This event is hosted by the Outreach Ministry Team and they request the presence of all the Council leaders (and any council members that would like to come), Committee and Ministry Team chairs for Calendar Fest.
What is Calendar Fest? This is the morning that all council and committee/team reps gather to populate the 2020 calendar with the activities/events that their group is planning for the coming year. This allows us to see what is happening in our church throughout the coming year. It is a time when groups can identify activities that they can work on together and use other leaders as sounding boards for new thoughts and ideas. Will every activity throughout the year be decided at this meeting? No, but it is certainly a good start to getting us thinking about the year!
Members of the Outreach team will provide us with some breakfast nibbles and drinks. It’s always easier to think after some nutritional/caffeine intake. If any members of the congregation are interested in this meeting, please come – everyone is welcome!
A service of song, silence and contemplation – January 26th @ 6pm
In January we are introducing a new 30-40 minute service once a month on a Sunday evening. This is a beautiful reflective service of music, scripture and prayer, which originated at the Taize Community in the Burgundy region of France. Our service will follow closely the original service (many of the hymns/chants we already sing in our services) with some minor adaptations. We will worship in quiet and candlelight.
The Taizé Community is an ecumenical Christian monastic fraternity in Taizé, Saône-et-Loire, Burgundy, France. It is composed of more than one hundred brothers, from Catholic and Protestant traditions, who originate from about thirty countries across the world. It was founded in 1940 by Brother Roger Schütz, a Reformed Protestant.
Join us as we begin a new year with Taize worship services. All are welcome!
