What an exciting time for St. Andrew's!!!

Rev. Kevin Lee and his family visited St. Andrew's Calgary July 4-6 and Rev. Lee preached for a call to the position of Minister; Vision and Direction at both services on Sunday morning.

Background information re The Lee's is available here !!

At a Congregational Meeting held in St. Andrew’s Sanctuary on July 6 at 1 pm, the congregation confirmed their readiness to extend a Call to Rev. Lee.

Members and adherents were contacted by their Elder or District Visitor in the last 2 weeks and given an opportunity to sign the Call documents. This process is complete as of July 20 and the Presbytery of Calgary-Macleod will meet in the St. Andrew's sanctuary to process the call on July 22 at 7 pm. They will be looking for clear signs that this is a gospel call, and one of the signs is that a significant percentage (>75%) of the congregation's members and adherents have signed the call.

If the Presbytery determines that this call is indeed a gospel call, they will forward the call to Rev. Lee's current presbytery for approval.

If that Presbytery indeed concurs that this is a gospel call, they will place the call in the hands of Rev. Lee for him to make the final decision.

It is expected that this process will take until mid-August to complete.

Just a reminder, that the Call includes the guarantee of a stipend. It would be greatly appreciated if you could please continue your generous giving to St. Andrew’s, - and perhaps - even consider increasing it, in light of commitments to the Ministry here.

If you are interested in knowing more about the search process, it is outlined in the document "Calling a Minister" prepared by the Presbyterian Church in Canada. Download a copy here !!
