September Special Appeal: Jocelyn House

Wool Required

The Wednesday Fellowship Group is in need of wool for the making of quilts. Donations can be dropped off in the Blue Room. Thank you.

Back Door Locked

For security reasons and the well-being of the members, it has been decided that effective immediately, the north outside office door and the office administrators door will be locked during Sunday Services.

Blessing of the Beasts

Next Sunday, October 2 during worship we will be celebrating the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. Francis had a spirit of gratitude for all of God’s creation! We too give thanks, especially for our beloved pets. We invite you to bring a photograph of your pet and mount it on the photo board before worship. A special blessing for our beloved “beasts” will be offered during the service.

The Urban

A total 180 pounds of donations were collected over the last three months and dropped off to The Urban. Thank you for your support!

Come for Lunch!

We are having a fundraising lunch in support of the Urban following worship next Sunday, October 2. The Manitoba Pork Community Barbeque team will be providing their delicious Pork on a Bun sandwich! Our special guest speaker at the luncheon will be Rhonda Gorham, the new Ministry Manager of the Urban. Tickets for the lunch (to cover the costs) will be $5 per person. But this is a Fundraiser! Donations are very much appreciated. Offering envelopes will be available and receipts will be provided for donations of $20 or more. Come join us!
