Weekly Prayer Cycle: Our Kitchen Volunteers

Can You Help?
From time to time members of our congregation would really benefit from a ride to church. Sometimes this is because of age, illness or giving up of a driver’s license or car. In order for us to be able to respond in a caring and effective way when the need arises, and if you are willing and able to provide such a service, please leave your name with the church office or e-mail us.
Some of you are already offering these rides to fellow members of our church, and this is very much appreciated.
Thank you very much!

ICPM (Inner City Pastoral Ministry)
Our March 2009 ministry fundraiser ended on June 30th and we have surpassed our goal of $5,000. To date we have received $6,110.00. Thanks for your generosity . . . for giving over and above our goal.

Gardening Volunteers
As we all know, the flower beds have been beautifully taken care of over the years. However, we are down to two talented gardeners - Julie Holmes and Doug Harris. One more volunteer who can handle the heavier work of turning hardened soil is needed. If you can spare your time and talents, please contact Tony Willacy.

Summer Schedule Notes
• Tuesday evening Bible Study is over for the summer.
• Women’s Thursday morning Bible Study will complete their study on July 9th and then resume in the fall.

Administrative Assistant Position
Beryl has been filling in during Jodi’s absence; however, due to Jodi’s conflicting study schedule at the University of Alberta this fall, she is unable to resume these duties. Therefore, we need to fill this position as soon as possible. If you, or someone you know, is interested in learning more about this opportunity, please contact Beryl at the church or at home. Copies of the job description and responsibilities have been posted on the bulletin board downstairs. Please feel free to take one!

Just how would you demonstrate to others that you are true disciples and followers of Christ except by feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, sheltering the poor, comforting the sick and imprisoned, washing feet and showing love for one another?’ Leonhard Schiemer, AD 1527.
