Due to the level of interest the last two years, we have decided to go to Brookfield Gardens again this year. We will go this Sunday, October 22 and it is open to all ages.
We are asking for parents to drop kids off at Brookfield Gardens (1067 Millboro Road) at 9:00 am Sunday morning and pick up will be at 12 noon.
Bernie has arranged for a tour of the facilities and a covered wagon ride to/from the fields where we will pick vegetables for the food bank.
Please dress appropriately for the weather and in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Rubber boots are recommended.
Please let me know if you have any questions! We look forward to seeing you all there!
We will be hosting our own Terry Fox Walk for Sunday School this Sunday, September 17th! We will not be going in for the service but will meet in the lobby and leave at 10:30 and be back to the Church for 11:30.
We ask that the children come dressed in outdoor clothes appropriate for the weather–it appears that there is a chance of showers so please take a jacket in case! Also- we would ask that each child take a small donation in support of the Terry Fox Foundation.
We look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday!

We will be holding our winter carnival this Sunday!! Please dress ready to be outside!
Hope everyone enjoys their March Break!
This coming Sunday (March 5th) we will be having our annual Winter Carnival!
We will meet in the foyer at 1030 and head over to the playground at Central Queens. We will not be going inside for the first part of the church service. Please ensure everyone is dressed weather appropriate to be outside for an hour or so!
Please bring: hockey sticks for ball hockey (if you are interested in playing), a sled or crazy carpet (hopefully there still will be a little bit of snow for us to enjoy!) and a treat to share!
We will have lots of activities for those not interested in ball hockey or sledding (snow painting, snowperson building, other games, using the playground equipment, etc.). We will also have Hot Chocolate!
Last week our older kids prepared and served a meal at the Upper Room. They served approximately 75 people and worked hard! Our Youth Group made a bunch of cakes and cheesecakes Friday evening to serve as dessert at the Upper Room. Thanks to all of the kids who participated!
Also, the church anniversary committee announced last week that they are planning an adult vs kids hockey game on March 12th. It will be at North Rustico Arena from 3:10-4:10.
Hope to see you all this Sunday!
