Thank You!

First of all — Thank you! 
 
June 10 was a great day. To participate in the Baptism of 18 individuals and to see four new members affirm their discipleship was an exciting privilege. A heartfelt thank you to all who served on this special day. 
 
Also, as we near the end of the academic year, we want to take a moment to thank God for all of you who have served in various capacities at the church and in our community. Thank you for serving with us to build His kingdom ministry.
 
This extends from Music for Health that reaches seniors, to Little Sunbeams Parents and Tots group volunteers that reach our youngest ones. We are grateful to those who are visible upfront on a Sunday praying, reading, and serving communion and to the many greeters who welcome everyone in the name of Jesus. Our thanks go to the over fifty weekly volunteers who bless the youngest in our midst through Children’s and Youth ministries. For the faithfulness of our counters and the Chancel Guild who serve behind-the-scenes every weekend, we are very thankful. We give thanks for our musicians who offer their gifts to lead and support our musical worship. From serving coffee to our cookie ministry, we are grateful for the hospitality extended to all by so many. 
 
Thank you!
 
During the summer, we of course don’t shut our doors. We will have a full range of ongoing ministries as well as the Toronto City Mission summer day camp, running throughout the summer. This fall will be another great season as we seek to follow Jesus together. We will have our Annual General Meeting on October 21 where we will focus on our ministries and the next steps arising from our ongoing, successful capital campaign—Above and Beyond. This includes plans for implementing MAP (Ministry Apprenticeship Program) and the next steps in refurbishing the worship space.
 
We are Church, because you are the Church. Your care for one another and hospitality to strangers makes St. Paul’s who and what we are. Thank you!
