MWMC Youth Event
Attention all Milliken Youth! We are going out for a special Youth event this Saturday. Join us at ACTIVATE at 2:00 pm. Our time slot begins at 2:30 pm, so we must be there on time.
Location is 1980 Eglinton Avenue East Toronto, ON M1L 2M6. Please confirm with Pastor Aza by Wed. Dec. 14 if you plan to attend. If you would like to bring a friend, please let us know. We are booked for a party of 10 so if the number must increase we need to know as soon as possible.
Congratulations to Axel and Erica!
We are proud to announce the upcoming Wedding of our dear Pastor Axel will be getting married! He and his bride Erica will join together in Holy matrimony on Sunday, December 18th @ 3pm. He has extended an invitation to Milliken watch his wedding via Zoom. An email will be sent out with the link so that you will not miss this special event. If you are not on our email list, please go to our website and sign up at MillikenChurch.org/sign-up to get connected or please reach out to Pastor Aza or Chris for details.
Poinsettias are back!
We will adorn our stage with Poinsettias for the Advent Christmas Season. As is our tradition, these Poinsettias are available to take home for a donation of $10. Adopted Poinsettias will be available to take home from Sunday, December 18th-24th. You may contact Pat Pitre @ firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your plant for the Christmas Season.
Income Tax Receipts
Our finance team would like to give a friendly reminder that anyone who would like to receive a tax receipt for their financial contributions MUST put all Cheques and Cash in an envelope with FULL NAME AND ADDRESS. We have received several unlabeled envelopes and without a name and address, there is no way of knowing who has made a contribution. Unlabeled envelopes go directly to the general fund, so we ask you to PLEASE label your envelopes before placing them in the offering box.
First Responder Class
We are looking for people who would be interested in taking CPR and defibrillator classes that will be offered at Milliken. There is no charge for the classes, but only 14 spots available. If you would like to sign up, please contact Sis. Jocelyn, use the online form or call the church office at 905-475-3579.
Advent ends with Christmas, and we will have a 2-day celebration this year!
Christmas Eve Service: Saturday, Dec. 24 @7pm
Christmas Day Service: Sunday, Dec. 25 @10am (Special Time)
Family Sunday at Milliken!
Milliken will have FAMILY SUNDAY every month on the last Sunday of the month. Each month, we will have 1 family who will “lead” the service. This is a time for you to also invite others to join in and worship with us!
Worship Arts Team
We have been blessed with a wonderful team of volunteers who have committed their gifts to serving the Lord in this capacity. We would love for more of you to join our Worship Arts Team. Here are 3 reasons why you should join:
1) A place to develop your gifts and be equipped to serve
2) Wonderful team of believers who support each other and pray for each other
3) Youth Alert! If you are looking to gain credits toward your volunteer service, this is a great way for you to earn those credits!
For more information, please visit www.millikenchurch.org for details on these areas of service.
Tithes and Offerings can be submitted in person or online. If you would like to arrange a personal drop off aside from the above options, please call 905-475-3579. Please make an appointment before a drop off is made to ensure someone will be present to receive it. Leave a message and someone will confirm your arrangements. You may also visit us at www.millikenchurch.org and select GIVE. Your contributions are greatly appreciated.
