As I mentioned at the last Presbytery meeting – here is the address for our Presbytery Facebook Page:
Please share it with Presbytery members. You do not need to be a member of Facebook to view this page on the internet – just click above link or copy and paste the above address into your internet window and it should appear– hopefully. If there is a problem with it, please let me know. Presbyters are encouraged to share activities and events that they would like others to know about. It would also be great to receive photos of the church buildings, congregations, and so on, that could be used as profile or timeline photos. You can share them to the page or email them to me at email@example.com
Thanks and blessings, Beth

Calvin Presbyterian Church is hosting the PCC Atlantic Synod meeting October 16-18/2017 to which many elders and clergy from Atlantic Canada attend. Those from out of town may stay at hotels/motels or some may choose to stay with billets. Calvin has some volunteers willing to host billets, but we may need more. We will know the # needed by the end of September. Billets would need to stay at a home overnight Monday and Tuesday and need a light breakfast on Tuesday and Wednesday morning. Other meals are provided. Most will have their own transportation, but some may need to be transported to Calvin Tuesday and Wednesday morning- we would try to billet them as close to Calvin as possible. They would need to be picked up or met on Monday evening after the opening ceremony – between 9 and 10 pm. If anyone would be willing to help us out or have any questions, please contact Lilla Tanner at email@example.com or by phone -902-869-0105.
Thanks in advance for your consideration.
