Thank you to everyone who stayed after church on Sunday and participated in our Annual General Meeting.  The pot luck lunch that preceded it was delicious!  There is always such a great variety of offerings, and the desserts were amazing.  And thank you for bringing your own plates and cutlery.  This certainly helped out the people who are normally stuck in the kitchen cleaning up, and allowed them to participate fully in the discussion.

Attached to this note is the budget that was approved at the meeting.  This includes the cost of moving Rev. Keith to 30 hours per week.  The vote was overwhelmingly in favour of this motion, and Waterloo Presbytery has been notified of the change to Rev. Keith’s call.  The onus is now on us to support this budget.  My sincere thanks to those of you who have already spoken to Stephanie about increasing your givings.  As I mentioned on Sunday, Randy and I will be working very hard to increase the fundraising revenues by at least 8% to help support this change.  We are at an exciting time.  There are a wealth of good ideas that have been suggested, and we now have the stability to work towards becoming really relevant to our community.

Sandy and Wilma will be selling Reid’s Easter chocolate again on Sunday, for pick up on Palm Sunday.  This is a good opportunity to support our Sunday School, enjoy some wonderful chocolate, and not have to fight the crowds in the store.

Michelle Hogan is looking for someone(s) to welcome people to the sanctuary on Saturday mornings for the months of May and June while she is travelling the Camino de Santiago.  Last Saturday, 17 people visited the sanctuary.  There has been considerable spin-off from this initiative including new people at church and weddings being booked.  No special knowledge is required, but Michelle will give you an overview of what information she shares and what hours that she is there.  If you are able to help with this, please contact Michelle at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Last week I attended a workshop on social isolation, a problem that has become pervasive in our modern world.  This issue not only affects seniors living alone in their homes, but youth and young adults as well.  You can have hundreds of ‘friends’ on Facebook, but never speak to a live person from one day to the next.  I would like us to think about how we might help to address this growing concern.
