Earlier this week the comment was made “We are living in unparalleled times…” While I understand the sentiment, it simply isn’t true. Over the last 2,000 years the church, God’s people, have walked through times of war, famine, disease, and upheaval. In fact, Garrison Road Church started in 1857 and was around during the Spanish Flu pandemic in 1918 and both world wars. 

Through every moment Jesus has been faithful! God is greater. His love for us is beyond measure. Jesus walks with us and leads us as we follow in his steps. 

“So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Isaiah 41:10 (NIV)

At Garrison Road Church we are praying for wisdom and heeding the advice of public health on navigating the pandemic. Here are some of the changes taking place:

Public Meetings

In response to Niagara Public Health, we are temporarily suspending public meetings of 50 or more people. This means our Sunday morning worship service will be available online only. The church building will be closed. We are planning to live stream our service at our regular time on Facebook at:

https://www.facebook.com/garrisonroadchurch/

This is our public Facebook page and not our private Facebook group. Make sure you are on the right page!

If you know someone who may not be able to watch because they do not have a computer or cell phone please consider inviting them to join you. Please only do this if all parties are healthy. 

Giving

We have had inquiries about how people can continue to give their offerings. Here are the current options:
