with a large deficit.

    Therefore, we developed a new budget based on our new financial reality and took steps to reduce costs wherever possible while still doing our best to advance our mission and ministry as a church. In order to garner more input, we vetted our process and conclusions with our senior team leaders and our Board of Governors, receiving their affirmation to make the following painful changes:

    First, effective immediately, only critical spending will be authorized in both ministry and operational budgets.

    Second, earlier this week we had to lay-off a number of our staff. While the lay-offs are temporary, we are not able to make any promises or guarantees to bring them back on staff, because we won't know whether we will be in a financial position to do so. We are seeking to understand to what extent we will qualify (if at all) to receive funds being made available through the provincial and federal government and will utilize whatever funds we receive to keep as many staff employed as possible.

    The decision to lay-off staff has been very difficult and heartbreaking. These people are part of our church family and we appreciate who they are, we value them as individuals, their dedication, commitment and their ministry to the people of our church. Unfortunately, if finances continue to decline, we will have no choice but to continue laying off more staff. I know this is hard news and how I wish it weren't so--but we have to live within our means.

    We know some of you have been laid off, others of you have experienced a significant down-turn in your business. Still others of you are not sure there will be a job waiting for you when the worst of this pandemic passes. This is a very challenging time for all of us---which makes me so grateful for those of you who continue to give faithfully.

    Steve, our pastor of Compassion Ministry informed us today how he and his team were kept busy for an hour and a half unloading food---that people from our church were dropping off for the needy of our city and how with the help of many of you were distributing or delivering up to a 100 food hampers a week to the needy. God bless you all for your generosity and acts of kindness.

    If you are able to give to the ongoing mission and ministry of our church but haven't yet, my big ask is that you would go to God in prayer and ask Him to give you the grace needed to trust Him in these uncertain times and then step out in faith and give as He leads you to. Since giving in our public worship services isn't an option, please consider mailing in or dropping off your offering at Central Campus during office hours (Monday to Friday--8:30 to 4:30) or go on our website and sign up for one of the many ways you can give online so that we can continue to make disciples, care for the needy and accomplish God's redemptive purposes in our city, nation and world. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.

    You know--history teaches us that pandemics and plagues do not last. The coronavirus will peak and then decline and then fade away. With God's help, we will make it through this difficult time together. Presently this pandemic is a valley we need to walk through but let's not forget that our Good Shepherd is walking with us and we can find comfort in His rod (His protection) and His staff (His provision).

    In 2 Chronicles 7:14, God says, 'If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land". God promises to 'heal our land' of pestilence like COVID-19, if we, His children, will humble ourselves, turn from our sins, seek His face and pray.

    In this time in which we are being asked to stay in our homes, I want to challenge us to not devote most of our time to trivial pursuits but to give priority to reflecting deeply on what this pandemic is teaching us about what really matters in life, to opening the Scriptures and to ask the Lord often, "Lord what are you saying to me and what are you asking me to do about it?"

    For over a month now, I have been specifically praying that our church would come out the other side of this pandemic spiritually stronger and more aligned with God's heart than ever before and that all of us will go to another level in our relationship with the Lord as we humble ourselves, repent of habitual sin and seek His face with all our heart. May it be so, to the glory of God and for the sake of a world that needs the Jesus we know and love.

    In closing, I just want to remind you that as we approach Palm Sunday and Holy Week, we, as a church family, will be having 3 days of prayer and fasting starting this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You will find prayer guides on our website. I also encourage you to participate in the daily devotions that we have on our website.

    Then finally, I remind you that next week we will be having our usual Good Friday services online at 9 and 11---and on EASTER WEEKEND---or more accurately--RESURRECTION WEEKEND--I am so looking forward to sharing God's Word with you--and also with many others in our city and nation who will be joining us online--Saturday evening at 6:30, Sunday morning at 9 and 11 and Sunday evening at 6:00 pm.

    Until then--may God bless you and keep you--may He make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord lift His countenance upon you and give you His precious peace. In the name of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

     

     

     

    Dear Church Family,

    With the Coronavirus Pandemic escalating, we continue to find ourselves in a surreal situation we’ve never experienced before and things are changing daily. Last week, even though we had public worship services, we strongly encouraged you to worship with us online and I’m pleased to report that over 95% of you did. On average we had about 60 people in each of our 7 services with a safe distance between worshipers which far exceeded the Alberta requirements at the time.

    Well things have changed even more dramatically since then. Yesterday, the Premier of our Province declared a public health emergency and called on all gatherings larger than 50 people to be cancelled, effective immediately.

    Therefore, because we want to do what we can to love and care for the health of our friends and neighbors and to cooperate with our government and health professionals in stopping the spread of this evil virus, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, WE HAVE DECIDED TO CANCEL OUR PUBLIC WORSHIP SERVICES AT ALL OF OUR CAMPUSES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

    THE GOOD NEWS IS WE WILL STILL BE ABLE TO WORSHIP ONLINE, Saturday at 6:30pm or Sunday at 9 & 11am and 6pm. Our Sunday 9am service will continue to have a more traditional flavor. This weekend, Pastor Ashwin will be giving a message of hope and encouragement from John 10. So please join us online at cschurch.ca.

    While we hope and pray this pandemic will soon be over and that we can gather for public worship again we are grateful that we can worship and stay connected online as a church. One family expressed how uplifting, reassuring and comforting it was to go online and see familiar faces, hear a sermon and sing songs of praise in their home. They added, “All the external moorings of our life have been yanked the last few days. We’re so glad Centre Street Church wasn’t one of them.”

     

    MIDWEEK GATHERINGS AND GROUPS

    Additionally, to prevent further spread of this virus, all our Midweek classes, Groups and Community Groups of all ages WILL BE SUSPENDED FROM MEETING IN PERSON for at least the next month. During this time, we encourage these groups to continue meeting online. If you are a group leader please contact your campus or community pastor who will introduce you to online options for your group.

     

    WE ARE HERE FOR YOU.

    This is a challenging time for all of us. If you need prayer, encouragement or help in some other way, our pastoral staff will be available at Central Campus during office hours to provide support in any way we can in person or over the phone. All Centre Street buildings will have limited access Monday thru Friday and will be closed over the weekend.

     

    PLEASE STAY IN TOUCH FOR UPDATES

    We want to keep you informed of any changes and updates through e-mail, social media and our website at cschurch.ca and so it is crucial you check in with us regularly.

    If you do not have the means to receive e-mails or to go online please call the church at 403-293-3900 with your questions and give us your contact information so we can stay in touch and be of help.

     

    YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT REALLY MATTERS

    Forgive me for being direct, but without your faithful giving we will not be able to support our ministries, missionaries or staff for very long. We have witnessed God change thousands of lives through our life witness, our serving and giving and we pray that through this challenging time even more lives would be spiritually impacted to the glory of God. So thank you in advance for continuing to believe in and supporting our mission financially.

     

    HOW YOU CAN HELP OTHERS

    Many of you have inquired “how can I help others? Our Compassion Ministries is formulating a plan to help us meet the needs of those needing care during this crisis. If you would like to help others please visit cschurch.ca/hope and look for more information on how you can help. There will also be more information shared in our weekend services.

     

    A FINAL WORD

    In 2 Tim 1:7, the Apostle Paul writes “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

    We serve a good, faithful and all-powerful God who is more than able to accomplish what concerns us today. Therefore, we need not respond to the challenges we face with fear, worry or panic the way most people in our society are. Rather, we can lean into Him in total trust and deal with the upheaval surrounding the coronavirus with a sound mind, and in the mighty power of the Spirit lift up the shield of faith, loving one another with the sacrificial love of Jesus.

    For example, one family from our church sensed God leading them to put a note in the mailbox of all the people on their block with their name & phone number offering to grocery shop for them or help in whatever way they could. Others are dropping off meals for people who are sick or in isolation.

    Church let’s do all we can to not spread this virus. Instead let’s spread the love of Jesus to those in our sphere of influence.

     

    As we spend more time at home and ‘PAUSE’ from face to face gatherings for the next month or so, my prayer is:

    • Instead of spending hours of our day watching Netflix, we will make time to love and connect with our family in a meaningful way.

    • We will reach out to our neighbors and to those in our community group or ministry team by e-mail, text or phone and ask how they are doing and just listen as the process their worries and fears and then pray for them or with them.

    • We will set aside time every day to pray:

    a. For all the things in our world that break God’s heart
    b. For God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven
    c. For all the things that concern us today
    d. That families and friendships would be strengthened in this time
    e. That people would be introduced to Jesus
    f. For the death of the Coronavirus
    g. That medical staff, the elderly and the most vulnerable would be protected from this evil virus
    h. About anything or anyone God places on our hearts to pray for.

    • We will all continue to grow and worship together ONLINE until we can all gather together again for public worship and in our community groups and ministry teams.

     

    May it be so to the glory of God and for the sake of world that needs the Jesus we know and love. God bless you all!

    Pastor Henry

     

     

     

     

    Dear Church Family,

    I'm sure you are aware of the rapidly escalating concerns about the COVID-19 virus and wondering how we are responding. Even though we find ourselves in a situation we've never experienced before, our trust is in the Lord and we want to assure you we are monitoring this situation closely and prayerfully considering how best we can respond as a church. During this challenging season, we have an opportunity in our city and our neighbourhoods to be not only modeling the peace and assurance we have in Christ to those in our sphere of influence who are fearful, but also showing them His love in practical ways. This is a time to be sensitive for how God is prompting us to be faithful, trusting and loving and to pray for our city, nation and world--especially for those who are directly impacted.

    On afternoon of March 12, the Alberta government took new measures to slow the spread of the Coronavirus by requiring all gatherings and events with more than 250 attendees to be cancelled. While these restrictions DO NOT extend to places of worship, as a church we want to do what we can to love and care for the health of our friends and neighbours and to cooperate with our government and health professionals to stop the spread of this virus.

    Therefore, we are taking serious precautions and making significant changes this weekend (March 14/15). We will still have our worship services at our campuses for those who wish to attend (except for South Campus*). However, we strongly encourage you to worship with us online. This will lower our attendance at our public gatherings and minimize the potential spread of the virus.

    In addition, to protect the most vulnerable, we will be postponing all weekend ministries including Children's Ministry, Grade 5 & 6, youth weekend ministry (The Pursuit), Special Needs Ministry and Maranatha Senior's Ministry until further notice. We will not be providing any food or beverages during our weekend worship services.

    *Due to circumstances beyond our control our South Campus leased facilities are unavailable to us for the foreseeable future--so please join us online.
