On December 26, our community will say goodbye to Karen Dale as she completes her last worship service as minister with us at Beach United Church.  

Karen has been a vital part of our community for 12 years. To mark her rich legacy of ministry, we have planned some send-off events:

On Wednesday, December 15 there will be a Zoom goodbye from 8 to 9pm. Feel free to “drop in” to spend some time with Karen and wish her well. At 8:45pm we will raise a glass to toast her with some formal remarks. Mary Anne Lemm will send this link out the week before. 

On Sunday, December 19 our worship service (in person and on Zoom) will include a time when you can, if you feel comfortable, share your best wishes with Karen. Jim McKibbin is also preparing some remarks to share on behalf of the congregation and community.  (You will be required to be double vaccinated to attend in person and pre-register on Eventbrite).  It would be great to have as many people as possible in attendance or online to wish her well!

Please let us know if you have any questions. Mark your calendars and let’s make this a fantastic send-off for Karen!
