It has come to our attention that many people are either away or not well so we have decided to cancel the Faith, Fun and Fellowship Potluck on Tuesday February 2nd and focus on the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper on February 9th instead! There are two sittings, 5:00 & 6:00 pm. Sign up sheet is in the foyer!!

We would like to invite you and your children to join us for Spaghetti Church on Saturday January 30th, 2016 from 4pm to 6pm. Spaghetti Church is church for families that enjoy a more informal, activity-centered and community-oriented way of worshipping together from time to time. It typically includes a craft or other activity time, a family-friendly worship and teaching time, and a simple meal (hence the spaghetti!). Please note that this is not something you can drop your kids off for; it is intended to be about families worshipping together.
We do have a signup sheet policy as food is prepared for all who will be coming. Spaghetti Church is only possible because the people who come volunteer to help out with the various tasks.

Tuesday February 9th – 5-7pm  Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper; two sittings, 5:00 & 6:00 pm.
Wednesday February 10th – 7:30 pm Ash Wednesday Holy Communion & Ashes

What does it mean to live as a follower of Jesus when I go to work? What tensions do I experience between my work and my faith? What opportunities do I see to serve God there? How can I live more consistently as a Christian in my place of work? And why is this important?
