Youth Group and Sunday School

Sunday School has started but you are never too late to join us – all are welcome!

Youth Group (grades 7 to 12) meets the last Friday of each month from 7 to 9 at the church or an off-site location.

Remembrance Day

Hi everyone,

This Sunday we will be celebrating Remembrance Day in Sunday School. We will be going outside to make our field of crosses again this year.
If each child could bring the name of a veteran to remember, we will include the name in our activity.

Rev. Barb also asked us to plant a few tulips, which were given to the church in preparation for Canada’s 150th birthday!

So we ask for everyone to come on Sunday prepared to be outside and get a little dirty!

Let us know if you have any questions!

Going to Rosewood for Halloween this Sunday!

Hello everyone,

We’re taking the Sunday School students to Rosewood this Sunday. We ask that the students come in their Halloween costumes, which hopefully everyone will have as it is the day before Halloween this year!

We will meet at the Church at 10:30, walk over as a group, sing some songs, have a snack and then head back to the Church for 11:30.

We would love if a few parents could volunteer to make some snacks for this.

We hope to have a great turn-out as the residents really look forward to and enjoy our visit!

Hope to see you all on Sunday!
Grace and Debbie

Brookfield Gardens Tour and Pick Vegetables for Food Bank

Hello everyone,

Due to the level of interest last year, we have decided to go to Brookfield Gardens again this year. We will go this Sunday, October 16 and it will be open to all ages (we are not taking separate age groups this year).

We found the time to be too short last year and so we have decided to schedule more time this year.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!

Kind regards,
Grace

Terry Fox Walk

Hello everyone,

We will be hosting our own Terry Fox Walk for Sunday School this Sunday, September 18th! We will not be going in for the service but will meet in the lobby and leave at 10:30 and 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!

Kind regards,

Grace & Debbie
