Everyone is welcome to Bruce and Dale Weber’s on Sunday, July 28 at 6:30 - 9:00 p. m. for a "back yard fire pit time". Water bottles, hot dogs/buns and marshmallows will be supplied. You are invited to bring "munchies" to share. It would be a good idea to wear mosquito protection...(long sleeves, etc. and spray). Everyone is welcome to bring instruments for a sing along.

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 $88 has been collected. The sign up sheet for snacks is in the library. If you are able to bring snacks for coffee hour on a Sunday, please sign up for this important ministry.

Summer Givings

The summer can be a time 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 your cheque on the appropriate date. For some it may be easier to increase your offerings before you leave or to catch them up when you return. Whatever method you choose, I thank you for your support. Any offerings received by August 31 st will not only help cover expenses over the summer but will also help us meet our budget for the current church year. Thank you, Lia Fewkes, Treasurer

Offerings when service is at other locations

For those Sundays where our service will be held at Mannheim, Nithview Homes, and St. Agatha 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.
