service will be at Nithview Home at 10:00 am. After the service you are invited to a picnic at Dave and Bonnie Lee Bowman’s home. (72 William Street, New Hamburg) Please bring a first course item to share. Drinks and dessert will be provided. Bring your own plate, cutlery and lawn chair if possible.


Coffee money

for the summer will be sent to MCCO for the Ontario Indigenous Neighbours clean water project. Ontario contains one-fifth of the world’s fresh surface water, yet many First Nations communities in the province struggle with accessing clean and safe drinking water. Our donation will help First Nations communities in the far north of Ontario access sufficient safe, physically accessible and affordable water for personal and domestic use. So far we have collected $146.90.


Offerings when service is at other locations

p>For those Sundays where our service will be held at Mannheim and Nithview Home, please do not bring your offerings those Sundays. Instead bring your offerings the following week when we are back at Wilmot. Thank you, Lia Fewkes, Treasurer.
