JUNE OFFICE HOURS
This week we have been celebrating Peter Kiteley’s well-deserved retirement as the Church’s Office Administrator and Building Co-ordinator. But, when someone is as integral to the community as Peter is, it is not an easy thing just to let them leave. While the search team continues to interview for our new Office and Building Administrator, you may notice some changes around EMUC.
Starting on June 3, there will be new office hours and some familiar people covering the office.
Until further notice, the
office will be open from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday.
June 3 Peter Kiteley
June 4-7 Sylvia Arnold
June 10 Peter
June 11-13 Sylvia
June 14 Peter
June 17 Peter
June 21 Peter
June 24-27 Peter
The July schedule will be posted later.
The garden under the front sign of the church has proven to be a challenge to maintain over the last few years. It needs to be redesigned to include more low maintenance plants.
If interested in helping with strategy, design, redeploying plants, etc. please contact Mary Anna, by email please -

If so, place it in the box at the back of the sanctuary. Every small amount helps. Thank-you. Linda Leeder
