With much regret, Brother Selwyn Luk has resigned from the Administrator position in September, effective October 15. Selwyn has served in our Church at different capacities since 2010, with the last 4 years as a full-time staff member. His faithful and diligent service in all these years will certainly be missed. We are confident that he will continue his fruitful service in his next assignment of God’s kingdom.
Adult Fellowships: We will be launching two new adult fellowships, one for those under 40 and one for those over 40, to fit in between Daniel and Cornelius Fellowships. Anyone who is interested in either fellowship can join us at our informational meeting on Wed, Oct. 21, at 7-9 pm. The Zoom link is: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85848024955
Due to the current pandemic emergent condition as declared by the government of B.C., our in-person election process has to be suspended. The Board has decided to use the mail-in voting process to ensure that all members can vote in closed ballots. A voting package will be sent out to each member of the Church by mail on October 19. Members will be requested to return the closed ballots to the Church by mail (pre-paid return envelops will be provided as part of the voting package), and all ballots must be received by Nov 6 to be valid. As well, to accommodate this mailing process, the AGM for 2020 will be held on Nov 8 as an online information meeting. Members are requested to provide mailing address updates for Church’s record as soon as possible by phone or email. Please click here for a video instruction about how to vote: https://youtu.be/mWCLkwW2tjA. The 2020 nominees are as follows:
