COMMITTEE REPORTS

(submitted for the June 2020 meeting)

...FROM FAITH DEVELOPMENT

EDUCATION SUB-DIVISION

 

  • Volunteers have continued to work tirelessly on-line and by ZOOM to ensure that all of our children and young people continue to be involved in both education and community on a weekly basis.

  • Chris Lindsay and Carol Boyd meet with the young adults by ZOOM every Saturday night and look forward to resuming face to face contact, God-wiling, in September.

  • Allyson Watson, Kathryn Skelly, Anne McPhail, Kes Sebborn work with the younger age groups by ZOOM and on-line on Sunday mornings—with lots of telephone contact in between.

  • The children themselves are leading by example by writing notes to ill or isolated FSA members weekly.

  • And the BONUS—Jane Dockrill has returned!!

 

 

WORSHIP SUB-DIVISION

  • The two Adult Bible Study groups ceased to meet at the outset of the pandemic but a short meditation is sent out each morning (Jo Ann).

  • Michelle and friends have created on-line Worship Services since mid-March and that will continue until June 28th—Michelle’s last day.

  • It had been the plan to have Michelle conduct Worship through July and then switch to on-line services from other UCC’s for the duration of the pandemic restrictions. That plan will not begin in July given Michelle’s earlier departure.  We have begun publishing in the e-mail blast weekly, suggested on-line services (test-driven by our members!!).

  • We are beginning to firm up guest preachers for the Fall with the gracious assistance of the Rev. Dr. David McKane and of Rev. Ann Corbett—during the duration of the upcoming Congregational review and subsequent Search process.

 

...FROM MEMBERSHIP & NURTURE

  • Our committee has not met in person or virtually although we keep in touch by telephone.

  • The Lay Visitation team and the Caring Callers have been asked to keep in close touch with their flock

  • On Tuesday June 9th Rev Dr. David McKane and Dr. JoAnn Silcox and Heather Locking-Cusolito met on the lawn of FSA to review the FSA Directory to ensure that the pastoral care needs of all our members were being adequately cared for.

  • We read with interest the proposal by the Trustees to honour Time and Talent contributions. Since Membership and Nurture is responsible for recognizing volunteers through Volunteer Appreciation Sunday and other avenues we look for ward to working together with Trustees on this project.

...FROM UCW

  • Glenda Robinson, Convenor for FSA's UCW Boutique Bazaar, reports that it is not likely that there will be an on-site Boutique Bazaar at the church in November 2020. Consideration is being given to holding a "virtual bazaar," and we will give an update as things progress.
