Programs STILL HAPPENING
Service Live Stream
As long as we are able, we will continue to live stream a worship service each Saturday morning at 11 am. (A skeleton crew of essential volunteers will make this happen.) Visit our YouTube channel here: youtube.com/c/reallylivingcentre.
Creation Health Walking Challenge
Getting outside for fresh air and sunshine is one of the best things we can do right now. Our current sermon series on health already challenged us to get outside and walk more, and we continue to tally and update our exercise progress weekly. Click here for more info.
UPDATE: APRIL 24—The prayer line is suspended until further notice.
Our Prayer Ministry Team has coordinated call-in prayer sessions. At each of the following times, a prayer team member will be on the line to moderate:
- 6 AM Daily
- 12 Noon Daily (except Sabbaths)
- 8 PM Daily
Dial-in number: 1-867-292-3030

Follow the voice prompts and enter the access code followed by the # sign.
Sabbath School Via Zoom
Those who wish may participate in a virtual Sabbath School using the Zoom app from 9:30–10:30 am.
Download the Zoom app onto a computer, laptop, or mobile device (phone/tablet) that has both video and audio (microphone) capabilities.
On Saturday morning just before 9:30 am open the app on your device and enter the 9-digit meeting code that will be distributed each week via our Thursday e-newsletter.
- You can set up a Zoom account, but you don’t need to.
- You will be connected via video so just a heads-up that you need to be dressed 🙂
- Once connected to the meeting, you will need to activate your microphone and video using links/icons along the bottom of your screen.
If you haven’t used it already, Adventist Giving is an easy and convenient way to continue to return what belongs to the Lord (tithe) and to provide offerings of gratitude. Click here to give: https://reallyliving.ca/giving/

We encourage any groups that wish to meet virtually to do so through such free venues as Google Hangouts or Zoom.
A private group has been created on Facebook to allow our members and attendees to chat in a non-public forum. You need to already have a Facebook account in order to join the group, and be a member/attendee of Really Living.
