Gale’s Prayer Tree – a beautiful image of prayer
Staying connected with God & each other.

If you have any prayer requests, you can email them to:

A piece of yarn will be added to our Prayer Tree in the sanctuary for prayer requests during the season of Lent.  If you have a specific colour to accompany your prayer, please include that detail.


Congregation Survey

The Transition Team that was formed to create a profile of Gale for the new minister Search Committee appreciates the tremendous response to its congregational survey.  The survey is now closed and the responses will be assessed.

We had 82 surveys submitted by the deadline, including 11 surveys completed on paper.  These were entered into SurveyMonkey so the responses can be tabulated with the rest.

The results will be shared with the Search Committee that will take on the challenge of interviewing for a new minister.  The results will also be reviewed by a new minister.

At some point in the future, the results will also be shared with the congregation. Please stay tuned!

Many thanks from the Transition Team,
