The church office will be closed from Thursday, August 9th to Monday, August 27th, and will reopen on Tuesday, August 28th. Cathie Collet will be in the office briefly on Thursdays and will answer any emails or phone calls then. Thank you.
As we are attempting to get the church library back to working order, and there are many books missing, could you please check at home for borrowed books that may have inadvertently been shelved with your own books? This could even have been some time ago!
Please put any returned books into the blue bin in the Library. Thank you. Colleen
CHRISTMAS SHOEBOXES FOR SAMARITAN’S PURSE
Although it may seem early to think of Christmas Shoeboxes, this is the time of year to buy some items that fit the shoeboxes. Many of the boxes go to warm climates, and we can buy some items best in the summer. Particularly, these include flip-flops, sun hats, and bandanas. The dollar stores have these. Please purchase to fit children’s sizes for ages 5 to teens. If you want to purchase any quantity of these, you can give them to me to use in the boxes that I fill in the fall using donated funds. Thank you from Colleen.
ABBOTSFORD FOOD BANK
Please remember to keep bringing items for the Food Bank on Sunday mornings throughout July and August, as the summer is often a season of low inventory for the Food Bank. The TOP 5 items needed are soup, peanut butter & jam, pasta sauce, Kraft Dinner and rice. Thank you for your continued support.
This is the time of year when some of our youth may be graduating from elementary school, junior high school, high school, college or university, and we wish to acknowledge and applaud their achievements. If you are graduating, or would like to recognize someone who is, please contact Janet at the church office by Friday, June 8th. Thank you.
