             SESSION HIGHLIGHTS - December 2017 

The session continues discussing the reports and overtures to General Assembly regarding human sexuality.  Session is preparing its initial response to the denominational discussion taking place so far.  Anyone is free to contact Rev. Mike or one of the session elders to ask questions, or to let us know your view on same-sex marriage and ordination.  Elders on Session are:  Judi Aitken, Ellen MacDonald-Beacock, Kevin Capeling, Mike Currie, Sue Easun, Joan Fletcher (Clerk of Session), Ed McLachlin, Barb Sargent, and Jean Zimmer. 

Plans for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity continue.  It will take place Jan 22-26, 2017, with a concluding service on Sunday, Jan 28 at 2:00 p.m. (More information will follow in the new year.)

The Mission Team has designated the Kenora Fellowship Centre as our mission project for the next few months.  The Kenora Fellowship Centre provides sanctuary and hospitality for those marginalized and alienated by poverty and addiction. The Centre is also known as Anamiewigummig, which means House of Prayer in Ojibway. It operates as a drop-in centre and offers basic essential services such as food, shelter, showers, clothing, laundry, transportation and various other kinds of support. (More information will follow in the new year.)

The P&F Team is continuing work on assessing whether or not there is any damage to the foundation following the flood in the lower hall and kitchen in December 2017.

 

Policies drafted by the HR Team were approved by session.  We thank the HR Team for its hard work and diligence.

 

The Music and Worship Team will begin a search for a Music Director and Organist in January. This process will take some time, and we thank you for your patience in this matter.
