Our Friend & Commoner: Paul Perry

It is with great sadness that we pass along the news that Paul Perry has died. We received the news the morning of Tuesday, July 3rd.

The Funeral is on Friday July 6th, 2018

  • 11am – Visitation
  • Noon – Funeral

The Visitation & Funeral Service will be at the Dodsworth & Brown Funeral Home, Robinson Chapel, 15 West Avenue North. (Corner of King & Wellington across from The Freeway).

The family has asked for memorial donations to be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or Living Rock Ministries in lieu of flowers.

Prayers for the family, and for each of us as would be much appreciated as we mourn his loss.

Paul has been a huge part of The Commons from day one. On Sunday July 8th, 2018, at 6pm we will be taking time at our first Outdoor Worship Gathering of the season to tell our “Paul Stories,” and to sing some songs that Paul wrote for The Commons.

Bring an instrument if you want to play along. We will have lots of chord charts of Paul’s songs available.

We have started a Facebook Photo Album to help people remember all the ways Paul spoke into our lives. If you have any photos we should add please feel free to post them or send them to thecommonschurch@gmail.com

No Gathering on Canada Day

We like to switch things up for the summer at The Commons. For Canada Day (Sunday July 1st) we will be having a BBQ & Potluck in place of our Regular Gathering. We will meet at 6pm in front of the Hooper Law Building (128 Hughson St. N.) and then drive over to Ed & Karin’s House together. Email kristavanderhout[AT]gmail.com for more info.

Starting Sunday July 8th we will moving our gatherings outside for the rest of July & August.

We will be meeting Sundays at 6pm right beside Beasley Park at 55 Elgin St. (affectionately nicknamed Fort Elgin)). Bring a blanket or a chair to be comfortable. If it rains we just head inside to Fort Elgin. Although we have never been accused of being formal, these park gatherings are very creative, laid back and inter-generational.

Other Dates to keep in mind:

  • Sunday August 12th – 6pm Lake Gathering in Confederation Park. More details will be posted closer to the date.
  • Sunday September 2nd – 10am – Beach Day.
    We will meet at 55 Elgin to car pool. Adults are $15 and Kids are $5.
