Warm Up To Winnipeg Fundraiser

Sunday, our Potluck Sunday, you have the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s world (without ever leaving the building!) by supporting “Warm Up To Winnipeg”, an initiative of Grands ‘n’ More Winnipeg. This is how it works:

  • A Grands ‘n’ More volunteer knits a scarf
  • You contribute the value of the scarf ($5.00/child item or $10.00/adult item) to the Stephen Lewis Foundation, in support of African Grandmothers raising their grandchildren orphaned by AIDS
  • Grands ‘n’ More gives the scarf to Welcome Place for a refugee newly arrived in Winnipeg

These scarves will be “on sale” in the narthex before and after worship Today. (Please note – cash or cheques only)

Memory Tree Ornaments

If you placed an ornament on the memory tree during Advent please pick it up on the table in the Narthex.

Baby Layettes for Knox Healthy Start for Mom & Me

Once again collecting items to make Baby Layettes for Knox Healthy Start for Mom & Me. We will collect items during the month of January and there will be a box in the Narthex for those who would like to contribute the following:

Sunday’s sermon is a video from the Animate: Practices series entitled: ‘Community: An Unexpected Family’, featuring pastor and author Doug Pagitt. Join in the conversation beginning January 28th as we explore the faith practices that define who we are as a people of God.
