EVERY SUNDAY: Online service Live at 10am on Facebook Halifax Lutheran Church
ACM is scheduled for Sun. Feb.6, 2022!
Because of the constraints on gatherings imposed by the pandemic, we are once again moving to an email/video format for this year’s meeting. Last year's meeting, in this format, was well received and there was high participation.
Council asks that all church members take the time to absorb the reports and presentations and vote via email to enable us to continue Resurrection Lutheran’s mission of serving Christ, one another and the broader community.
Here’s the timeline we’re looking at:
Feb. 4: Annual meeting financial and other reports to be sent out via email. If you don’t have access to an email account, please contact Pastor Kimber at 902-223-0220.
Feb. 6: Motions under consideration to be sent out via email along with a link to an informational YouTube video from Pastor Kimber, our treasurer, Terry Norman, and council president, Claire McIlveen.
Feb. 7: Beginning at 6:30 p.m., an open meeting with council and church members via Zoom (requires a computer or cellphone) for questions and/or discussion. Questions can also be sent via email on this day.
Feb. 8 and 9: Church members are asked to vote, via return email, for or against motions “on the floor.”
The votes will be counted on Feb. 10 and the result of the vote will be emailed to members on Feb. 11.
Members, thank you for taking part! Thank you for your continued support of the congregation's mission to be a part of what God is doing in the world.
NOTE - for the ACM we will be using the email: email@example.com
If you are unsure if you are an official member or would like to become a member of the congregation, please send and email to the church. Official membership allows a person to vote and to hold positions on church council.
Council positions -
Council is always seeking members who are interested in participating in the monthly duties and leadership needs of the congregation. All members are welcome to offer to sit on church council. It is a the ACM that new council members are officially elected to serve. If you are interested in serving in this way, please send an email to the church.
* health directives remain the same
* Hybrid means INPERSON and ONLINE simultaneously
COMMUNION - 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month. For those of you participating online from your homes please watch this invitation to Communion.
Church council has been meeting monthly and continues to keep up to date on provincial and synodical restrictions and protocols. Leadership remains committed to flexibility as circumstances change. There is a communal understanding that congregation members have each changed over the past years. Some of us look older, have had significant health issues, are grieving, grown in faith, have a different outlook on life...
Patience and kindness are asked of everyone.
Moving forward everything will not start all at once. Groups like Sunday School will begin in time.
* PASTORAL VISITS - one on one visits for pastoral care and spiritual direction can be arranged as walk-talk visits or masked in the church hall.
NOTE - Pr. Kimber is double vaccinated and while rapid tests are available is periodically tested. She continues to wear her mask when visiting, so as not to transfer germs from one place to another.
Peace, hugs, and Son-shine,
