There are a few spaces left if you would like to attend the third and final Vision workshop which will be held Sunday, July 15, after church from 11:45-1:15 (lunch to be provided). This workshop will build on the input provided at the previous vision workshops with a stronger focus on dreams for the future. The information people share will help form the basis for staff, council and committee planning for 2018-19 programs and the stewardship campaign in the fall.
The Refugee Support team is excited to announce that our Palestinian family was given Protected Persons Status by the Immigration Review Board on Tuesday July 10. The Hearing Officer made the decision based on evidence they provided that their lives would be in danger if they returned to their home country. The decision puts an end to months of worry and doubt and is the first step towards them becoming Permanent Residents.
