From The Pastors and Leadership of Downsview

Well we have to give thanks to God for the victory His has won on our behalf, The province has announced that churches can open at 30%, what does that mean? For Downsview that means 182 persons can attend a regular schedule worship service. The Ontario Conference has asked the churches to wait and not to open up immediately. At Downsview we have started the process of preparing to re-open, please understand, this is a process, re-open will not happen overnight. We have a lot of prayer, work, discussions and preparation ahead of us. Before we can even consider re-open the building, we are asking for your patience as we begin the work necessary to protect everyone and make re-opening a possibility. We will keep you informed every step of the way and we will be asking for your input as we now start the journey back to church. Thank you for the support, ministry to each other and the community and your prayers and words of encouragement. Please stay safe and take care of yourself.

From Pastor King to you

Sensational media headlines keep us stressed, agitated, and fearful because fear-fueled news sells. Press-induced or politically motivated panic will stoke more pandemic fear and consequences than the source of the crisis. Stay current with pertinent news that might affect you personally, but don’t overwhelm yourself reading everything written on the internet.
Taking recommended and reasonable steps to protect yourself and your loved ones will give you a sense of control that helps to manage uncertainties. Prudently, continue your normal activities that typically bring you joy. Healthy coping mechanisms like exercise, rest, eating properly, reading your Bible, staying connected to friends and family, and listening to praise music can help soothe frazzled nerves. If you have medical anxiety, contact your doctor.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
~Philippians 4:8

A Message from Pastor Folkes

“21 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward the sky so that darkness spreads over Egypt—darkness that can be felt.” 22 So Moses stretched out his hand toward the sky, and total darkness covered all Egypt for three days. 23 No one could see anyone else or move about for three days. Yet all the Israelites had light in the places where they lived.” Exodus 10:21-23 (NIV)
Can you imagine what the people in Egypt must have thought when this was happening? In a lot of ways, there was probably mass panic in the same way we’re seeing today. Sure, there weren’t any Costco, or Walmart, No Frills, or FreshCo where you could go to stockpile food and other essentials (like toilet paper!!!) for the foreseeable future, but that doesn’t mean that it was any less of a scary time.
The Bible says that it was dark, really, really, dark. It was so dark that people couldn’t go anywhere, do anything, or see anyone. And it was like this for three days! Now, three days may not seem like a long time for some, but if you’ve ever been sick and had to stay in bed for a few days, three days can feel like a lifetime. At the time of this writing, we’ve been stuck inside our homes for almost seven days. Crazy how quickly things can change right? Things went from, “Just wash your hands” to “Everyone stay home” in no time. Crazy! And yet, I’m encouraged when read about the plagues in Egypt. Why? Because it shows me that even in dark times, God still provides for his people. Verse 23 tells us that during this time there was still light where God’s people lived.
