Until Labour Day the church office will be closed on Mondays. In case of a pastoral emergency during Rev. Betsy Hogan’s summer vacation (July 30 – Aug. 22), please leave a message at the church office, 423-9209; messages will be checked daily. Rev. Margaret Sagar is on call and will be alerted by Dr. Dora Stinson, 470-6679 or 452-1824 (cell) if necessary.

· Year-end summaries for the Annual Report are due Aug. 23. Please submit reports to Dora McGrath at the church office, either in person or by email, stmatts@ns.sympatico.ca
· A new edition of Kirk Spire will come out shortly. This communication needs input from individuals and committees. What do you want the congregation to know about the work you are doing? Contact Barbara Bickle, bbickle@ns.sympatico.ca
· You can sponsor a Sunday Bulletin to celebrate or remember friends and loved ones (think anniversaries, birthdays, memorials). An area in the bulletin will be set aside for each sponsor’s dedication. The cost is $25, the weekly cost of producing the bulletin. Contact the church office, 423-9209.
