Change in Sunday Services re COVID

As you may know, Rev. Harry and some other members of the pastoral charge have contracted COVID. For now, Sunday services are temporarily cancelled at Lochlin UC and Ingoldsby UC. Harry will broadcast the Sunday service on YouTube from his office at Haliburton UC at the usual time of 11:15 a.m. (11 a.m. start for set-up). Those who wish to watch the 11:15 a.m. service in person at the church are welcome but they must do so by watching it on the TV in the sanctuary. Services will continue to be online-only until Harry has passed his quarantine period. Please keep all those affected by this round of COVID in your prayers.

Have a computer? Love numbers? Want to work from home on your own schedule 3-4 hours per week? Know someone who does? The Haliburton UC treasurer position may be the answer. The current treasuer is retiring after many years of service and will be happy to train the new person. Software and compensation will also be provided.
