  Join us for Coffee
 Wednesday, May 13 10 am MT

Dear friends,

It was good to meet with several of you earlier today for the retiree gathering. Thank you to Wilma Clark and Bob Mutlow for organizing.

You’re invited for a time of conversation with colleagues in Chinook Winds Region. This invitation is going out to Ministry Personnel and Retired Ministers in our Region.

During our conversations, you may also want to discuss church re-launching guidance plans that have been put forward to us.

Since we last met, the General Council office has released its Re-Opening Plan for Churches in three phases, all of which is dependent on local health authorities direction.  

Then yesterday, the Province of Alberta released a Re-launch Guidance for Places of Worship (PDF download) along with plans for businesses opening. Please note that that provincial document only goes into effect when the Province announces we are in Phase 1 of recovery. Also, please note that the document strongly recommends continuing alternative forms of gathering and that congregational singing is not allowed.

Bring along a cup of coffee or tea. We hope you can join us.  Please see how to connect below!
Please see sign in information below!

Look forward to seeing you on Thursday.

Treena Duncan, Executive Minister
Lee Spice, Pastoral Relations Minister

P.S. Adam Handley, the Office of Vocation's Program Coordinator for Ministry Personnel Vitality has asked us to pass on to you his latest letter of support and encouragement.
