Join us as we formally recognize Rev. Dr. Allan Saunders and Megumi Matsuo Saunders as Ministers Emeriti of First Met. The Board of First Met approved the designation earlier this year in recognition of their long service to the congregation.

 Allan and Megumi came to First Met in 1999, shortly after amalgamation of the two founding churches, and retired in 2016 - Allan as Lead Minister and Megumi as Minister of Children, Youth, Young Adults and Families. Board Chair Edeana Malcolm says: “We are absolutely delighted that we can honour Allan and Megumi in this way, and that they have accepted.”
