Gifts with Vision ~ A giving catalogue from the People of The United Church of Canada. You can donate online – giftswithvision.ca, by mail or by phone. Catalogues are on the round table in the entry way.
Reverse Advent Calendar ~ reminds everyone that holidays are about giving. We have included an example which can be used for items for the Food Bank.
Electronic Sign ~ Our Church sign is well-read but is in sorry physical shape. Scotch Tape is no longer holding the letters in place. The stick, used to prop open the hinged window could slip and de-capitate the attendant! We are raising $35,000 for an electronic sign. Let’s make it happen by donating to the Building Fund!
Try a new type of Advent Calendar this year.
