Greetings to all within our
We at St. Peters hope and pray that you, as a faithful member of our church
family, are staying safe. This must still be a priority even though we have
flattened the curve if we want to maintain our low numbers.
We would like to bring you up to date on some of the things that
have been happening.
When we resume in-person services we invite you to join us. Keep checking here for online services and for an update as to when in-person services will resume.
Our time at church will look and feel much different as we become accustomed to new ways of gathering. While we look forward to gathering for in-person worship, it's unrealistic to expect things to be as they were before the pandemic.
We will continue to offer online services for those who don’t feel comfortable at in-person worship and the service will air on this website, using the YouTube connection below.
We ask you to follow these practices when in-person worship resumes:
You are asked to self-screen before making your way to church, if you feel unwell, you have travelled in the last 14 days, or have been exposed to someone with Covid 19, please do not attend the service
Maintain a 2 meter distance from people who are not in your family bubble.
Wear a mask at all times (in accordance with the Waterloo Region Bylaw) Masks will be available for those who need one
There will be hand sanitizer available at the door, you must use the hand sanitizer upon entering the church
There will be music in our worship with singing softly and spoken responses with masks on.
Do not gather in the vestibule before or after worship as this will make it difficult for others to enter or exit the building.
At the end of the service Pastor Olaf will ask members to leave by the last pews first and then the rest follow one pew at a time.
The Offering plate will be at the entrance vestibule.
We are considering live streaming our services, and we would like your feedback before we take on the extra expense. If you are interested in live streaming services please respond by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Pastor Olaf at 519-725-3023.
We want to thank all of those who have continued to support St. Peters through their givings during these trying times. We greatly appreciate everything you have given to support our church. Thank you very much.
Keep in touch with someone you haven't talked to for a while. You would be surprised how much it will be appreciated. Remember you are not alone in this. We are ALL in this together, and love and our faith in the Lord will guide us through.
Yes, these are unfortunate times, but with fervent prayer and much Spirit-filled forbearance, I have little doubt that we shall experience a successful return to full congregational activity.
If you have any questions or require assistance please contact Pastor Olaf or any of the church council.
Blessings from Pastor Olaf J. Poulsen and St. Peter's Church Council
If you have any questions please contact Pastor Olaf 519-725-3023 or
Clare Kappes 519-664-1425.
He's got the whole world in his hands.
****Services for St. Peters Church Heidelberg****
We invite you to continue to join us as we resume in-person worship on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. every first and third Sunday and 11:00 a.m. every second and fourth Sunday of the month. Recorded services will continue to be online for those who need it. Online services will be one Sunday behind.
Thank you, St. Peters Council
We are extremely blessed to bring our services to you virtually. This wouldn't be possible without the help of Pastor Olaf, organist Dan Amorim and assistant Eryn Lobsinger. We thank them for the time and dedication put forward to produce these services for our church and its members.
