Faithway Baptist Church
Our Response to COVID -19:
Faithway Church has canceled all group ministries at the church until November1
At which time we will reassess the situation.
We are following the guidelines set for us by our government and we also want to take extra precautions to protect those who are vulnerable. This means that the public gathering of Awana, Bible Studies, Retirees Ministry, Games Time Café, Public Events, Prayer Meeting and Youth are ALL canceled or only online until further notice. To some this may sound like extreme measures, to others it may sound like appropriate measures. In whatever case we need to show grace to all. We are in this together. Let us be clear we are not acting out of fear but out of sacrificial love to those who are most at risk.
We will be updating the church every Thursday or as is needed, as the situation changes. These are days of temporal change to ministry at Faithway, but please do not miss the opportunity offered to us in these days. Our prayer is for testimonies of salvation, growth, family worship and renewed connections to come out of our current circumstances. We look forward to once again meeting together as a church family but until then keep looking to Him, who is our hope and firm foundation.
The nation and the city of Woodstock are much in our prayers.
Re-Opening of Church:
Faithway Church has given great thought and consideration to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We are following the guidelines set out by the Ministry of Health and Southwestern Public Health Board, to safety re-open our doors and gather together again to Worship Christ on Sunday mornings. As of right now, we have limited seating over our
2 services 9 a.m and 10:45 a.m to which you must register for each week here.
This is to adhere to the 2m social distancing guidelines to make the environment as safe as possible for all attendees. Our services will be family orientated, as there will be no children’s ministry at this time and our services will also be shortened in time. As of October 11 we will have nursery for children newborn - age 4. Thank you for your patience and grace as we navigate through these uncharted times and begin to re-open as safely and respectfully as possible, following all the safety protocols that have been set in place by our Government, to create a safe place for us to gather together once again. Please continue to pray that by opening up in this way we will be protected from having any cases in our congregation. We will keep you updated if there are any more changes to the guidelines moving forward.
