Bulletin – May 21, 2017

We continue to raise money to pay for our roof repair. As of Friday, May 12, we have raised a total of $48,715.62 towards our ultimate goal of $115,000. Thank you for your ongoing generosity towards this need.

Prayer is still happening between services at the front of the sanctuary. If you’re looking for more opportunity for times of corporate prayer, you’re also welcome to join Brian Austin in the Admin Centre during the beginning of first service.

We are hoping to build a roster of volunteers to help take care of our lawn and gardens. If you’re willing to make yourself available once in a while to help with these things, please sign up in the foyer and someone will be in touch.

Pastor Jason’s last days in the office will be Wednesday, May 24 – Friday, May 26.

Beginning on June 4 we will be going to one 10:00 a.m. service for the summer.

Mom’s and Tot’s is looking for someone without small children to take on a leadership role within the ministry: to help organize childcare and coordinate events/ideas (i.e. leading craft days, cooking days, arranging a Bible study), while still including and incorporating the ideas and needs of the mother’s who attend.
