All SSUC in-person gatherings have been cancelled until further notice. Currently, Food Bank Depot and some AA groups will continue with modified procedures for safety and health.
As people who take seriously how we live our values and engage our living in the world, we have two primary responsibilities with regard to our response to the global Coronavirus pandemic. First, we must provide a safe space for all, especially our vulnerable members. We will not put ourselves at any unnecessary risk – our own health is a great responsibility. Second, we all play a part in being responsible members of the public, reducing transmission risk now rather than waiting until numbers spike. Slowing the spread of this disease is up to each of us.
We will continue to connect as a community through our Sunday online stream at 10:00am MDT each Sunday. Please participate by joining us online either here on our Facebook page or at SSUCedmonton.com/live. We are working hard to offer as many alternative ways to connect as possible. With staff support, groups can make use of the technology at our disposal for online meetings or gatherings. Read about our new opportunities to connect online here.
We are not – we are here for each other. If you need specific care and connection, please be in touch with our ministry team, who are available to you by phone, email, chat or in person. In the meantime, let’s continue being the people and community we strive to be: open, thoughtful and compassionate. Let’s stay active and make efforts to engage in safe activities that bring our lives meaning.
