The Synod of Southwestern Ontario will be meeting on September 26th -27th in Niagara Falls.  We are fortunate to have Roger Nishioka as our speaker to inspire and challenge us over those two days.  Spencer Edwards (the Synod’s Youth Consultant) has organized a special evening with Roger after Synod for anyone who is interested.  Looks like a great night!
