CREC Advent & Christmas Readings

Former CREC Council Moderator Randy Booth has coordinated a compilation of readings and devotions for the season of Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. A broad swath of ministers and leaders across the CREC participated by submitting devotionals for a given day. (Our own Tim Gallant provided the brief devotion for the Eleventh Day of Christmas, January 4. You'll find it on page 46.)

October 27 Council Meeting Summary

Council met, October 27, 2008. All council members were present. Here are a few high points:

  1. Mr Soles reported on the recent presbytery meetings which he attended. Due to realignment, we are now in a new presbytery (Knox), along with churches in Idaho, eastern Oregon, and eastern Washington. Our new sister congregation in Fort St John was also admitted as a candidate church.
  2. Council noted that we received only one volunteer to serve on a potential Christian School viability committee. Unless we receive a minimum of two more volunteers by next Sunday, we will table the matter for the time being.
  3. Various matters pertaining to our handling of Lord's Supper distribution and offering reception were discussed. It was decided to incorporate other men to assist in these aspects of service.
  4. Council discussed ways of adding further singing instruction (especially of the Psalms).
  5. Christmas dinner will take place Friday, December 5. This was the only available Friday or Saturday evening prior to Christmas. There is also an ongoing effort to invite international students attending the Grande Prairie Regional College to share this meal with us.
  6. Council discussed matters relating to mission and evangelism support. We will need to revisit how our support will be distributed.
  7. Mr Plante was reinstated as chairman of council (from which he had been on sabbatical). Mr Callahan returns to vice-chair.
