CY2018 will offer three sensational tracks that it has become known for:

  1. Youth Track – programming designed for high-school students (graduated Grade 9), celebrating their unique place as youth in our church and providing them with a landmark event in their faith journey.
  2. Discipleship Track – an opportunity for young adults (ages 19 - 25) to be themselves, discern their gifts and be empowered to be effective servants and leaders.
  3. Youth Ministry Training Track – youth leaders (ages 18+) – practical, comprehensive youth ministry training with superb experts in the field.

Financial Stewardship
The Finance and Stewardship (F&S) Ministry is preparing a series of bulletin inserts for coming months to cover various topics under the heading of ‘Financial Stewardship’. In time, the topics to be covered will be expanded to include other elements of stewardship, particularly time and talent.

The practice of good stewardship helps individuals and congregations discern God's mission and discover how they can use their resources of Time... Abilities… Money... to participate in that mission.

With the recent distribution of fresh church envelopes for 2018 and the work well underway in preparing the operating budget for 2018, this initial bulletin insert is directed to one aspect of financial stewardship, specifically where do your offerings go [as designated on the General line of the envelope] combined with property rentals and the grant from the growth fund. Offerings represent around 60% of our total operating income.

Based on the draft operating budget for 2018 (% age)


The ‘F&S Ministry’ would welcome comments and queries from the congregation and suggestions as to topics of interest to be covered in future inserts. Thank you for your faithful financial stewardship.

Russ McKay, Convener/Treasurer
