             SESSION HIGHLIGHTS - June 2018 

Session approved the Human Resources policy on Health and Safety.  Policy recommendations will be put in place, and all necessary training will begin in the fall.  The session thanks Linda Swain and her dedicated team for their hard work in producing these policy documents.

The Breakfast program continues, and new ways are being found to increase our volunteer base and efficiency.   We are in the process of assigning co-leaders for each serving team.

Ed McLachlin (with input from Adam Shaw) will be working on finding a Clavinova to replace the one in the sanctuary.  More information will follow in September on how to donate toward this important purchase.

A deserving homeowner on Houston street has been chosen for this year’s Backyard Mission.  We thank Jay Jamieson for overseeing the planning and execution of this project.  A sign-up sheet is available in the Meeting Room, and will be available in the sanctuary during worship.

Rev. Mike and Barb Sargent attended the PCC’s General Assembly in Waterloo.  Mike will write a brief report on where the issue of inclusion stands.  The report will be printed in the bulletin.

Rev. Mike updated the session on the increasing workload stemming from issues in our Presbytery.  Many of our churches in our Presbytery are without full-time ministers, and so requiring oversight from ordained ministers.   As mentioned previously, Mike is now the Interim Moderator for both Knox Presbyterian Church in Wallaceburg, and St. James, Presbyterian Church in Chatham.   Mike is now responsible for leading those sessions, as well as the one here at FPC.
