Scripture Union has cancelled all Summer Camps for 2020. Please pray for this wonderful ministry as they navigate a difficult time. Pray for the kids of Michell, too!

God and Father,

We ask for your grace to be poured out of the children of Mitchell,

I pray they would receive the great gift that you have offered in your Son, Jesus Christ.

Show us today our part to play in your mission,

As we serve Jesus our Lord,

Amen.

Services: The church Directors and Deacons met to discuss future services. We will have an ONLINE ONLY service indefinitely. Online discussion will be encouraged during and after the message and worship as they are live streamed Sunday mornings. (See links at the bottom of this page.)
Constant Contact: The Directors and Deacons will be sharing responsibility with the pastors to contact the church family to check-in, pray, and pass along prayer requests. But more importantly, contact each other – we are all called to love our neighbours!
Assistance: If you require help please contact the church office! (519-348-4445 / upperthames@utmc.ca). If you would like to help, again, contact the church office.
Offering: We encourage you to give online (the give button in the top right corner of your screen) or by e-mail (giving@utmc.ca) as it requires the least contact. Of course, you may give by bringing offering to the office, or if you are unable to leave your home we can arrange someone to pick it up.
