Our church needs a handyperson! Do you know a handyperson that our church could  use?  Our building often needs small repairs.  We would like to find a person to be our main contact for general work when we cannot do the repairs ourselves.  This would be a paid position on a fee for service basis.  If you know someone who could fill the role, please contact the council-member-on-duty or leave a note with the church.  Thanks!

The BIG “key return” event! Do you have a key to any church doors? How about keys to the elevator?  If you are in possession of a church key that you no longer use, please turn it in and mark what the key is for.  You can place them in the mail slot for the Nobles (62).  Thanks!  (Some of our keys (elevator) cannot be copied due to their size/shape).

Support for the 2SLGBTQI+ Community: As you may have seen from the ELCIC News, Christian leaders from across Canada are being asked to sign a unity statement. Pastor Colin has joined numerous peers in signing this important statement.  Our parish expresses our full support and solidarity with the 2SLGBTQI+ Community, and denounce any acts of hatred towards the members of this community, or towards any human beings.  If you would like to know more about the statement, please click here.

Fall Bazaar: There will be a fall Bazaar this year! The date is yet to be decided but we wanted to let everyone have a chance to start with preparations. We will need volunteers.
