Habitat for Humanity has asked the St. Vital Inter Faith group to sponsor another house build in 2018. They have purchased a building lot in south St. Boniface and are hoping to obtain another one or two in St. Vital. All 28 faith groups in St. Vital have been invited and we expect to have 50% or more participating in this project. Further details will follow as plans are developed.

Parking Lot This is a friendly reminder to come to a complete stop at our STOP sign on the North end of the parking lot.

Hamper families If your family or someone you know would benefit from a Christmas hamper this year, your confidential request needs to be into Deacon Kris by November 1st at the latest. To facilitate delivery, we request that families either live in our area (South Winnipeg) or provide an address of a family member or friend in the area where the hamper can be delivered.

Faith’s 60th Anniversary What a wonderful weekend of worship and fellowship we shared last weekend! Thank you everyone for all you did to make it such a happy event. The men’s breakfast and speaker, the appetizers, dainties and beverages were delicious! The decorations were beautiful, the displays were interesting, the church and entry were ‘company ready’, the kitchen help were awesome, the entertainment was beyond good, the youth were able to meet many of you and begin conversations, the music and worship were moving, (in fact, standing with the choir for the last hymn, the congregational singing almost blew us away), and all of that could not have happened without the help of an army of helpers. THANK YOU ONE AND ALL!
