Greetings from Gale Church to our Vacation Bible School families.
We will be cancelling our VBS for 2020.
The spring and summer of this year are certainly challenging for everyone. Gale Presbyterian Church has worked well to maintain our Sunday services and outreach ministry through the restrictions. It is with sincere regret, however, that we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Vacation Bible School scheduled for August 17th – 21st.
We have held this event for many years in cooperation with our summer camp staff from Kintail on the Road (KOTR). We had been preparing for this year’s camp for a long time. We were excited to welcome your children to our church and camp and it saddens us to a great extent to cancel it this year.
We need to ensure that all participants in our ministry are safe and secure. The uncertainty regarding the pandemic has led the Session of Gale Presbyterian Church to cancel the event for this year. We will be issuing a refund to all who had pre-registered for our VBS. These refunds will be sent out by mail soon after July 7th.
A nearby church, Woodside Bible Fellowship, is offering a half day VBS through July and August. You can find more information at woodsidechurch.ca
We shall be organizing our VBS for next year and you will be informed regarding this. We hope that your family will be able to participate whenever it will be held.
We pray you and your family will enjoy a safe and healthy summer.
Rev. Scott Sinclair Darlene Vandermey
Minister Clerk of Session
