THANK YOU TO ALL FOR A WONDERFUL HOLY WEEK

The clergy and staff would like to say thank you to all those who gave of their time and talent to make our Holy Week and Easter Sunday services such a blessing. Thank you to Paul and Niveen for the many bulletins they prepared for us. Thank you to Matthew, our Choir Director & Organist, and the members of our choir for their amazing gift of music. Thank you to all those who assisted with the liturgy, as crucifers, subdeacons, chalice bearers, readers, greeters, sides people, the Chancel Guild and flower arrangers. Thank you to those who provided hospitality and refreshments: Jayne and her team on Thursday night, Alison and Andrew on Good Friday, William, Genevieve & Elsa on Saturday, and Deborah and her team on Sunday! You are a gift to CCDP and we are thankful!


THANK YOU TO ALISON

Over the last three months we have been blessed by a most wonderful and inspired Interim Director of Children & Youth Ministry here at CCDP: Alison Jurrinen. Alison, you walked into a completely new and mysterious role with passion and confidence. The children and youth adore you, and you have provided such a faithful and fun presence on our staff team. We are sorry that your role is coming to an end, at least for now! Please accept our thanks and gratitude for all the work you have done nurturing and discipling our children and youth. We wish you every blessing in your continued ministry, and hope that we will see you again very soon! Peace, love & hugs from all of us at CCDP!


MESSAGE FROM ALISON

By far the biggest event that is happening soon in PromiseLand and with YAL is this: the imminent return of Hilary Keachie! An airplane will very shortly be returning both Hilary and Emmett from the ancient city of Rome, and I, for one, am very much looking forward to seeing them again! This also means that this will be my last week here as interim director of Children's and Youth Ministry. I've enjoyed my time in PromiseLand and with YAL very much indeed - thank you for welcoming me into your congregation so warmly and unreservedly. So many of you have taken the time to encourage me, (often even indulging me in my oddball ideas), and I have appreciated that very much. You certainly know how to make a person feel welcome! But, since you've all been so charming, I am fully planning on visiting, so this is far from a final good-bye. Specifically - there's a very good chance (like, 99%) I'll be at VBS this summer, so I am encouraging you all to come. And one more thing: please nobody mention to Hilary how many different sorts of dessert items got mashed into that carpet downstairs.

Saturday April 29 / 9:30am

It's spring and things are finally turning green! Please join us for a Grounds Clean-up Day on Saturday April 29 at 9:30 am. Bring your rake, a shovel, or just bring yourselves.
