AT THE CONGREGATIONAL MEETING ON FEBRUARY 22, 2015,

it was voted to enter into a co-operative ministry with

the Bluevale United Church.

Our congregation voted to try the 9:30 am service start time.

This new service time began on Sunday March 22, 2015.

If you have any concerns as this partnership proceeds they should be brought to any member of the partnership committee, (Greg Buchanan, Richard Hall, Joyce Miller, Avaline Wandel, Peg Cameron, Andy McBride and Al Skelton) who will bring this information forward to the regular joint meetings which will be held with Bluevale;

and to our Official Board meetings.

PLEASE CONSIDER SETTING UP “PAR”    PAR is the pre-authorized payment plan for your church offering. There is no charge and the amount you choose comes from the bank account of your choice, and is credited directly to the church. No more missed Sundays, or catching up. PAR helps your church with even support to meet its obligations. PAR makes it easy for you, to offer consistent support, and to know you have done your part!
