Dear friends in Christ,
As per the Government of Ontario’s March 23, 2020 order to close non-essential businesses, effective today, we will cease regular operations at the Eastern Synod office. Plans are in place for staff members to work remotely from home and we have every confidence in our ability to effectively continue our core functions.
Since the recognized start of the COVID-19 pandemic, our work as a staff has been directed toward providing support and encouragement to our rostered and congregational leaders. This will continue to be our focus for the foreseeable future. Our synod staff and officers are all healthy and, despite the normal anxieties all of us are facing, have maintained good humour and are experiencing joy in our service.
Should you have the need to contact any one of us, don’t hesitate to do so via email or telephone. A directory of contact information is available via the following link. https://easternsynod.org/contacts
While these are certainly extraordinary times, I have been inspired by the equally extraordinary efforts with which our church's collective leadership has responded. God is good! We have much for which to be grateful!!
Please be assured of our continued prayers for you and your dear ones. God is ever faithful in all times and circumstances. Peace be with you!
With all best wishes,
