The Messenger - July 2023

Happy Canada Day!

Wear red and white with pride! We are so fortunate to live in this great Country called Canada. Take a moment to stop and think about what living in Canada means to you and the sacrifices many have made to make this a wonderful place to call home.


Avgen Order

We are doing a summer order for gift cards. Order sheets are available in the Narthex or at the church office. The deadline for submitting your order is July 10th

What is in those bags?

Sunday School is out on summer break, but our youth are not forgotten. The Christian Education Committee has assembled Activity Bags which are in the narthex for our youth to explore during Sunday services. Hope to see your smiling faces!
