A Note from Rev. Wendy:

I am back from summer leave and am pleased to confirm that the Rev. Jon Van Den Berg’s call to Saint Andrew’s has been approved by his home Presbytery and he has formally accepted the call.  He will begin ministering at SAPC on September 15, with his first worship service planned for September 16.

I am not intending to call a session meeting in early September unless an urgent matter arises.  I’ve spoken with Rev. Van Den Berg and the next session meeting will likely be Monday October 1 at 7 p.m. (to be confirmed).  With regards to transition, the congregation or appropriate committees/individuals will be contacted and informed as needed.

I would also like to extend my appreciation to the congregation of Saint Andrew’s for the heartfelt support, generosity and hospitality you extended to both the friends and family of the late Constable Burns and Roy Melanson.  I am also grateful for the way you came together as a church family to comfort those mourning under challenging circumstances and tight timeframes.  Thank you.
