What if we could fill the whole floor under our foyer tree with food??! Can you help? Our Warming Centre needs to fill their pantry with food to hand out to those who attend each Thursday. You can be a Christmas blessing by bringing in easy to prepare non-perishables. Many of the people we’re serving through the Warming Centre don’t have access to a full kitchen. Consider bringing items that can be heated in a microwave. Cans of hearty soups, stews, or chili are perfect for a cold winters day. Kraft Dinner is also a good option. Let’s be generous this Christmas! Bring a donation with you on Christmas Eve.

Do you love to bake? If you’re interested in helping to provide desserts for our MIDWEEK MEAL, please connect with Pastor Kristina.

We are still looking for volunteers to fill a few gaps. If you’d be willing to serve on the usher team, or if hospitality is something near and dear to your heart, please talk with Pastor Kristina.

Are you interested in helping us fill our freezer? We’d love to have a selection of home cooked meals we can hand out as blessings. Please connect with Pastor Lyndsay if you can help.


Thank you to Frances and Elaine Winger for your many years of service to the ministries of HMC. We wish you well as you relocate. You will be missed.

PRAYER REQUESTS

Please continue to keep Sue McDougall and family in your prayers. She has been diagnosed with aggressive lymphoma and is currently undergoing chemo treatments.

Please pray for Pastor Dave and family as they take the next two weeks away together. Pray for safe travels and that their time would be refreshing.

Please pray for our Warming Centre as it launches this week. Pray for the volunteers and for the people who will frequent it.

Branching Out

Operation Christmas Child is here! Boxes are available today and must be returned by November 17. This is a great opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child.

Our Warming Centre will be up and running on Thursday, November 7, providing a place for those in need of warmth and company to enjoy a hot bowl of soup and friendly conversation. We are accepting donations of non-perishable food items that can be handed out to those who attend. These items can be dropped off at the hutch in the foyer that is labelled HMC Pantry. Also needed are donations of bars of soap and small bottles of shampoo, as well as knitted goods. If you’d like to volunteer for this great ministry opportunity, whether it’s to hang out with our guests, to serve or clean up, or to make soup, please connect with Marcia Burt. There is a soup sign up at the Welcome Centre.

Thank you to the youth who came out and helped hand out candy to the community kids on Halloween night. And thank you to everyone who helped with our Drop By Parties in Hanover, Durham, and Chesley. We know the hot chocolate was appreciated on such a wet and chilly night!
