2020 has been an interesting year! Challenging times often make people reflect on the importance of the people in their lives and the gratitude for those who helped them get through in the year.
We give thanks to all the members, lay leaders, and ministry personnel in the Canadian Shield Regional Council. We are grateful for all you do to care for one another in love – whether it is within a community of faith, a cluster ministry or a network ministry – your commitment, dedication and determination to be a ‘community’ is what we do as God’s beloved. We give thanks for each and every one of you and your ministry in this time. We pray that all may experience God’s abundant life and JOY this Christmas.
The Canadian Shield Regional Council offices will be closed from December 24, 2020 to January 3, 2021.
If there is an emergency over the Christmas break, please call 705-474-3350 ext. 1 or 833-236-0281 ext. 1 and leave a message. This phone will be checked regularily and urgent calls will be addressed.
The Canadian Shield Regional Council, the Executive, and the Staff would like to wish you the gift of faith, the blessing of hope, and the peace of God’s love this Christmas. May your heart be light and your days be merry and bright this holiday season.
Peace of Christ to you!
