 PCC MISSION MOMENTS World Environment Day (June 5)Presbyterian World Service & Development is committed to environmental stewardship and creation care. Deforestation caused by human activity or climate change affects the lives and livelihoods of millions of people living in poverty. In Haiti, widespread deforestation has eroded crop-producing soil and led to increased flooding and landslides, sustaining cycles of hunger and poverty. PWS&D is supporting partners at Canadian Foodgrains Bank to replant forest areas and improve food security by equipping farmers to plant tree nurseries, protect soil and store seeds. A healthy, vibrant creation is vital for the well-being of families throughout our global village, as they harvest food, earn livelihoods and embrace futures of hope.PWS&D encourages environmental stewardship

PCC MISSION MOMENTS With glad and generous hearts                 The theme of this year’s General Assembly is With Glad and Generous Hearts. This past year, a design team was established to work with the General Assembly Office to plan the 2018 event. Team member the Rev. Dr. Patricia Dutcher-Walls shares that “sitting through an Assembly can be both inspiring and tiring,” so the team “imagined ways to help accomplish the business of the Assembly, while creating more spaciousness of timing and a more humane schedule.” This includes time for mini-breaks, table discussion groups, and sessions that include visuals and sound to appeal to different learning modes. A consensus decision-making model will create a more inclusive process of discernment. When Presbyterians gather together with glad and generous hearts, much can be accomplished!                                                                                           Presbyterians Sharing brings Presbyterians together at General Assembly

LAY LEADERSHIP EDUCATION OPPORTUNITYWould you like to take a summer school course at Vancouver School of Theology (VST) to enhance your lay leadership skills? Sound interesting? Take a look at the Summer School offerings on the VST website and if you see a course you are interested in talk to your pastor about funding opportunities to help pay for your course.

 TREASURER’S REPORT REGARDING LPC’S INVESTMENT IN THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH CONSOLIDATED FUNDWe (LPC) withdrew $3,000 (from the PC Consolidated Fund) for the first quarter 2018 while dividends & interest provided $2,425 into the account.  The dividends and interest are 2 parts of the return to the fund.  Capital gains (or loss) are the third part but it is not determined until year end.  Historically the fund provides a capital gain which more than covers our withdrawals and also increases the fund greater than inflation, as required by Presbytery guidelines. There is a cap on how much we can withdraw so likely next year we will start looking to general offerings/revenue to make up the difference between what we can withdraw from the Manse Fund and the required Housing Allowance. As of December 31, 2017 LPC had $428,958 invested in the PC Consolidated Fund. The full 2017 PC Consolidated fund report to LPC is available from Clara, upon request.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS Enjoying school and pursuing dreams Zindaba’s story is not uncommon in many Malawian communities—children want to go to school but their families can’t afford the fees. Zindaba feels very fortunate that her aunt paid for her first two years at school, a time the girl recalls with great joy. “The teachers were good and encouraged us a lot,” she shares. Unfortunately, the expense became too great a struggle for her aunt. When Zindaba had to drop out, she never imagined she’d make it to university, but education support from PWS&D helped Zindaba pay her school fees and gave her support to pursue her dreams. Today, proudly displaying her university class scores, a smiling Zindaba talks about training to be an accountant.

A trust deed sets out the rules governing the trustees of the congregation who hold the property of the congregation in trust for the sole use and benefit of the congregation. Trustees shall have and only have the power and authority to execute documents as approved by the congregation and shall be no more and no less than a pen in the hand of the congregation. Copies of the proposed trust deed for LPC are available at the back of the church or you may request a digital version by contacting the church office. The proposed Trust Deed details the responsibilities of LPC’s trustees for those who wish to know. Our current trustees are: Mr. Trevor Fowler, Mr. Terry Ames and Mr. Gary Weerts.

We will be needing your help to make this all happen. So stay tuned for ways in which you may be asked to pitch in. For now we need the services of a few P.I.’s (private detectives), some folks who are willing to use their sleuthing skills to look up, locate and invite people from our past to come join us as we celebrate in November. If you are a close Sherlock Holmes please contact Marianne Lazaro to receive your assignment.
