Our church expenses do not take a break and still must be paid. I encourage everyone to keep their offerings up during the summer. If you will be away you can post-date a cheque and leave it in my mailbox. I will hold and deposit it on the appropriate date. For some it may be easier to increase your offerings before you leave or catch them up when you return. Whatever method you choose I thank you for your support. Any offerings received by August 31st will not only help over expenses over the summer but will help us meet our budget for the current church year.
Thank you, Lia Fewkes, Treasurer
Hospitality is something that we have all given and received many times in our lifetime. This summer we will be exploring the theme of hospitality from a Biblical perspective and hear stories of how people in our congregation have.
In many places where MCC works, sewing skills open the door to additional income that can help a family make ends meet. Sewing kits are often given through MCC-supported programs that teach sewing or tailoring and provide the tools to make and mend clothing or to begin a business.MCC Ontario will be sending Sewing Kits to the Ukraine in September. We will be collecting items for the kits or financial contributions for the summer months. See the sheet by the mailboxes for exact details.
Darlene Culp has agreed to be the Good Cheer Co-ordinator. In this position, she will co-ordinate flowers or fruit trays to be delivered to those for whom a tangible expression of our hospitality as a congregation is appropriate. The Pastoral Ministry Team will be developing an appropriate criteria to help Darlene in this role.
Please sign up in the foyer if you are willing to deliver fruit or flowers to those who need cheering. Darlene Culp would like a list of those willing to make deliveries and then she will call you to make arrangements when needed
