Council Minutes

I hope this finds you all doing well.  Church School will have started by the time you read this.  There are several families that will be attending and several that will not because of the covid-19 issue.  The start of a new school year is an exciting time of the year because typically the kids will often say they are not interested in a topic but as the year progresses, they start asking questions either in class or privately to better understand a topic.  This means interest and, in our case, a better understanding of God, consequently we have a winner because of this curiosity and gathered knowledge.  We can’t forget these young people are the future of our church.


Don Moore has been working hard to upgrade our audiovisual system along with Nathan, a young man Scott suggested to help in this upgrade, are making progress.  It seems it is a learn on the go situation, they are making progress.  This past weekend if you tuned into Facebook live you would have been able to hear the service very clearly. Don is the only person at this point that knows this system but JJ Clendenin will be learning the system soon so that Don can leave for a Sunday or two in the future.  We need more people trained to step in if Don and JJ can’t be a part of the Sunday service so please step forward to help in this part of our service.


The council is looking at fixing the parish house roof.  It is in need of major repairs.  There have been several options suggested but nothing solid at this time.


Our Sunday attendance continues to have highs and lows but on average it seems we are slowly creeping up so if you feel comfortable coming to church come on in or if you don’t feel comfortable listen in it is a good place to be.
