Join the worship online.

The Bridge In-Person worship is back! After a long wait, it is finally safe enough for us to come back and worship God together, in person! We are going to resume our in-person Sunday worships from August 8th.

We invite everyone who feels comfortable to worship in person to come and worship at 10:45 AM that day. For those who cannot join us in person. We will continue to live stream the worship on our website, YouTube channel and Facebook page.

We Need Your Help

To prepare to resume in-person worship, we need your help in the following area.

  • PowerPoint Team
  • Audio Team
  • Video Crew

You don't need to have previous experiences, but you only need to have a serving heart. We will provide the necessary training. We hope that everyone can work together for God's ministry because we are all Bridge Builders for God. If you are willing to help, please let Pastor Sunday, Pastor Iris, and Luke Lee know that you wish to join the team.

Q&A

What should I prepare before coming to the in-person worship?

A: 

  1. Make sure you are healthy and don't have any flu-like symptoms.
  2. We strongly recommend that you bring your own face mask and keep them on all the time during the service.

What to expect during and after the service

During the service

According to the BC Health official, social distance is not required on Sunday worships. However, we strongly suggest wearing your face masks the entire service. You are welcomed to sing with the worship team. Please find alternative and creative ways to greet one another, such as waving hands, head nodding, or elbow bumping.

After the service

Please clean up after yourselves and your children and help to disinfect the chapel if possible. For those who are not helping, please proceed to the parking lots 15 minutes after the service is dismissed. You are welcomed to fellowship in parking lots.

What about child care?

A: At The Bridge, we welcome children of all ages to worship with us. The church doesn't provide child care for children under 4. For children of age 4 and older, children's Sunday school is set to resume in September. In the meantime, Pastor Iris will lead a Kid's Time during The Bridge service. Alternatively, parents with babies and toddlers can take your child to the Cradle Room (room 204). The Mandarin Service will be broadcasted to the TV set in the room.

參加線上主日崇拜

The Bridge 實體主日回來了!經過了漫長的等待,終於盼來了可以安全,而且是實體的,一起敬拜神。我們將在 8 月 8 日重啟實體主日崇拜。

邀請有意參加實體聚會的弟兄姊妹當天上午 10:45 分一起來現場敬拜。暫時還不方便來到現場的弟兄姊妹仍然可以繼續在本網站、Bridge 的 YouTube 頻道,和臉書上收看直播。

我們需要同工

我們需要您一起加入以下同工的行列,使崇拜更順暢。

  • PowerPoint 組
  • 音控組
  • 錄像組

您不需要有任何經驗,(有經驗當然最棒)只要有顆願意事奉的心。我們會提供所需要的訓練。企盼每一位弟兄姊妹都能參與事奉,因為我們都是神的「造橋者」。如果您願意參與事奉,請告訴吳牧師(Pastor Sunday)、梁傳道(Pastor Iris)或李弟兄(Luke Lee)。我們會為您安排。

問與答

參加實體聚會前要注意什麼?

答: 

  1. 請確定您健康,且沒有任何類流感症狀。
  2. 我們強烈建議您隨身攜帶口罩,並在敬拜時全程配戴。

聚會時和聚會後各要注意什麼?

聚會時

按照卑詩省健康局官員的指引,主日崇拜時並不需要保持安全社交距離。但我們仍強烈建議您全程配戴口罩。您也可以跟敬拜團一起開口唱詩讚美主。在與對方打招呼時,請盡量發揮創意以取代握手。例如揮手、點頭或擊肘等。

聚會後

請幫忙清潔您和孩子的座位,並幫忙消毒。不方便幫忙的弟兄姊妹請在聚會結束後 15 分鐘內移步到停車場。您可以盡情在停車場與弟兄姊妹們團契。

有兒童照護服務嗎?

答: The Bridge 歡迎任何年齡層的孩子與我們一起敬拜神。教會目前並沒有提供四歲以下孩童的照護服務。對四歲和以上的孩童,兒童主日學預計將於九月份回復實體聚會。在那之前,梁葵卿傳道將在主日崇拜中預備一個兒童時間。另外,照顧嬰孩和學齡前幼童的父母也可以選擇帶孩子到「搖籃室」(204 房間)。那裡有電視直播中文堂的崇拜。

佈道會前

  • 請各團契及查經班弟兄姊妹提出邀請朋友的名單,請提報給教會,以便牧者們為這些朋友提名禱告。
  • 請弟兄姊妹們也每天為自己小組所提出來的福音朋友提名禱告。
  • 請有邀請朋友的弟兄姐妹在佈道會前一天再次邀請/提醒自己的朋友參加。

佈道會後

請邀請朋友的弟兄姊妹在佈道會結束兩天內聯繫自己邀請的朋友。以下是如何跟進朋友的建議:

  1. 請問你有沒有機會參加這個佈道會?如果有,請到第 4 點。如果沒有,請到第 2 點。
  2. 我們有錄像,我可以邀請你一起看嗎?(請在佈道會結束後兩週內一起看)
  3. 看完後,繼續下面的問題。
  4. 你覺得這個聚會(或可說演講,視福音朋友如何理解)有什麼想法?
  5. 對你有什麼幫助嗎?
  6. 你有沒有興趣多了解這個信仰?(如果有,方便請我們的一位傳道人與你聯絡嗎?)

請弟兄姊妹把自己跟進的朋友的情況回報給組長,組長彙整後匯報給教會。請在佈道會結束後一週內匯報跟進的狀態。

Dear Bridge Builders,

As many of you will have heard yesterday, in response to the developing situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19), B.C. health officials put a ban in place for gatherings of over 250 people. ECBC’s Pastors, Elders and Deacons have prayerfully decided to follow their recommendations and are committed to maintaining the health and safety of our church family and the broader B.C. community. Therefore, effective March 15th and until further notice we will not gather in-person for Sunday worship at our church building. Please be assured that we have already been carefully following the B.C. government recommendations and have been sanitizing our church building since Covid-19 became a concern.

It is our hope and prayer that this situation will not continue long and we will once again be able to be together as God’s local expression of His church. Please join us in prayer that we will be able to gather on or before April 12th Easter Sunday. Easter is such an important time to remember and celebrate the amazing grace of God and the wonderful gift of our Saviour. We will update you as the Covid-19 virus situation develops.

What does this mean going forward? How do I stay connected?

ECBC Church is still a church even though our building is closed for public worship! We are working hard to video-record and eventually live stream our Sunday services.

Attend Church Online: https://bridge.ecbc.org/index.php/sunday-worship.html
Time: Sunday @ 10:55 AM

You can also catch-up on many of our past messages on our website under Sermons.

How Can I Help?

Christian Community is very important and this is no less true at this very unusual circumstance. We want to continue to strengthen the community during this time!

Pray. Pray for our nation’s leaders, health officials and church leaders that they will lead with God’s wisdom.  In Ephesians 6:18 we are invited to, “pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”

Care for our neighbours. As salt and light in the world let us care for our neighbours, with the hope that we have in Christ.

For those who are wondering how to worship through tithes and offerings there are online giving options (Please check www.ecbc.org)

We Are Here to Help You

Our church office will remain open! We understand this can be an unsettling time for many. If we can pray with you and support you in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact Rev. Sunday at (604.438.3222 Ext. 212) and/or email our pastoral staff.

A Message From Our Pastors

The promises in God’s Word are incredible sources of comfort in all situations and especially in times like these. Psalm 91 begins with these words, “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” (Psalm 91:1,2)  

God is indeed our fortress in whom we can trust. Draw close to the Lord for He is your strength and your comfort.

May the peace of God be with you all.

Love,
Your Pastors

各位弟兄姐妹:

各位想必已經從新聞媒體得知因為新冠肺炎的流行,B. C. 省衛生局宣布禁止超過 250 人以上的大型聚會。請放心,教會早已悉心按照省政府的建議,經常性的消毒各項公共設施。聖道堂的牧者、長老、執事們經過禱告及討論後,決定依規定執行,以保護眾弟兄姊妹的平安及健康。我們將自 3 月 15 日主日,直到另行通知為止,改為網路視訊主日崇拜。

我們的禱告是,疫情不會持續太久,乃至我們可以很快再一次聚集在神所設立的這個地方教會聚會。我們衷心的盼望能在 4 月 12 日復活節時一起聚會,因為復活節是紀念神奇妙的恩典,以及耶穌基督這個最好的禮物的日子。所以我們邀請你們與我們一起祈求神的恩典。我們會繼續通知大家。

接下來呢?怎麼保持聯繫?

就算我們暫時不在教會的建築中聚會,聖道堂還是一個教會!我們會準時每主日一起在網路上視訊敬拜神。

我能幫什麼忙?

即使在這個非常時期,基督徒的群體仍然十分重要。我們期望繼續建造這個群體。

讓我們同心禱告。為國家領導人、衛生官員及教會的領袖禱告,讓他們以神的智慧來施行領導。以弗所書 6:18 邀請我們「靠著聖靈,隨時多方禱告祈求,並要在此警醒不倦,為眾聖徒祈求。」

關懷我們的鄰舍。讓我們憑著在耶穌基督裡所得的盼望,以關懷鄰舍的行動來成為這個世界的光和鹽。

牧者的話

神話語中的應許是我們在各樣景況,特別是現今這樣的時刻中,最大的安慰。詩篇 91 篇的頭兩節說:「住在至高者隱密處的,必住在全能者的蔭下。 我要論到耶和華說:『他是我的避難所,是我的山寨,是我的神,是我所倚靠的。』」(和合本)

神真是值得我們依靠的山寨。親近祂,因祂是你的力量和安慰。

願神的平安與你同在

愛你們的牧者
