The Session has determined that we need to seek two more elders. This process will begin in October. Every communicant member will receive a ballot in an envelope. You may return it to the church and deposit in the box provided or mail it to the church (attention: Jorris Zubatuk, Clerk of Session). You will be asked to mark your ballot with up to 5 choices listed as 1, 2, 3 etc. Voting will take place over a period of 3 weeks after which the elders will meet and review the results. All communicant members are eligible to be nominated.
Reverend Bruce Kemp will be available for pastoral emergencies.
