LIGHT A CANDLE 

TO SUPPORT OUR VACANCY SEARCH TEAM 

Rev. Abiel would like the congregation to light a candle in their  homes every Wednesday evening at 7 pm for about 10 minutes until a new minister is selected. This shows our Search Team we support them and with the help of the Holy Spirit to guide them they will make the best selection of a minister for our church.

Note: Pastoral Care is important. Please contact the church office if you are going into hospital or if you or a family member are needing Pastoral Care. Your name will not be in the bulletin unless we have permission from you to do so. We wish to offer Pastoral Care support and at the same time respect your confidentiality.  

 

Community Life Team 

Farmers Market 

We have applied for a booth at our local Farmers Market. Our goal is to promote our church and various programs to our community. Flyers will be available for information and various activities for children. We need your help too. We are looking for enthusiastic individuals who are willing to help promote our church in a positive manner. If you could help out for 1 Saturday morning, that would be awesome. Please let anyone on Community Life Team know of your availability. Thanks.  

We are also looking for a portable shade awning.
