A Message from Steve & Sandra Long
It is with sadness in our hearts that we let you know that we've decided to close our Downtown church (formerly known as Central). A verbal announcement was made early this evening to those who were in attendance at our Downtown meeting. They were told that next Sunday, May 5th will be our last meeting and it will be a celebration party.
Sandra and I, along with the Downtown leadership team of Steve Cox, RuthAnn Bartello, Lauren Kannwischer, along with our Toronto pastors, made this hard decision this past week. We've been praying and asking the Lord for wisdom for the last several months as we saw this possibility on the horizon.
Central, as it was first known, has had a rich history. Duncan and Kate Smith were the heart behind its launch over a decade ago. Linda Cho and Andrew Gazaneo were the first pastors. Many people came to know Jesus at this campus. Many people, especially young adults, had their start in ministry at this campus. We honour and celebrate this incredible history with you.
We'd love for everyone to migrate to one of our GTA Catch The Fire churches, you can find one of these at www.catchthefire.com. If you live in west Toronto, you may like to check out the Toronto main location at 272 Attwell Dr. If you live east of Yonge St, you may find that Catch The Fire Scarborough is your best option (www.ctfscarborough.com).
