A short while ago a couple of council members met with Myles Vanni of the Inn of the Good Shepherd. Out of this meeting it was suggested that we as a congregation could get involved with
serving meals at the soup kitchen. At this point in time no dates have been set. We would first like to see if there is an interest in doing this. We have the option of doing this on a regular basis (monthly), or just a few times a year. 6-8 people are needed to prepare, serve and clean up. The time commitment would be 3 hours. Once we have enough volunteers, the volunteers will be asked what day of the week they would prefer. Talk to your family and friends to see if this is something you could do together. This is a great opportunity to show Christ’s love to our community.
Together we can do this! If you have questions or would like to volunteer, please email or call the church office.

NewGround (formerly Operation Manna) 2019 Offering

Have you heard the news? Operation Manna is now NewGround! God is at always at
work. He calls churches to follow Him into their communities to share Christ’s transformational love with each and every person. Cities and neighbourhoods should be impacted
and blessed through the social action and thoughtful, cultural engagement of local Christians. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and join Him! On Sunday, May 5, we will join together with
CRC’s across Canada to take an offering for NewGround, a program of Diaconal Ministries Canada. Learn more about this program by visiting the DMC website at
