As you know, due to COVID-19, the WVSM services have been postponed for the foreseeable future.
 
Rev. Brent Woodard has planned ‘zoom’ services for Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday.  He has sent an invitation for tomorrow’s Palm Sunday service and next week will send an invitation for the Easter Sunday service. 
If you have not received an invitation but wish to join the ‘zoom’ service please send a message to bendina.miller@gmail.com.com and Bendina will be pleased to forward Brent’s invitation to you.

Keep Safe, Be Well


Dear friends of the Windermere Valley Shared Ministry:
 
     Please find attached a letter from Bishop Lynne, from the Diocese of Kootenay, suspending all public worship and all gatherings in our church buildings until at least the end of April. 
    So, our initial cancelling of Sunday services for two weeks has now been officially extended to six or seven weeks. 
     I believe I will begin my tenure as the minister (part-time) of the pastoral charge at the beginning of April. I’ve never served such an empty church! I will try to communicate with you using emails, maybe video, and on the phone. I guess I’ll do things I’ve never done before. Maybe we’ll have fun “together,” trying new things. 
     Sebastian is going to send out worship material via email, for the next two weeks. We appreciate his thoughtfulness and kind heart in wanting all of us to stay connected and have spiritual material to read. 
      Thank you for being a part of this church and for seeing the church through, through thick or thin. For some reason I want to say, it’s not quantity that matters, but quality. May the right word come, at the right time and in the right way, to help us on our journey, and to help us help others on the Way. 
 
Peace and Presence to us all, Brent

Project: Prayer Care

A project in which you will have an individual who will include you in their daily prayers. It is a “secret” prayer partner.    Prayer is a part of our day.  A good synonym I learned years ago was that … Continue reading
