This week Pastor Ken Driedger will be on duty Sunday through Thursday.
Thank you all for your prayers and love during Dawne’s stress leave! She is planning to return to work, albeit on a gradual basis as of today; May 6th. Her progress will be closely monitored and we are hopeful that she will gain strength and resilience as we move ahead. Thank you for your careful attention and ongoing support of both Ken and Dawne as they moved through this season of challenge. Dawne will be continuing to reference with MCEC supports as she reintegrates into her role and responsibilities as a pastor of the Wideman Mennonite Church. Sincerely Al Rempel Regional Minister MCEC’
