Bishop’s Notes – August 24, 2009

Dear Colleagues,

 

My notes are brief this week. There is one announcement.  Phil Hamilton has been appointed as Assistant Pastor (Director of Youth/Family Ministry & Worship) at Asbury FMC, Perth, ON, effective August 21, 2009.

Please remember to get your registrations in for the fall Ministers Conferences.

Why such brief notes?  I’m home with the flu, but don’t worry, I’m going to make it!!

Blessings,

Bishop Keith

P.S.  Remember.  If you are wondering about something related to the FMCIC and its ministry, please send your question to ministrycentre{at}fmc-canada{dot}org.
