Ep.145 - The Impact of Online Services

with Helen Garda

November 15, 2021 • Carrie Jones

Throughout the months of COVID lockdowns, we grieved the shutting down of our buildings on Sunday morning and having to shift to the backup plan of online services. But God can bring good things from bad situations and we quickly learned that the online service was serving as a way for those who might not otherwise be able to attend Southridge to become a part of the family. On today's episode, Carrie sits down with Helen Garda to hear one of these stories. Helen and her family began taking part in the online service while they were living in Edmonton. They're now living in Niagara and call Southridge home. Check out this amazing conversation!
