As the Barrie church struggles on through difficult Covid-19 restrictions, good things have happened over the winter and spring months. We baptized a man from a nearby community, appointed a new elder (Dave Knutson), and a new deacon (Calvin King). Young Adult Weekend took place in early May with a good turnout on Zoom. Eva Patrick celebrated her 100th birthday. Tim Johnson is retiring from full-time preaching at the end of May; Rich Gould of the Buffalo, NY, area will take his place in June.
