ABBOTSFORD FOOD BANK: Carole Sookdeo will come to the church once a month to collect the food bank donations from the blue bins. She will collect them on Friday, October 30th and on Friday, November 27th between 10 AM and 12 NOON, so please bring your donations in prior to each of these dates. Thank you.
CARIBOO PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH CHRISTMAS MINISTRY: If you would like to help us in our continuing partnership with the Cariboo Presbyterian House Church Ministry as they serve the people in the Ndazkoh and Lhoosk’uz areas, Jon and Shannon Wyminga will be coming to the coast at the end of October to shop for their Sunday School Kids. Please make your donation payable to Calvin Presbyterian Church and mark the offering envelope as “Cariboo Church Christmas Ministry”. Thank you.
CHRISTMAS SHOEBOXES FOR SAMARITAN’S PURSE: The Christmas shoeboxes from Samaritan’s Purse are available at the front door. The donation of $10 per box for shipping expenses can be put in an envelope and placed in the top of the box. More boxes and pamphlets with guidelines are on order. Please indicate age and gender of child for whom you are shopping on the top of the box. Options are ages 2-4, 5-9 or 10-14. If you wish me to complete a box for you (as many folks have done in the past) as it is difficult for you to get out and about, please place $30 in an envelope, marked Shoeboxes, in the offering plate. You will receive a tax receipt at the end of the year. The funds will be forwarded to me to complete a shoebox for you. National Collection Week is November 16th – 22nd.
Thank you. Margaret Houtby
