SERVICES MOVE TO FACEBOOK LIVE

In order to do our part to protect the community from the spread of COVID-19, we are moving our worship service from our public space to a FACEBOOK LIVE event at our regular time (Sundays 11:00 am). Click Here to access our live feed.

ARE YOU FOLLOWING US?

It probably should have happened a long time ago, but Keele now has a Twitter account.

The reason why we have finally left the tree and soared off into the Twitterverse is to aid in connecting us while we have to livestream our services as a result of COVID-19. It is our hope that the congregation can interact with the service and send prayer requests, questions, and just encouragement that you are out there and we are still together.

It is time for you to get your own twitter account. Just go to Twitter and sign up for your free account, then follow us @ChurchKeele.  If you already have an account, you know what to do!

MUSINGS ON PSALM 46

Have you ever been in an earthquake?  I have. A few minor ones here in Toronto. That strange, oscillating, movement of a foundation that is usually solid and dependable, messes with you.  It makes your body betray you.  It radiates a signal that sends your nervous system into a panic.

Have you ever seen a tornado, up close and personal?  I have. I was in a security trailer, at Sheppard and Weston, as I watched a tornado rip a bus shelter out of its concrete anchors (I never did see where it deposited it). I saw it rip the roof off a factory building directly across from me, like it was the perforated cardboard top off a Kleenex box.  All this happened as close as 50 metres from my not-so-secure location. 

Some things we experience make our legs feel wobbly and our world feel wobblier still. Like, for example, mountains quaking and falling into the heart of the sea and the tsunami that follows.  (Psalm 46:2-3).  

This is not the stuff we normally experience. This isn’t the kind of thing we have reference points for that help us file our experiences under the “Not to worry, I’ve seen this before!” category.  

Well, it wouldn’t surprise me if we all had wobbly legs right now. I know that I, at least, do. It all boils down to not having a category to file all the rapid-fire, shifting, quaking flood of changes and information that both surrounds and isolates us.  It is all a bit overwhelming, isn’t it?

WE’RE RAISING THE ROOF!

Dear Attenders at Keele: We have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that we have finished paying off our loan for the new roof on our addition. The bad news is that we have to finally, after over 100 years, replace the slate roof on the original building. Unfortunately the slate has become a danger and we can no longer repair it.

As a result we asked for quotes from various roofers and have been in talks with the city since the building is listed as a heritage property, this past Sunday (June 21) we made our decision and we are going to have the same steel roof installed that we used on the addition. In order to do that, we are going to have the slate removed. The cost is going to be close to $50,000. We know this is a large expense, but it is also an inescapable expense. Please be praying about how you can support this new project and help keep the property both safe and in good repair.

As of the end of May we have raised $23,320.00! Praise the Lord and everyone who has been so generous!
