    • Online Worship for August 22: We will be back to our usual 10:30am worship time for what will (hopefully) be our last online only Sunday. This will be a special joint service with Knox Presbyterian Church in Waterdown and Family Church of Heritage Green. Worship will be led by myself, Rev. Grant Vissers, and Rev. Alex Douglas and feature music from all three churches. With our churches still worshipping online only it seemed like a great opportunity to work together as we get ready to return to in-person services.
    • Update on Reopening St. Andrew’s: We will be returning to in-person worship on Sunday August 22 as planned. The Reopening Team has reviewed the public health situation and feels that we are safe to reopen. Session will meet this coming Tuesday August 10 to approve health and safety procedures for our in-person services. Expect full details by next Thursday.
    • Summer Mission Focus: This summer the Mission Team is encouraging our St. Andrew’s Church Family to support the Kenora Fellowship Centre. The Centre is a ministry of the Presbyterian Church in Canada (PCC) that supports Indigenous people in the Kenora area, which was home to one of the two Residential Schools operated by the PCC after 1925. Ministries like the Kenora Fellowship Centre are part of our commitment to Reconciliation and repairing the harm done by the Residential Schools.
