Summer Worship Series: Practicing Faith

This series, written by Alissa Bender, pastor at Hamilton Mennonite Church, focuses on some of the spiritual practices that draw us into a living relationship with God. Topics will include: Prayer, Gratitude, Reaching Out Reaching In, Spiritual Companions, Scripture Study, Fasting and Celebrating. We look forward to delving into what it means to practice our faith in our daily lives.


Join us next Sunday, July 22nd, after church for a time of celebration with Valerie and her husband Ken. Valerie and Ken were married on June 30th.


Summer Givings

The summer can be a tim when we may find ourselves taking a break from church for various reasons. However 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 cover expenses over the summer but will help us meet our budget for the current church year. Thank you. Lia Fewkes, Treasurer


Iceculture Tour

We are planning a bus trip to Iceculture Inc. in Hensall on Friday, August 17. $70 per person will cover the bus, lunch at Huron Family Diner in Exeter and the tour. The bus will leave Wilmot at 10:30 a. m. and arrive back at about 4:30 p. m. Invite your friends to join us. Please see the poster and sign up in the foyer, or contact Valerie to put your name on the list. Payment can be made to Lia.
The Tour The tour starts off with a short video narrated by Julian Bayley (founder) and his daughter, Heidi, filled with some personal stories. Then a quick walk through a large freezer and a walk around the plant floor - showing how they make crystal clear ice blocks, ice bowls and then a look into our studio freezer/CNC office. You will stop at 3-4 stations and then have a short sit down break to watch another short video with Julian and Heidi about some of the larger events or sculptures they have created and what went on behind the scenes. This allows for a bit of a break, before walking back towards the front - where you will enjoy the large walk in freezer (10-15 minutes) with lots of ice sculptures for guests to photograph and enjoy.
The Lunch You will be offered a choice of soup,sandwich, fries or salad, dessert or omelette, toast, salad or fries, dessert.
