COMMITTEE REPORTS for the September Meeting of Council

 

WORSHIP

The Worship Committee met by Zoom on September 14th

  • NARTHEX CO-ORDINATION will aim at preserving social distancing even as we welcome persons to worship and at ensuring that all attendees are registered for notification purposes in the event of a Covid incident.

  • COMMUNION will rely on individual sealed cups/wafers available on entering the sanctuary to avoid the cross-communication of gathering at the front of the sanctuary.

  • SCRIPTURE READINGS: Joshua’s practice will be to include both an OT and a NT reading each week. He may invite another person to do one of those readings.

  • GUEST SPEAKERS:  Helen Keenlyside will give the address on Food Grains Sunday; Ann Corbet will be the guest preacher on Anniversary Sunday.

  • MUSIC: will continue under the stellar leadership of Paul Merritt and Vicky Meredith.

  • COVENANTING SERVICE: The Worship Committee will assist where needed in the Covenanting Service for Joshua on October 23. Other community clergy are being encouraged to take part.

  • PROUDFOOT LEGACY RECIPIENTS:  Five new leaves will be added to the Memorial Tree in the Atrium after the service on September 26th and the 45 new members of the Proudfoot Society will receive their certificates and be photographed after the service on October 31.

CHRISTIAN DEVELOPMENT

  • A youth retreat is occurring at Camp Kee-Mo-Kee September 17-19, 2021.  The theme is God’s Grace.  This is an opportunity for children and youth to reconnect.

  • Church school will be every Sunday except September 19, 2021, outside.

  • Bible studies will be starting up again during the week.

  • FSA/Metropolitan/Siloam will be putting a search committee together for the joint youth minister position by the end of September.
