February 12, 2017 update

Good Morning – there are 4 brief Board bits this morning.

Two (2) new Suggestion Boxes have now been installed for your use, one in the access and one in the side foyer.  This is another way to submit your comments and ideas to the Board.

Second, we understand the angst raised over the idea of rearranging the furniture, and specifically removing a pew or two for alternative space during lent. This decision is not fait accompli.  The Worship committee is meeting at 10 am Friday morning, Feb 17 and anyone is welcome to attend.  This subject is also on the agenda for the joint leadership meeting on Tuesday Feb 21.

The Steering Committee reports that Colliers is providing weekly updates concerning their listing of 74 Frederick St.  Our agent Karl Innanen reports to the Chair of the Steering Committee that there have been a number of good conversations with developers and feels there are two that are quite interested. Stay tuned.

Lastly we want to remind everyone of the next congregation conversation with Betty Pries on Sun Mar 5. ‎ Betty’s agenda will focus us on Values, Identity, Purpose (VIP) as we work to answer the WHY question… why are we doing this?  Betty’s surveys and interviews in November indicated that we need to get to the root of this question.  This gathering will include a light lunch and we are looking for some assistance with sandwiches and squares. Please contact Barb Hill (519 7571 9913 brutherford@sympatico.ca)   if you would like to help.
