New Vision Notes Frid Oct 15 2021

Fri Oct 15 2021

  1. As we joyfully enter into our post-Thanksgiving season we begin to gather ourselves together for our annual Threshold Partnership Commitment Renewal Sunday. More on this in the next few weeks after our New Vision Church Council meeting this coming Tuesday evening.
  2. We are worshipping both in-person on our MacNab campus (24 Main W) and virtually each Sunday morning live at 10:30 am. Under Step 3 rules we can have up to 25 people in-person at our worship gatherings. There is room for more of us if you’d like to come! If you feel ready to venture out to join in, we will be following all the prescribed protocols for Step 3, including hand-sanitizing, face-masks, 2 metre physical distancing, no congregational singing, and screening questions on arrival. Entrance will be through the Youth Centre entrance on MacNab Street. If you have any symptoms of illness, please plan not to attend in person on Sunday morning.
  3. With the new vaccine certificate protocol anyone with a green health card can print and have their vaccine certificate laminated for free at any branch of the Hamilton Public Library. For more info:
  4. New Vision Virtual Worship is experiential, participatory, image-rich and collective, just like worship in person at New Vision! Join us on Sunday mornings 10:30 am week to week during the Covid-19 emergency by clicking here. If you want to put the link someplace easy to find each week, here it is: Please share it with others and invite them to a “different” kind of time on Zoom from the usual.
  5. You can also call in to the gathering on the telephone toll free. Call 1 647 374 4685, then, when prompted, input the Meeting ID 782 292 511 followed by the # sign. Ignore the prompts for Participant ID and Password. You are in when the recorded voice says, “You are in the meeting.” If you can only connect by video on your computer with no audio, you can use the phone connection for audio and the computer connection for visual.
  6. The organ console has been moved from its centre stage perch onto its own cart, giving us more space on the stage for performers and speakers.

Hope to see you Sunday ~ virtually, or in-person ~
