Bishop’s Notes – July 20, 2009

Dear Colleagues,

I hope you are enjoying your summer days.  I want to bless you with unbelievably short Bishop’s Notes today. There is only one announcement to make this week – Paul Millar has gone into transition from Arlington Woods FMC, effective at the end of September.

We have just sent out the information about the fall Ministers Conferences.  Please give that email your attention.

Have a great week serving Jesus.

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
