Cezanne, Monet, Emily Carr, Tom Thomson ... if you think you have that kind of ability ... wait ... even if you have only heard of these folk ... we can use your help! This summer, Don and Sue Wallace and Wayne Dickson (and others) have been keeping the “outward appearances” of our church building looking top notch. But we also have a few areas inside that need some special attention with a paintbrush. Nothing too strenuous ... just careful application of some nice paint for the “ramp area” and the newly decorated youth room.

If you can spare a few hours, Mark Mainprize would like your help. Please contact the office 905-627-1424 or Mark has been doing lots of “prep” work inside, but sure could use a few extra hands to get this work completed before (all going well) we open our building in the fall.

Bless those who mourn

the death of relative or friend

and feel that with this loss

their lives are incomplete.

Bless those who mourn,

and fill these empty hearts

with pleasant memories,

the sound of laughter,

sunshine and happier days.

Bless those who mourn,

and heal their brokenness 

with the soothing balm

of your gentle touch, 

that they might know

shalom, wholeness, peace.
