A REAL Church

For REAL People


Helping people CONNECT with God and others


Challenging people to GROW in the truth of God’s Word, and their relationship with Jesus


Giving people a “place to play,” as they serve others and their community


Encouraging people to LAUNCH into whatever God’s mission is for them

Yep…it’s really happening! And it’s almost here… This Sunday (6th), The Message is finally opening up again for in-person worship! Of course it will look a bit different that ‘normal,’ but we’ve made a plan and safety protocols are in place, so here we go!

When to arrive Doors will open at 10:15
Service starts at 10:30
What to bring Mask (mandatory)
We will provide if you don’t have one
Disposable gloves(optional)
What to do when you enter the building – Sanitize your hands (mandatory)
– Present your electronic health declaration form (mandatory)
Health Declaration Form Details Three options:
1. Use this link to fill out the form. https://app.smartsheet.com/b/form/dde037319cf04e77bf6c20da09794790
2. Download our church app from Google Play or the Apple APP Store and fill out the form on the app or the church website.
3. Fill out a hard copy (available at church) of the form. Clean pens will also be provided.

If you fill out the electronic version, you will receive an email that you will need to show from your phone when you get to church.
Chairs Chairs will be socially distanced apart in the sanctuary. Please be respectful of people’s space.

Children All children must stay with their parent/guardians, wear a mask, and please keep them from running around the sanctuary from person to person.

Singing Singing is discouraged by the ministry. Please be respectful of how you worship along with the music/videos being played on the screen.
Suggestions: Hum, sing quietly in your mask, or more to yourself. Try using non-verbal or sign language movements.

Communion Individual (sealed) juice/wafer combos will be available on the back table to pick up by each person/family
Offering An offering basket will be placed on the back table for those that choose not to donate electronically via the church app
End of service • Leave the chairs up. They will be sanitized before stacking.
• Socially distance as you exit the building.

Again…is most all of this new and different from the way we used to do church? Very much so! But it’s the hand we’ve been dealt right now. And so we must adjust our methods to continue our mission of reaching more people for Jesus Christ. Remember – all throughout history, methods have had to adapt or change for various reasons. But the one thing that will never change is the mission and message of Jesus, and that eternal salvation and security only comes through him!
As our church’s founding verse says: “Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ” (Romans 10:17) Well, this is just the new way/method, we get to continue that very mission and message!

God bless you all…I love you and can’t wait to see you soon!

Carl Lipke


Carl Lipke is the senior minister for The Message Christian Church…which was a brand new church plant back in 2012, in which he and a small team of volunteers (including his wife, Amy), founded and launched here in Orangeville. “Why another church, you ask?” Because in short – planting new, vibrant, Christian churches is still the greatest way to reach new communities for Christ. Especially in cultures where most people have long walked away from the more traditional churches.
