Aug 13, 2017 was the last service at First PC with Rev Mark Wolfe officiating. He has accepted a call to St Andrew’s in Stratford, Ontario. We sent him off in fine fashion but the goodbyes were tearful. We all wish him well and envy St Andrew’s their good fortune in having Mark as their new Shepherd.
A Search Committee has been struck and has completed the requisite Congregational Profile for approval by Session and the PCC. Apparently it often takes a year to fill a vacant pulpit but our congregation is strong and healthy and we are persevering in our usual good works and programs. We are also praying for God’s guidance during this difficult time in our congregation’s history. We are thankful for the ministers who have agreed to fill in as pulpit supply. We are also very grateful to Rev Barry Doner of Wasaga Beach Presbyterian Church who has agreed to be our Interim Moderator until we are blessed, once again, with our own minister.
