Ester Wiens

Dear CFBC Church Family,

We hope that the beginning of this new month finds you well! As with the newness of spring we are seeing God provide in new ways for our church as well.

Ester Wiens is now functioning in her role as Office Administrator, which is such a blessing. As a result, the office is now open from Tuesday to Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Ester is working hard to provide administrative support to the leadership team. Please feel welcome to contact the office with any questions or comments. Ester will be able to help you or she will pass it on to someone who can.

The Fellowship Office has made contact with a couple of men who could be potential opportunities for an Interim Pastor. An Interim Pastor would help advise the Leadership Team in what we can be doing now to set us up well for when we can meet together again in our church building. We are waiting to hear back with more information.  We ask that you pray with us for just the right person to have the time availability, the right gifts and abilities.  We will keep you posted as we move forward in this process.

The Leadership Team made the decision to cancel our Spring Planning Meeting. It is usually held in late May or early June, but we are unable to come together as a church family because of the COVID-19 situation.  As we watch what develops over the next few weeks, we will let you know if we are able to hold a meeting later in the summer or if it will have to wait for our Annual General Meeting. 

As of yet, our bookkeeper has not heard back from the government on the subsidy program(s) that have been applied for.  We continue to ask that as you are able you would support the church financially as most of the expenses and support of missionaries remains the same during this time. You can mail in cheques, drop off cheques at the church office, set up automatic payments through the church office, or e-transfer donations to [email protected].

We continue to meet virtually with our sister church, Northstar Church, in Quesnel for services on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am at www.northstarchurch.ca. We would love to hear stories about how God is providing, or how you see Him working during this time.

We all miss our sharing and prayer time on Sunday mornings. Stories and testimonies can be shared by emailing the church office or contacting any one of the Leadership Team. Please join us as we meet at 11:00 virtually via Zoom after the online service. The link is https://zoom.us/j/719551335

Love and Prayers,

Janice McDonald Chair,

Leadership Team
