We commemorated the first National Day of Truth and Reconciliaton with a ceremony in the church courtyard yesterday. We are grateful to Carolyn Klaassen, an Indigenous leader in our Synod for leading us in prayer and singing and drumming the honor song of Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc. We are also grateful that community members from the neighborhood were able to join us for this solemn occasion.
Here are some upcoming dates and events in October.
October 10 - Thanksgivng Sunday
We will celebrate with a service of Holy Communion and welcoming back our Choir!
October 17 - A Special Service of the Word at 2:00 PM with Guest Preacher Deacon Rennie Nahanee
October 23 - BC Synod Learning Day
The Synod is inviting all of us—not just pastors—to a Learning Day with Rev. Susan Beaumont who will help us be better prepared for that different, unknown future by teaching us how to deepen our discernment as we continue to walk through this present liminal season.
