Our Church News
CHURCH YARD CLEAN UP – There is still much raking to be done on the lawns at the back of the church. We want our church and its grounds to look neat and tidy, so please join us this Thursday, May 27th at 6 PM at the church to finish the raking. The rain date will be Saturday, May 29th at 9 AM. Thank you.
COMMUNION ELEMENTS – For those members who are watching our online services and participating in communion, there are communion cups containing the bread and juice, available at the church office. Members who attend the in-person services, who know of someone who may like to receive the communion cups please feel free to pick them up at the office as well.
ITEMS FOR SALE – Our intended Yard Sale will be put on hold for another year due to Covid, however, we do have items for sale at the Church Centre. You may find pictures of these items on our church FaceBook page and you may drop in at the Church Centre as they are on display here. Monies collected will be used for Church missions. Thank you to Gwen Baisley for setting up the items for sale.
