Johnstown, Ontario The Presbytery of Seaway-Glengarry
With Rev Bruce Kemps’s coming retirement, the Presbytery has appointed Rev. Samer Kandaloft as the Interim Moderator for our 3 point charge. We welcome Rev. Kandaloft and look forward to working with him.
The Presbytery of Seaway-Glengarry has decided to sponsor a refugee family. To that end a Refugee sponsorship committee has been formed. They have asked each pastoral charge to name a representative. Garnet Thompson from Morewood has agreed to be our representative. The cost to sponsor a family is approximately $30,000. Support for the programme will be by freewill donations through our local churches to the Presbytery. Our refugee family has arrived and is thriving in Kemptville. This venture was very successfull, and as a Presbytery, we have agreed to support another refugee; freewill donations are ongoing.
