Here is the material for this week's worship service. The video is still uploading (it's taking a long, long time today!), so I'll link to our YouTube page. Simply look for the video titled "Sunday, October 18th, 2020" and click on it and you'll be magically transported to our sanctuary...well, not quite, but you get the idea.
Bulletin is below or by clicking on the weekly bulletin tab above.
The service will be on our YouTube channel later today and will be labled "Sunday, October 18th, 2020". It is set to premiere at 10:30 AM tomorrow as per usual. Click on this link:

Visit us on the Rothwell Facebook page and see what is happening. Through the year you are welcome to join in on the many activities posted such as euchre and game events, music nights, potlucks, men's club, church choir, bell choir, prayer group, prayer chain, special guest speakers, Christian's Single's Club, Rothwell Sunday Club for the kids, and the list goes on!
We are a community-based church focused on helping to make the world a better, happier place. Some of the activities that we are passionate about include: volunteering with the Interchurch Refugee Group, Gloucester Emergency Food Bank and Pastoral Care for shut-ins. and monthly communion services at the Beacon Heights Seniors Residence. Generosity, compassion and gratitude come together and create a meaningful faith community.
Rev. Mike will be recording the Sunday service in the Sanctuary at 6:30 PM on Thursday evenings. With the infection numbers in Ottawa/Ontario ticking upward, we remain firm in our decision to continue suspending Sunday gatherings for the foreseeable future. We have been told it's safe to have a handful of people in the building from time to time. We would like to have a small studio audience for our recording on Thursday. We will be limiting the number to 10. You'll be sitting far away from each other, wearing masks, signing in for contact tracing purposes, and there'll be no singing or bulletins. Sounds like fun, right? If you would like to join us, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office. First come, first served.
Outdoor Service: Rev. Mike would like to plan another outdoor service for the Fall. More information will be coming soon.

Our Rothwell Family
Neil Johnstone is remembering his wife Joy.
We received word that Eila Ledingham passed away on Wednesday, October 14th. As many of you know, Eila's health has been ebbing for some time. It was fortunate that she was able to remain at home with Bob in their new residence for these past several months. She passed away while Bob was having breakfast. Their family is with Bob and they are doing what families do...loving each other through this. Eila’s large family and Rev. Mike gathered on Friday at Chapel Hill Residence for prayer, memories, and celebrating Eila's life.
