 Shall We Gather at the (Digital) River 
 A Virtual Town Hall Meeting
for Ministry Personnel and Regional Representatives
Thursday, May 14    3 pm MT 
PLEASE NOTE NEW TIME
Friends,

We hope you can join us for our Town Hall this Thursday at 3 pm.

Treena Duncan will make a presentation on re-opening that incorporates the principles and directions from the Alberta Government and the General Council Office. Coronavirus restrictions and social distancing are inevitably going to be part of our life for many months to come.

While this email is being sent to Regional Representatives, Ministry Personnel, and Retired Ministers, please feel free to share the meeting sign-in information with others  such as Board Chairs and Ministry & Personnel Committee members who may find the information provided in the gathering to be beneficial.

You may want to review the following two re-opening documents, if you haven't already done so.

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

On Monday, 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 which may vary from area to area. Also, please note that the document strongly recommends continuing alternative forms of gathering and that congregational singing is not allowed.

Mauricio Araujo's presentation on Zoom Security Best Practices and been re-recorded and is now available on the Chinook Winds YouTube Channel. Several people had requested a recording to pass on to others in your communities of faith and we hope this will be useful to you. 

          Please see Thursday's sign in information below!
 
Look forward to seeing you on Thursday.

Treena Duncan, Executive Minister
Lee Spice, Pastoral Relations Minister
