Mission Trip: Are you interested in volunteering your time over March break? We are organizing an inter-generational mission trip set for march break (March 14-22) of 2020. The location is determined by the amount of interest, so let us know as soon as possible if you're available! All ages high school and above are welcome. I will be sending out an email with a date and time for an informational meeting to those who are considering it. Please contact us in the contact form for any questions.
Ministry to Seafarers
Shoe Bags Instead of Shoe Boxes: For many years our deacons have been encouraging the preparation of Christmas parcels for the seafarers and many of you have responded. Now the Ministry to Seafarers, Montreal is asking that we use sturdy colourful cloth bags instead of boxes. We need fabric and ribbon to make these and request your donations. There will be a box set up in the fellowship hall to receive them. We invite all who are able to come on Saturday morning, Nov. 2 to help make these shoe bags. Check out the ministry’s web site and under volunteer (Christmas parcels), you can find all the details. If you have questions, contact Jessica Joldersma or Grace Stapper.
Items for Seafarers
Enclose a Christmas card with a personal note and your name (and address if you’re comfortable doing so). Some of those who receive these gifts like to acknowledge them.
Parcel contents: Enclose one or more of the following new items: scarf, toque, gloves, socks, toothbrush and toothpaste, calendar, packaged candy, aftershave lotion, face cloth, playing cards, soap, nail clipper, picture frame (no glass), a small souvenir of Canada etc. (Please Note: Dollar store gloves and hats are totally acceptable - the seafarers don't wear them for work or play but rather when they are here, and other cold cities, they use them to just keep warm when off ship. Most seafarers find our climate VERY cold!)
(Reminder: Currently only items for men are needed at this time. )
