To the congregation:
We met this week and discussed our response to the current provincial mask mandates. Even though there are no official government requirements for worship services, we’ve decided we will post signs stating, “Masks are recommended except when at your seat“. Please bear this in mind and come prepared for next Sunday’s service.
Thank you for your cooperation and consideration of the health concerns of others.
See you Sunday!
Yours in Christ,
Valleyview Leadership Team

Time for another update. First of all, thank you for your patience. I know it's been difficult for some of you waiting as long as we have, and especially during this trying time of COVID. Just remember that the typical search is 12-18 months. Yes, we've reached the 19th month mark now. However, know that we've been encouraged with 2 of the applicants we've recently received.
As for the one applicant we were 're-looking' at in my last update, we did start the interview process with him. But, some challenging circumstances came up and we had to make the decision to not move forward.
We have 2 first interviews that are actually happening this evening! Two PST members team up and host them over a Zoom video conference. We record it to allow the other team members to view so we can then discuss at our next meeting (which is set for the following week). We pray that one of these men will be God's man for our church. Please pray for us and for these applicants as they seek God's next call on their lives.
Thank you again for your prayer and patience. Your encouragement is also welcome as we continue to persevere.
I will be hosting another Q&A session in November like we did last month. Please stay tuned for the exact day and time which we will announce at service.
We'd like to thank Pastor Dan and Pastor Kurtus for their steadfast service during this time of transition. Not having a Lead Pastor (particularly in these days of COVID) is a challenge in itself. But, they have remained faithful and fulfilled our need for the Word being preached every Sunday. We are grateful to God for you. Bless you both.
“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” Rm 10:15b
We look forward to the man God will call to fulfill this Lead Pastor role.
As always, please come talk with me if you have anything you'd like to discuss.
