  1. “Happy Thanksgiving!” We’re glad you’ve joined us – in-person or remotely. We thank the many brothers and sisters laboring together to make this worship service possible.
  2. If you are burdened to come together to pray for brothers and sisters who have requested our prayer, join us in the Virtual Worship room at 10:15 AM each Sunday. We’ll pray in small groups, and end by 10:30 AM.
  3. We thank the Lord that after a month of In-person Worship and Youth Sunday School, today we welcome back our children (K to Gr. 7) to their Sunday School classes. The gymnasium is the zone designated for Children Ministry. In compliance with Provincial health guidelines, we have 50 seats available for worshipers in the sanctuary. Please register online through our website (fec-richmond.com) if you plan to be at church on Sunday for worship or Sunday School. The online registration deadline for Youth and College Sunday School students is Friday 7 pm due to logistical issues.
