Rev. John will be on Study Leave from Sunday November 1 until Wednesday November 4. He will return to “the office” on Thursday morning for Bible Study.
During this time, he will not be available via phone or email. If you have a pastoral emergency, please contact The Rev. Diane Boyd (her phone number is available from the most recent congregational email blast).
The Rev. John Borthwick is on vacation starting Wednesday April 29 until Tuesday May 5. The Mission and Outreach Coordinating Committee and the Women’s Missionary Society traditionally plan and present the Mission Awareness Sunday service on the first Sunday in May. This year, they are pleased to share the service by ZOOM today. Our guest preacher is The Rev. Diane Boyd, minister of Rockwood Presbyterian Church.
