NPA UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19 VIRUS
The current provincial restrictions limit us to 1/3 of fire code in attendance. This allows us to come together without signing up for service. We are operating with a mandated mask wearing. You can also join us with online services. Please provide your own mask as we have a limited number. There is hand sanitizer spread throughout the facilities and high touch areas are sanitized.
For those joining us online, we are live on Facebook at 11 am, and uploaded to YouTube by 2 pm. The links are at the bottom of this page.
