Each day we will be posting a new photo on our Facebook page and asking you to suggest a scripture verse or inspirational quote that speaks to you when you view the image. We will choose one of the inspirations and post the picture and inspiration on our Webpage. The quotes have all been great so far and the choice has been tough. We look forward to more people joining in and making the choice even harder. We love to see different pictures from people! Please send along any picture you have taken that you would love to have posted. Also, if you can’t think of a scripture or inspirational quote, even a word about how it makes you feel! We love participation! Use these as a daily prayer, a thought for the day, or a blessing in the moment.
Join us on January 16, 2021 for a movie and discussion afternoon 1pm. We will be watching “The Hate U Give” and will be following with a discussion on the movie and how it relates to the racism we are seeing not only today but building up from the past. We will also discuss how we can make a difference in our community. Due to Covid-19, there will be a limit of 20 people, please contact the office (902-462-1818) to reserve your spot.
In gratitude for your generosity over the years and in recognition of our “interesting” times, the Altar Guild will not be collecting donations towards flowers for this Christmas. Instead we invite you to consider forwarding your generosity to the PWRDF Campaign for a donkey and to the Christmas Outreach program.
The Altar Guild is always grateful for your support of our ministry over the years and we choose this year to support your remembrances by purchasing poinsettias on your behalf from the flower fund. As many of your remembrances have remained the same over the years, we will use last year’s bulletin. If you wish to make a change/ addition or to be reminded of what was there please email Carole Aylard and she will make those changes for you. firstname.lastname@example.org
Several2021 church calendars are still available for $7.00. If you would like a calendar, please call Brenda Tucker at 902-462-7006. She will ensure that you get it.
Our PWRDF project this year will be to raise money to buy donkeys! In Kenya they are used for carrying water …….precious water from a well, like the one we bought last year!
Some families still have to travel a distance to get to the wells. A donkey can carry four times the weight that a person can, so they are often given to older people to make the journey easier. Your gift will go towards providing a strong-backed donkey to shoulder cans of fresh, clean water from the well to home.
Perhaps you’d like to “pin a tail on a donkey” by making a donation! You can donate by cash or a cheque in an envelope to be mailed to the church or dropped off at the church. Donations can also be made online http://www.churchofsaintandrew.ca/donations/ where you just click on FUND and scroll to PWRDF. Look for more information as to how donkeys enrich many lives next week!
