Whether you seek a few quiet moments of reflection and prayer or an active role in fellowship and mission, you will be warmly greeted. All are welcome!

As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.”
– John 20:21

What's Next?

 

The What’s Next Team has been overwhelmed by how many people responded to our invitation to think about our church’s future and to make suggestions on where we need to be going. Through surveys that were answered, focus groups attended and congregational workshops, we received hundreds of suggestions and over 1000 comments!  We want to thank everyone who took the time to participate in this phase of our initiative.

 

On September 11, the Session of our church approved a final report from the What’s Next Team. In it, we recommended that all the suggestions be sent to the committees and organizations responsible for that aspect of our congregation’s life in order that they can be considered carefully and, where appropriate, acted upon.  To receive a copy of the final report, please ask for one at the church office or click on the button below.

 

As well, we recommended that the search for a second minister begin and that the person be designated as an Associate Minister (for Bridge Building, Interconnectedness or a similar term). That person, along with other pastoral duties, would seek to enhance the connections between individuals and organizations within A&P as well as making new connections between our congregation and the surrounding community.

 

We are excited that we are beginning a new phase in our congregation’s life as we strengthen our own ministry as well as grow it as we seek to be faithful followers of Christ.

By Land, Sea, and Air

A Tribute to 27 Young Men of Our Congregation Who Fought in WWII

Last year, to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, our church published and distributed Lest We Forget – a remembrance of lives lost in this tragic war.  This year, on Remembrance Day Sunday, November 10, we plan to publish and distribute By Land, Sea and Air – a tribute to the 27 men of our congregation who died in World War II.  The title underlines the fact that this war was fought not so much by soldiers “in the trenches” but by all three armed services.  This book is a collection of stories about the young men of our congregation who died in tanks, on corvettes and in planes. By words and images, we have attempted to bring these brave men to life again – to share not only what they accomplished before and during the war, but their hopes for the future when the world would again be at peace.
