Middle/High School Event – Date change: Our next Jr/Sr high school event is being moved from its current date (November 29th) to a yet to be decided date in early December so that more people can attend. Please see Jordan after church or email him if you would like to attend
Church School Youth will be participating in worship on December 6. This special service will be followed by our Annual Pot Luck Lunch. All are invited! Please bring your favourite hot/cold casserole, vegetables, fruit, bread, etc. This is also “Birthday Sunday” so cake and ice cream will be provided, therefore, no need to bring dessert.
Thank you to all for your contributions from last Sunday’s Soup for Refugees. A total of $515 was donated. Also, thank you to the many hands that helped in the preparation and clean up.
The Mission Tree at the back of the sanctuary is decorated with envelopes. Some are marked with the term “Benevolent Fund”. Any donations received are used throughout the year to assist with those who need help on an occasional and short term basis. There are also “trees” with the names, sizes, and ages of a local family in need of assistance. This provides an opportunity for choosing and purchasing an appropriate gift. Also on the tree is information on the “Buy a Night” campaign in support of the local community shelters. The Missions Committee thought it best to provide choices for giving, and appreciate your concern and support. In addition to the foregoing we continue our weekly support for the Fredericton Food Bank with donation boxes located at all three entrances.
