JIGSAW PUZZLES: Are you looking for something fun to do while spending time at home? We have a small collection of jigsaw puzzles that can be signed out at the church office during office hours. There are some that are 300, 500 and 600 pieces. If you have some puzzles that you would like to donate to the collection that would be great! To be in line with COVID restrictions, we will hold back returned or new incoming puzzles for 4 days before putting them into circulation. If you are not driving at this time and would like one or two puzzles to work on, you can call Marilyn Instant @ 604-855-9124, Don Blaak @ 604-866-3710 or Marilyn Ingram @ 604-859-7214 and we will drop off a couple at your door. Let’s keep our brains exercised!

Rev. Thomas Kim: We are sad to report that our minister, Reverend Thomas Kim, has been called away this week to be with his family in Calgary.  His father is in palliative care and Thomas needs to support his mother and brothers through this difficult time.  Please pray for peace and strength and remember Lydia, Jane, Joy and Jubilee in this time of “Gip-eun seulpeum” ……Deep Sorrow ….for the Kim family.

If you have any pastoral concerns please call one of the Elders or Rev. Ron Tiessen at 604 220 8702.
