Global Market - Share the Bounty

If you have fruit and vegetables from your garden or baking and preserves please bring them to church on Sunday, October 15. There will be a table set up in the hall and all offerings will be sold by donation. The proceeds will go to support the work of the Primates World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF).

Church Calendars 2018

If you would like to order a church calendar for 2018 please sign your name, telephone number, and how many calendars you would like on the sign-up sheet on the table at the back of the church. Only enough calendars will be ordered for those who sign up. Delivery is expected some time towards the end of October/beginning or November and the price this year will be $8.00 per calendar. The last day to sign up will be Sunday September 24th as we have to get our order in quickly.

Church Garden

We are looking for help with maintaining some areas of the church garden. At present there are several volunteers who look after specific areas of the garden but additional help would be most welcome. If you would like to adopt an area, please speak to Fay and she will be happy to show you where help is needed.

Our Sponsor Children

Cards and a gift of $45 have been sent to our two sponsor children, Maria and Betselot, this month for their Christmas celebrations. This is done through the Christian Children's Fund of Canada in September in order to have the cards and gifts ready to be distributed in December.

St. Barnabas Food Cupboard

Donated food items were delivered to St. Barnabas, our sister parish in uptown New Westminster, to be distributed through their Emergency Food Cupboard to families and individuals struggling to make ends meet. They are very appreciative of our contributions; please continue to support them by dropping off non-perishable food items in the donation basket by the door in our church hall.
