Survey: How Would You Like to Communicate with Your Church?
Kootenay Presbytery received a grant for a student employee to assess the communication processes within the Presbytery.  The student has prepared a short survey to help her better understand how you prefer to communicate.  The survey is available on-line.  Please take a moment to complete this important survey.

Volunteers Needed to Keep Our Church Building Clean when John’s on holidays this summer
We hope there are enough custodial volunteers available so we can keep our costs down while John is away from July 23 – August 6 and August 14 – September 2.  We don’t expect anyone to take on the whole custodial job, but we’d appreciate it if you are interested in either:  keeping a washroom clean, vacuuming a room, mowing the boulevard, or getting the garbage ready for pick up.  If you’re able to help out or would like more information, please contact Lois in the church office. Thanks…


Interested in Making a Donation to Camp Koolaree?
If you are interested in helping out with the many expenses incurred in maintaining Camp Koolaree or would like to sponsor a young camper, donations are gratefully accepted.  Donations may be made via their website or you may make a donation via NUC, marking on your offering envelope or cheque’s memo line that the donation is for Camp Koolaree.

Musicians Wanted
