Helping those in need - near and far

GIFT BAGS are needed by our Shawl Ministry. Bags that are medium to large size for shawls, lap robes, slippers, baby blankets, etc. are needed. If you can help please contact the church office.

FAMINE RELIEF: As we know, famine has been declared in parts of South Sudan, one of the countries which CBM (Canadian Baptist Ministries) has been providing relief support for through our partner FEBAC. The Government of Canada has announced that it will match donations from individual Canadians in response to severe food crises in Somalia, Nigeria, South Sudan, Yemen and surrounding regions dollar-for-dollar through its new Famine Relief Fund. Donations eligible for the match must be given to registered Canadian charities, such as CBM. Please pray for generous giving from Canadians.

Please use Connection Cards to communicate with pastors

Church Family, please feel free to use our Connection Cards to pass prayer requests, comments or questions along to the pastoral staff.
