Warm Up To Winnipeg Fundraiser
On January 14th, our upcoming 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 on January 14th! (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.
Artificial Christmas Tree to give away. Call Cathy in the office at 204.253.1491 x 20 for information.
