Thanks Ken!

Today we bid farewell to Ken DeLisle, who has been serving as our Gap minister through the fall. We’re grateful to Ken for his ministry with us, and wish him all the best in his retirement. After the service today, the Westminster family is invited to the Fellowship Hall to enjoy some treats as we wish Ken “bon voyage.”

Condolences

We extend our condolences to Charles Huband and family on the recent passing of his brother, Rolph Huband. The memorial service was held this past Friday in Oakville, Ontario.
