Welcome Summer

As the summer season has arrived, I am reminded that “there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” (Solomon)

While he apparently didn’t have summer vacation time in mind we can express our appreciation for this season as a time for rest, relaxation, physical and spiritual renewal and a timely break from the routines of the rest of the year.

We thank-you for your support for the ministry and partners of TBM over the past year. The Pastor Clusters continue to be received well and will be continuing again in the Fall. Check the email from your coordinator for the dates, times, and locations.

We welcome Craig Rumble and Matt Samson who have agreed to be the Coordinators for the NorthEast Cluster (the re-named Scarborough Cluster).

Another Joint Ordination Examination Council has been scheduled for Saturday, November 22. Mark this on your calendar and watch for further details.

We congratulate Lorne Park on the arrival of their new Pastor- Justin Joplin, who with his wife and 2 children under 5, is discovering the new church family, city and ministry opportunities. WELCOME….Justin and family.

At our recent Board meeting we were reminded that the givings from our churches is down from last year at this time. We all recognize that the summer months are often the lean time of the year so we ask that you pray about this need.

It is a joy to serve the Lord and the TBM family of churches. I will be on leave for July and August but can respond to emails and phone calls if the need arises.

Serving together…
