Minister’s Retirement Announcement on May 13, 2020

MINISTER’S RETIREMENT ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear Congregation,

I am writing you this letter because Gayle and I have discerned that the time for me to retire from being your pastor has come. Therefore, it is my intention to retire from being the minister of word and sacrament at Langley Presbyterian Church effective October 1, 2020 (pending the approval of the Presbytery of Westminster).

Gayle and I would like to say that being your pastor, and your pastor’s wife, has been a wonderful experience. You are such a gracious and loving congregation that it is difficult for us to make this decision to leave you and move on to the next phase of our married life. But for reasons of my declining energies and Gayle’s declining health our decision to retire is a choice that cannot be delayed beyond the above stated date.

Through God’s blessing we have accomplished a lot together; as a session and as a congregation. You are now a congregation fully able to call a full-time minister to your pulpit. You have accomplished this in seven short years. Your future in Langley is bright. Your witness to the resurrection of Jesus Christ is strong in your community. Your partnerships with the Rev. Bill Gammer of the Restoration Community Church and the Reverends DJ and Clara of The Vancouver Shepherd’s House ministry make you a congregation with two unique opportunities to continue growing and becoming stronger in deed and in faith. I pray you will continue to cherish and nurture these relationships.

As for the short-term future. God no doubt will provide you with a caring and competent interim moderator to help guide you and your session through the next steps of your life together. Which I am confident will include the formation of a search committee resulting in, praise be to God, a true gospel call to the person who God is even now preparing to lead you all into your future as a thriving community of dedicated disciples to our Lord Jesus.

I am available in the coming days to meet, in person at a distance or over the phone, with any of you who wish to reflect with me on your continued relationship with Langley Presbyterian. I am leaving. God is not. I encourage you to walk together with God’s Holy Spirit into this new phase of your life as the Body of Christ who calls LPC home.

May God bless you all.

In the love of Christ,

Gayle and Dennis Howard

Good morning everyone.

As you know out of consideration of each others health we are temporarily not gathering for worship.

But thankfully, technology has provided us with alternative ways of meeting.

Click on this link and let’s join together in worship. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrWVRz3Q6Rc

I hope that this YouTube service of worship contributes to your celebration of the Sabbath this week.

I know it is not the same as being together face-to-face but under the circumstances, it’s the best we can do.

See you on Sunday.

March 18, 2020

Following the guidance of our provincial health officer, session has decided to suspend congregational gatherings immediately and until further notice. At the moment, the limit on gathering size set by the government is 50 people. If last Sunday is any indication our current attendance is well under that number. Therefore we are technically able to carry on meeting on Sundays for worship.

However many of us fall into the group that is particularly vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus. So in the spirit of caring for one another, session has decided we should cease gatherings at the church until the situation changes. Also, as the church, we are called to help our community get through this troubling time. By not gathering we are helping to reduce the risk of the virus spreading to others.

At the same time session recognises that our worship life together is critically important, the more so in times like these. Therefore we have decided to use technology as a means for virtual gathering as the church.

Here is the plan. Beginning March 29 we will be using YouTube to “gather” in worship. Our first YouTube service will be at 10:00 AM that day. You will actually be able to join in worship via YouTube at any time after 10:00 AM. But it would be good if we met at 10:00 like we normally do. For those of us not comfortable with internet technology, we will be emailing everyone a link that you can click on and go straight to our YouTube worship service without having to navigate the YouTube system. Session is also considering how we can include in our life together those without internet.

To this end members of session will be making an extra effort to connect with you during this time. But it will take all of us working together, caring for each other, to get through this time. So, please keep an eye out for your neighbours and for those who you know in the church who may need help. We plan to gather a list of those who are willing and able to pitch in by doing things like picking up groceries, etc. When we have compiled this list we will get into your hands. Let Clara know if you either need help or would like to be one of the helpers.

Finally, a word about our church finances. Stating the obvious, household and church bills never cease. To address this reality our on-line services, as all worship services should do. will include an offering time, an opportunity to thank God for his generous care for us. To facilitate the process of giving back to God we have attached a PAR (Pre Authorised Remittance) form. If you complete this form and return it to Clara along with a void cheque, the amount you indicate on the form will be deducted from your account on the 20th of each month. You may withdraw this form of making your offering at any time.

If you wish to support the financial needs of the congregation during this difficult time but are not comfortable signing up for the PAR program you may drop your offerings off at the church between 9:00 AM and noon Tuesday through Friday. If Clara or Dennis are not at the church when you come to make you offering you may deposit it in the mail slot in the bell tower.

Session thanks you for your prayers as we move together through this difficult time.

May the peace of Christ be with you all.

Your pastor, Dennis.

Martin Luther Pledge during the Bubonic Plague 1527

“I shall ask God, mercifully to protect us. Then I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine and take it. I shall avoid places and persons where my presence in not needed in order not to become contaminated and thus perchance inflict and pollute others and so cause their death as a result of my negligence. If God should with to take me, he will surely find me and I have done what he has expected of me and so I am not responsible for with my own death or the death of others. If my neighbour needs me, however, I shall not avoid place or person but will go freely, as stated above. See, this is such a God-fearing faith because it is neither brash nor foolhardy and does not tempt God.” ~Martin Luther. In 1527, bubonic plague

PCC MISSION MOMENTS:
Restoration and rehabilitation after Cyclone Idai
In Malawi, eating raw maize, a grain usually dried to make the traditional food nsima, is a sign of pressing hunger. After Cyclone Idai stormed into Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe one year ago, many people were left with only this option—or worse, with no food at all. After the cyclone, Katherine Chiphwayna’s lost crops meant her family of four often went to bed hungry. Then Katherine began receiving support through PWS&D and Canadian Foodgrains Bank. She is now able to work more and provide her children with fish, eggplants and tomatoes, in addition to the nsima they like. “The kids are happy to eat the food. It’s very tasty.”

 

STEPS LPC WILL TAKE TO REDUCE COVID – 19 HAZARD

STEPS LPC WILL TAKE TO REDUCE COVID – 19 HAZARD

Upon the recommendation of presbytery LPC will institute the following measures to reduce the COVID-19 hazard:

1) Coffee time suspended until further notice

2) Offering plates will be set on a table inside the sanctuary entrance so people can make their offering as they enter or leave the service

3) Greeters will continue at front door with the following modifications:

bulletins will be available in the narthex but will not be handed out,

  instead people may pick them up on their own

– no hand shaking or hugs

– maintain 1-meter distance from those whom  you are greeting

4) Communion is suspended until further notice.

5) We encourage everyone to maintain at least 1-meter of social distancing in the pews (this does not apply to family members who are regularly exposed to one another), no hand shakes, hugs or elbow bumps

6) We encourage those who are not well to stay home from services (be sure to let your elder know if you need any help, call the office or the pastor if you do not know who your elder is)

7) The backs of the pews and other shared surfaces will be sanitized before each service, wipes for this purpose will be in Clara’s office

8) Potluck for Maundy Thursday will most likely be suspended depending on the state of the virus situation at that time

9) Men’s breakfast is suspended until further notice

Please let your elder know if you have other suggestions as to how we can mitigate the effects of this virus.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we go through this challenge together.

On behalf of your session,

Rev. Dennis Howard

PCC MISSION MOMENTS:      International Women’s Day
In India, many girls miss school each month because they do not have the supplies or facilities they need during menstruation. Unsanitary practices put them and their communities at risk. PWS&D-supported community mobilizers are helping girls in India stay in school by educating them about personal and menstrual hygiene. Rima Kumari, a 14-year-old girl from Nandlali village, spent time with a community mobilizer. She received sustainable, reusable sanitary napkins and learned about personal hygiene practices. Now, with the supplies she needs, Rima can embrace the joy of uninterrupted learning.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS: Community outreach
West Toronto’s St. Andrew’s Islington Presbyterian Church has begun a new missional experiment called Intersection that seeks to reach out to people living in their community. This ministry invites people who have never been to church and may not feel comfortable stepping inside a church building to experience worship in a way that is more comfortable for them. The church is introducing neighbours to Christ by hosting events in everyday places such as retail spaces and condo party rooms. They hope to bless their neighbours by offering ESL meet ups, a senior’s drop-in café, divorce care groups, and parenting support programs.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS: Screening for health in Somalia
Samsam, a mother of five, lives in a community in Somalia where access to food is a consistent struggle and many people are malnourished. Samsam jumped at the opportunity to join a PWS&D-supported program to learn about nutrition for infants and young children. Through this program, she discovered a simple trick for determining whether a child or mother is malnourished: taking a measurement near the top of their arm. Now, by helping community members screen for malnutrition, Samsam is making sure that people in her village are receiving the care that they need. This program demonstrates the multiplying effect of enabling communities to help themselves. With 1,540 people trained on how to measure malnutrition in this way, over 15,000 children and 5,000 women have been screened so far.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS: CY 2020: No End in Sight
This July, hundreds of youth, young adults and leaders will gather for five days of soul-satisfying worship at Canada Youth. They will enjoy unique expressions of faith in both large and small groups, inspiring keynotes and workshops, dynamic faith exploration and joyful celebration. For 20 years, CY has been a gathering place for all kinds of enthusiastic Presbyterians to worship, play, create, learn, dance, sing, act, make new friends, study scripture, share joy, reflect, pray and share. More than 4,000 people have attended the event since it began, and the impact has been felt across our church. Presbyterians Sharing provides support for this unique event which comes around once every two years. Let’s celebrate the vibrant ministry of The Presbyterian Church in Canada!
