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. Thank you.

Minister’s Moving Fund

You will find an envelope included in this week’s bulletin, giving you an opportunity to offset the moving expenses for Rev Jon and Cathy Van Den Berg, from Fingal, Ontario to our Beautiful City.
It is anticipated that the moving costs will amount to approximately $8,000.00, with the distance between these two locations being 1600 kilometres. This expense was not included in the Annual Budget, as it could not be projected in February exactly when the vacancy would be filled.
You will see a large map at the back of the Church, highlighting the route between the two communities, and indicating how many kilometres are already covered. Each kilometre will cost $5.00, and we have $720.00 already in the Moving Fund.
A Committee has been struck to undertake this endeavour, chaired by Stephen MacKay.

You are encouraged to use the enclosed envelope, to help offset the expected moving costs.
