Defibrillator In the House!

Thanks to a partnership with the Comox Firefighters Association, Comox Valley Presbyterian Church is now equipped with an Automatic Emergency Defibrillator (AED). We are grateful for the visit from Fire Chief Gord Schreiner who trained some members in how to use the device in the event of a cardiac emergency.
CVPC and the Association shared the cost of the device. Instead of $1500 it only cost us $750. Thank you to the Comox Firefighters Association for their generous donation and service!

Sermons on the web

March 24, 2014

– added ‘sermons’ to the site menu.

– uploaded the recording of the sermon from last Sunday. The quality isn’t perfect but I will try to figure out how to get the buzz out.

– the built-in audio player is not compatible with the ipad, so you have to click on the link to the mp3 and let your browser decide if it is streamable or requires a full download.

Thanks for the interest!

Our Church Secretary Retires

Jeannine Taylor retired August 23 after 11.5 years as church secretary. She has efficiently managed the church office through two ministers and some gaps between ministers. There was a luncheon in her honour after the service on Sunday,  August 19.  She and her husband Chris plan to use the farewell gift to go hot air ballooning on their retirement  trip.

Meditative Walk and Peace Pole

The summer camp children made a peace pole which has been erected on the church grounds. The pole has messages of peace in four languages – English, French and German.

We also now have a meditative walk near our community garden. The idea was conceived by Margaret Evans, our summer minister intern, and the work done by Bill Kennedy, assisted by Margaret and Sharon and Charlie Scott. It will provide peaceful moments for many people.
