Welcome to Milestones in Shining Waters Regional Council. We have expanded our regional notices to include not just upcoming covenanting services, but to mark other significant events in the life of our communities of faith, such as affirming services, milestone anniversaries, church closings and amalgamations. If your community of faith has an upcoming milestone, please share by contacting us at communications@shiningwatersregionalcouncil.ca
