FUNDRAISING- SUPPORTING THE CHURCH AT THIS TIME
We have a dedicated, hardworking team exploring various fundraising ideas during this time of pandemic when so many of our regular church activities cannot happen. Here’s how you can help contribute to our effort. Please contact Lynn Dykeman for more information:
No donations for refugees at this time.
If you have an item you think can be sold online, is worth 20 dollars and one person can lift it and it can be no bigger than a cardboard box we will accept it. Contact Lynn via the church office 905-627-1424
Donations of books, older is better, first editions are better-all accepted
Donations of all jewellery accepted
Donations of any and all gold and silver accepted, even that odd earring!
This year we are once again supporting a number of families through Saint Matthew’s House to help provide gifts for children and food cards to support them through this difficult time. Around the church you will find STARS which tells you the age of a child and the preferred gift item. By taking a star you are agreeing to purchase that Item and return it to the church by 9th December with the star attached. You can also make a financial donation- drop off an envelope or cheque to the church clearly labelled ‘Christmas Families’. If you would like to take a star but can’t come to church, please call Jackie via the church office 905-627-1424.

PRAYER OF THE WEEK
Collect For Christ The King
whose Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven
that he might rule over all things as Lord and King:
keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit
and in the bond of peace,
and bring the whole created order to worship at his feet;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
