Volunteer training day for helpers. Youth Director Nathan Cherry is planning to hold a training day for those currently helping with or wanting to get involved in our Sunday School program or youth group.

Mission Update: Equipping church leaders. Having a well-educated, well-prepared clergy is one of the commitments of The Presbyterian Church in Canada. Presbyterians Sharing supports three Presbyterian Colleges in Canada: Knox College in Toronto, St. Andrew’s Hall/Vancouver School of Theology in Vancouver, and Presbyterian College in Montreal. These colleges equip and nurture future church leaders who will in turn equip and nurture the people of God to witness faithfully in the world. They provide a strong theological foundation, build relationships of trust and respect, and prepare students for ministry in The Presbyterian Church in Canada. Let us pray for our theological students as they work to become faithful leaders in our churches and for the staff who inspire and educate them.
