We look forward to meeting again someday soon.  Please take a few moments to let us know how you might be able to help us towards this goal.  Use the button below to sign up.

-------------------------------------------------------

Like many of you, we have been following the news, monitoring Toronto Public Health statements and listening closely to the Ontario Government's guidelines. Although we would like to begin having indoor services, you can see the case count is increasing. The WPBC Leadership team has made the decision to not reopen at this time.

The WPBC Leadership team will continue to meet every two weeks to discuss the possibility of reopening church. However, online Sunday worship will continue, and we are also exploring the possibility of offering other online groups such as Bible study, book club, group chats, etc. As we move forward in preparing for a soft reopening, we will need your support

Would You Help Us Open?

When we meet we will need to follow clear safety protocols if we are all to stay safe.  To open our doors it will take many hands and much support.  The fact is, if we don't have enough volunteers to follow through with these protocols, we won't be able to meet.

As a leadership team we have identified three key areas where you can help:

  1. Administration Team - Duties

    • Set up registration email and phone line
    • Send reminder out day before registration deadline
    • Gather information from email and phone line and input it into registration sheet.
    • Designate pews per registration (Alcove will be used for drop-in overflow)
    • Put bulletin and children packages in pews – per registration
    • Bi-weekly commitment – two teams of 2
  2. Ushers Team - Duties

    • Arrive 30 minutes before the service
    • Set up table in lobby with hand sanitizer and registration list
    • Escort people to designated pews according to the registration list
    • Escort people out of the church after service in orderly fashion
    • Monitor bathroom during the service
    • Once per month commitment – four teams of 3
  3. Cleaning Team - Duties

    • Arrive 45 minutes before the service
    • Wipe down pews, bannisters and doorknobs surrounding church sanctuary prior to and after the service
    • Once per month commitment  – four teams of 3

As you can see, there will be some adjustment in our normal gathering, but it will be good to gather together again. If you are able to volunteer or have any further questions please contact us at theoffice@westonparkbaptist.org or call 416-241-3861 and leave a message. We look forward to hearing from you.

Blessings from,

Darlene Lucas on behalf of the WPBC Leadership Team
