What a wonderful time we had at our family Christmas dinner on Sunday evening.  We had 124 adults and 21 children in attendance to enjoy a delicious turkey dinner, carol singing, and a visit from Santa.  My sincere thanks to everyone who helped to make this a success.  It was great to reconnect with each other, and to see extended families enjoying their time together.  Through good management, or perhaps just luckJ, we have enough turkey left over to make turkey meat pies in January.

hristmas is now less than one week away.  I hope that each of you  has an opportunity to enjoy this special time of year with family and friends.  If you are at the market on Saturday morning, stop in to listen to Rick play seasonal favourites in the sanctuary.  And please plan on attending our Christmas Sunday morning service at 10:30 a.m. on the 24th, and our annual Christmas Eve candlelight service at 7:00 p.m.  I have it on good authority that there might be some special music Sunday night, and it is a meaningful way to ease into the usual busyness of Christmas Day.

As Wilma mentioned last Sunday morning, she and Sandy are looking for some helpers for the church school and nursery in the New Year.  This is an important part of our weekly service and outreach to young families.  You do not need any experience to help, nor will you be required to assist every Sunday.  If you feel that you could help out, please speak to Wilma or Sandy, or send a note to the church office and it will be passed along.  We keep saying that we would like more young people and young families, so this is a golden opportunity for us to make good on that claim.

It is hard to believe that we are nearing the end of another year.  It has been a very busy one at Wesley, and has brought several positive changes, including welcoming Rev. Keith and his family.  We owe a great deal of thanks to our hardworking church staff who keep everything flowing so smoothly from one week to the next.  Our church has never been busier, with many different groups and agencies calling it home.   I am also incredibly grateful to the legions of volunteers who so faithfully work to support the life and work of this congregation.

I am filled with optimism and excitement about the potential for 2018, and hope that you are too.  We have much to offer each other, our community, and the world.  I feel truly blessed to be a part of it.

With hope, peace, joy and love, 

Anne Tinker
