    • Study Leave & Vacation: I will be away until November 2. If you are in need of pastoral care, please call or email Rev. John Hibbs (905-627-9080 or jayhibbs@cogeco.ca).
    • Online Worship: Worship on Sunday November 1 will be led by the Rev. Todd Nelson. Todd is a friend and colleague of mine who was most recently the minister of Knox Presbyterian Church in Acton. The Home Worship Service will premier at 10:30am on Sunday as usual.
    • Zoom Communion: Sunday November 8 will be a Zoom Communion service, with virtual coffee hour to follow. Be sure to remember your grape juice and bread. If you aren’t able to join us live on Sunday morning a recording of the service will be available Sunday afternoon.
    • Update on In-Person Worship: The Reopening Taskforce met this week, and our assessment is that the public health situation is such that we must continue to postpone the resumption of in-person worship services. At this time, we cannot project when in-person services will resume. The Taskforce will meet in the coming week to reassess the situation, and Session will provide an update after our next meeting on Tuesday November 3.
