New director: Rev. Meridyth Robertson, of Trail, British Columbia, joined the board as of October 30, 2021. Her profile will appear in a future edition.
Let’s get together: Renewal Fellowship’s next annual meeting will take place on April 30, 2022. Location/method (online or in person) TBA.
Extraordinary support: Over the past 24 months, Renewal has been blessed with federal grants of $46,000 and two bequests totalling $100,000.
Generosity: We have been blessed with congregational gifts that have more than compensated for underruns in individual gifts and memberships.
Precarious existence: Renewal now has a cash reserve of about $91,000. Without the extraordinary support, we would be $55,000 in the red. Regular donations (our lifeblood) are not meeting our carefully managed expenses. Please consider how your congregation can support Renewal as a mission, and how you can support Renewal through regular giving or a bequest.
Prayer: We publish a new prayer 365 days a year in either print or email formats. Please share prayer requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Care: Executive Director Rev. Andy Cornell is always eager to bring words of prayer and encouragement to congregations and sessions in person or virtually. Contact him at email@example.com.
