We have learned that Rev. Etienne is not expecting to be able to return to work in September, as we had all hoped. We pray for his return to health and strength, with the help of his doctors, as soon as possible.
We are pleased that Rev. Kevin Taylor has very kindly agreed to continue as our long term supply minister until such time as he is no longer needed. Our services in August will be jointly with Ryerson at Ryerson under the direction of their minister, Rev. Tim Graham.
In the meantime, Rev. Kevin will work part-time during the month of August, continuing office hours Monday to Thursday 9 to 12, and then full-time from August 26th on. He will work with our staff, our committees, and our Music ministry under Kerry and Frank, to continue offering us spiritual direction, worship experience, and care for our congregation. We are blessed with his willingness to continue serving Marshall Memorial as supply minister.
