Sunday Bulletin Donations!

Have you ever thought about different ways of recognizing and honoring the memory of a loved one besides flowers?

If so, the Congregational Life Team invites you to consider donating the Bulletins on a particular Sunday in loving memory of a loved one. The occasion may be an anniversary or any occasion that you find meaningful and memorable. There will be an inscription included in that week’s bulletins: “This week’s bulletin is in loving memory of …..”

The cost of a week’s bulletins is $25.00 and if you’d like to participate, please speak with our Office Administrator.

Compassionate Fund

On behalf of the Community Life Team, I’m inviting to open your hearts once again and prayerfully consider contributing to our Compassionate Fund. This has been a difficult Winter for many of our community friends and as a result, they’ve had to rely much more on community resources including our own Grocery Card Program. To help place this in context, approximately 100 cards were distributed during 2015. From January – February this year, 73 cards have already been distributed, and as a result, our Compassionate Fund has been significantly depleted. Your Council at its April 5th meeting, made the decision to suspend the Card program until mid-Fall, while we work towards building the Fund up once more. Either Dianne or myself are happy to answer any questions you may have. In the mean time, we invite you to make a donation to the Fund either in an appropriately marked envelop or directly to the Office. Thank you for taking the time to prayerfully think of those in our community who aren’t as fortunate as we are.
