- Planning for in-person worship
God calls His covenant nation “the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise.” (Isaiah 43:21) Ever since COVID Emergency regulations forced us to suspend in-person services, we eagerly looked forward to being able to physically gather again to proclaim God’s praise. The new COVID regulations have given churches permission for in-person worship.
We’re seeking your input as we plan to start those services again.
Thank you for your help with this important project.

In order to better coordinate the virtual worship services in three languages, the Mandarin worship will occur at 10:30am. English will still be at 9:30am, Cantonese at 11:30am.
We’ll see you at mcpc.ca/live on Sunday morning!

As the COVID-19 situation evolves and gatherings are still prohibited, MCPC will use livestreaming of all three services (English, Cantonese and Mandarin) on Sunday at their usual times. Please reload this page for the livestream link 15 minutes before your service.
For offering, we recommend to use Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR). It will allow for automatic electronic offering on the 20th of every month. MCPC has been utilizing this service by the United Church for several years. Please download, fill out and send this PAR Authorization Form along with a void cheque via email to email@example.com. You can print it out to scan or take a picture of the form and void cheque with your mobile phone.
Receipt for tax purposes will be issued at the end of the year.
If you have any questions regarding PAR, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and the Board of Managers will reply to you.

Dear MCPC Family,
COVID-19 is causing disruption to our daily life, as it has caused pain and suffering in China, Iran, Italy, and other parts of the world. As recommended by government health professionals, an effective way to prevent transmission is not gathering in large numbers and close proximity.
As MCPC is a family that includes seniors to young children, our church leaders believe it is prudent and responsible to suspend all worship services and ministry programs immediately until further notice. It is not a decision taken lightly but with faith, compassion and love. In the meantime, we are investigating alternative forms of worship through online technology.
While Sunday worship services are halted temporarily, our church doors will be open between 10:00-11:00 AM on Sunday for those who wish to seek comfort and quiet time with God in the sanctuary for prayers and reflection.
“casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7)
由於MCPC是一個扶老攜幼的大家庭，所以我們的教會領袖們認為，有需要立即暫停所有敬拜和教會聚會，直至另行通知為止，我們相信這是審慎又負責任的做法。 這不是一個輕易的決定，而是帶著信心，充滿恩慈和愛心的決定。 同時，我們正在研究通過互聯網舉行其他形式的崇拜。
雖然週日的崇拜和教會活動暫時停止，但我們教會的門將在禮拜日上午10:00 – 11:00 之間打開，讓弟兄姊妹在聖殿裡尋求上帝的安慰, 經歷與主一起安靜,祈禱和反思。
你 們 要 將 一 切 的 憂 慮 卸 給 神 ， 因 為 他 顧 念 你 們 。(彼 得 前 書 5:7)
