1. Church Reopening
After considering the reopening guidelines from the Ontario and Toronto Governments, the best practices of other churches, the survey results from our church family, input from the pastors and vice-chairs of each ministry committee, the Elder Board resolved for the church building to remain closed for in person services for the month of July even though the government allows in person worship of up to 30% capacity.
The Board of Elders will continue to monitor on a monthly basis in order to determine the exact reopening date. Please join us in prayer and in renewing your commitment to serving your Jaffray church family.
Praise the Lord! At the Annual General Meeting last Sunday, we elected Alan Leung and Margaret Pak as members of the Nominating Committee for Elders of 2021/22. Florence Shiu was appointed as our church internal auditor. Please remember them in prayer.
