Don Ayre Speaks About Jean
Saturday, September 22 at 11 a.m., in the sanctuary
On Saturday, September 22 at 11 am, Don Ayre will speak in the sanctuary about life with his beloved wife Jean and their family. Jean wanted to help others enjoy and be grateful for life in the face of death by becoming more familiar with the notion of dying with dignity.
In February of 2017, Jean applied for medical assistance in dying and qualified due to a failing heart that had made a hip operation impossible. Don has many fascinating stories to share about their life together; you won't want to miss this event. Refreshments to follow.
Copies of Don's book 'The Power of Love's Connectivity' (A Case Study of Medical Assistance in Dying) will be available to peruse and order if you wish ($25.00 at time of order. A Kindle version and hard copies are also available through amazon.com.
September 23: Take Off Your Bib and Put On Your Apron
Worship Leader: Rev. Meghann Robern
Worship Coordinator: Tanya Brothers
People often says that church is one of the places they go to “be fed.” What often gets forgotten is that it is the people who also have to do the feeding of each other, and when we are all serving, everyone can get fed. Join us for this exploration of how we can discern our gifts by practicing them with each other in our congregational community. During this worship service we will also covenant with our Lifespan Faith Development facilitators and teachers. Please stay afterward to explore our Shared Ministry Fair, where committees and teams within the congregation will have tables out to answer your questions about what they do.
October 3 at 7:00 p.m. at the church
The Pastoral Care Team is hosting a Grief Circle on Wednesday, October 3 from 7:00-9:00 pm.
It will be a time to share, to listen to others and ourselves and to support each other in our healing journey. If you are grieving a loss of any kind, you are welcome here!
If you would like more information or are planning on coming please contact Bonnie Thiessen.
From the Minister's Study September 2018
Welcome, my beloveds, to year two of our shared ministry!
What is exactly is shared ministry, you may be asking yourself? It is one of the fundamentals at the heart of our congregational structure -- that we are a community that is self-governed and self-sustained. You called me to be your minister so we could, in partnership, fulfill that promise offered by a group of people who freely choose to be together: to share values, to share support, and to create something that changes lives.
