Sorrow for the Past; Hope for the Future

 

Sweet grass in Miners Marsh, Kentville, and

a tree in Clock Park, Wolfville,

were planted

in sorrowful memory
of all the First Nations children who died without honour
away from family in schools not their own …
and in hope that a path may be forged
to mutual respect, regard, reconciliation,
affirmation that we are all children
of one loving Creator/God.

SEARCH FOR PASTOR OF FAMILIES AND COMMUNITY OUTREACH

The Search Committee is delighted to announce that we have selected a candidate to recommend to the congregation.  We have had three conversations with the candidate via Zoom on March 29, April 20, and May 10.  We also completed three positive reference checks in late May. 

 

This candidate has more than 5 years of pastoral ministry in the Maritimes as Community Pastor and Associate Pastor.  Prior to becoming a pastor, the candidate served as a volunteer Children’s Ministry Leader for more than 8 years. A Master of Divinity graduate of Acadia Divinity College, the candidate is Ordained to Christian Ministry through the Canadian Baptists of Atlantic Canada.  More information will be shared at the meeting of the congregation scheduled Wednesday, June 22.

Please  update your calendars with the following dates:
 

  1. The candidate has been invited to come to Wolfville the weekend of June 25 and 26.  Meetings with ministry leaders and the five Boards have been scheduled for June 25, and the candidate will preach during the morning worship service on Sunday, June 26

    The Social & Benevolent Society has kindly organized a potluck BBQ lunch to follow the Sunday morning service.  We ask you to bring a salad or a dessert to share. This lunch time will be your opportunity to meet-and-greet the candidate as well as engage in a question-and-response time.

     

  2. A special meeting of the congregation is scheduled for Wednesday, June 29, at 7:00 pm, via Zoom, for the congregation to vote on whether to Call this candidate to Wolfville Baptist Church.  To approve a Call will require at least 85% of the members attending this meeting voting “yes” to extend the Call.

 

Please join us as we prayerfully consider this Call.  If you have questions, please contact John Murimboh or Eveline DeSchiffart.

SWEET GRASS PLANTING

 

People of Annapolis Valley First Nation and nearby communities gathered on July 8, 2021, at Miners Marsh in Kentville. Together we grieved the tragic deaths of Indigenous children in residential schools, and we planted healing sweet grass acknowledging that the Creator sees all peoples as one. Thanks go to Wolfville Baptist Church, the Town of Kentville, and Susan Lawrence of Baldwin Nurseries for her generous gift of sweet grass.

 

We offer special thanks to Carolyn Landry and her sister Neenie Melvin for their leadership in ceremony.

TREE PLANTING in MEMORY, in HONOUR, and in HOPE

 

A symbolic sugar maple tree was planted In the Clock Park in Wolfville on

July 13, 2021, by Wolfville Baptist Church and the Town of Wolfville. Led in ceremony by our Indigenous friends Carolyn Landry and her sister Neenie Melvin, we grieved the tragic deaths of Indigenous children in residential schools, and we expressed hope that, like the tree, we will grow in mutual understanding, respect, and affirmation as one people, children of the Creator.

 

Special thanks go to Susan Lawrence of Baldwin Nurseries who donated the tree with the words “because it means a lot to me”.

The church was established with the assistance of the New Light evangelist Henry Alline. The Baptist movement remained strong in the area. In 1838 Acadia University was founded as a Baptist college.
