Giving Thanks

If you have been coming to Westminster for 23 years, you will have seen Roger Soens quietly sitting at the sound desk along the south wall of the sanctuary during Sunday services. He retired last week from his labour of love, just before the new simplified sound system was installed.

“Wouldn’t you know it,” he said with a smile.

Be sure to thank Roger for his faithful service to the congregation when you see him in the pews.

Two-Four-Six-Eight; who do we appreciate?

Sunday, June 5 will be an  opportunity to express thanks and appreciation to the people of this congregation — people who regularly offer their presence in worship, their smile, their voice; people who volunteer up front or behind the scenes; people who have made a difference to you; people you would miss if they weren’t among us; people you’d give a flower to if you had a chance. On June 5th you will have a chance to do just that.  Give it some thought.
