Summer E-Memo

“Behold, I make all things new” (Rev. 21:5)

 

With these words we are reminded that God has a future for us that is immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine. As we move into the Canada Day weekend, Stampede, and summer, may you and your family find some of this newness that God has in store for you!

There are not many events to announce this month, but the church’s ministry and mission continue. In addition to Sunday morning services at the regular time, two others that come to my mind are Side-by-Side and Inn from the Cold. If you haven’t had an opportunity to volunteer with these groups, you may find that the summer provides an excellent opportunity to check them out and see what they do.

Upcoming events in July:

  • Sunday July 9 following worship will be a Stampede Breakfast!
  • Tuesday July 18 7:00 p.m. Meeting of Presbytery to consider the call of the Rev. Dr. Peter Coutts. This will be held at VAPC, room to be announced. This is an open meeting that members of the congregation are welcome to attend.

 

*** Final Note: The congregation should also be proud of the Shine campaign, which far exceeded expectations! As of June 25, the total amount raised (givings and pledges) was $70,729.65. With matching funds from the Special Initiatives Fund, this amounts to a total for phase 1 of the campaign of $120,729.65. Congratulations!
