Inclement Weather In case of impending major snowfalls or freezing rain warnings, please check with the leaders of your parish group or activity before coming to the church. When possible, a message will also be left on the church answering machine. We cannot guarantee that the parking lot or path ways will be cleared or completely sanded, so please be smart! Every time we call for sanding there is an extra cost to the parish of $95. So, if you complain, put an extra $100. In the plate! Please note that sand/salt containers are located at both the front and the servery doors. Don’t wait for ‘someone else’ to respond if there is a need to make our walkways safer!
Church Cleaners A professional cleaning company has been hired to clean the tiled areas of the church once a month. Cleaning, however, must take place on a weekly basis. If you are available to assist in this task, once a month, Saturdays or Mondays, please volunteer to Colin Taylor, Judy Beehler or the clergy.
Thank you to everyone who contributed (234 total!) $10. gift cards for the Community Ministries (The Well, Centre 454, Cornerstone, St. Luke’s Table, and Centre 105).
Thank you also for the table favours for The Well(and to the Church School staff and students), the food for Centre 454, the Basket of Warmth donations and the quilts given to Cornerstone.
Thanks to everyone who contributed so generously to the “End the Cycle” fundraiser for a new washing machine for Centre 105 in Cornwall. The old machine there stopped functioning on Friday, December 13 and we were able to send them a cheque for $1200 the following week (as well as Tide pods and gently used winter coats). Thanks to Carol, Sharon, Arch and Susan for delivery services.
