We would appreciate having winter coats, gloves, scarves, boots, and hats to help those less fortunate to keep warm. You may contact Pastor Eddie for drop off times and the location of where you can bring it .
Lead “Family” Open Invitation
As the season of Advent has begun, we need three family units or “family units” to help lead the Advent Readings for each Sunday. If interested, please contact Pastor Eddie by the coming Wednesday, December 6 so that we can plan accordingly and have the reading ready for you.
As the year, unbelievably, comes to a close, we need a new round of Leading “Families” for our Family Sundays. As you might have noticed, we are looking for family units, meaning you may not have to be related by blood, but by association, also. Even if you have participated before, we welcome your participation. Please contact Pastor Stephen to let him know your availability so that we can plan for 2024.
Christmas Mission Giving Drive
For the next four weeks, we will be having our Annual Mission Giving Drive. This year, we will be working with SunshineTrail Resource Centre Autism. They are an organization that exists to serve and conduct interventions in Autistic Children/individuals in order to restore, establish and bring an awareness of Autism in our community and societies. Eliminating hopelessness.
English Class Temporary Arrangement: As our teacher, Mr. Dennis is away on vacation, please contact Brother Chris for your homework. On Thursdays at 6:30 pm., Dr. Joan Chung will be our Chinese Language teacher teaching us Mandarin.
Once again, we have 20 pots of beautiful Poinsettia available for our members to reserve in memory of our loved ones. The suggested donation is $15 each. Please contact sister Pat Pitre at the church to reserve yours.
