There are sign up sheets for all of these options on the table in the foyer. If you have any questions, please contact the church office at 780-437-7231.

Winnifred Stewart: Empties to Winn Project
Please feel free to bring some or all of your empty bottles (juice, milk, cans, and other beverage containers) and drop them in our bags. Please support Winnifred Stewart by making provision for this project! Next pick up should be January 4th.  Thank you!

Daytime Lectionary Bible Study: Wednesday afternoons 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. @ the church, starting January 10th, 2018.
This will be a new small group which will meet each week to look at one of the scripture passages set in the lectionary for the following Sunday (usually the one Tim plans to preach on!). This will be an ongoing group and people are welcome to come when they can.

Food, Fun and Fellowship: Friday January 26th, 2018 @ 6pm
This is our ‘new and upgraded’ reboot of Spaghetti Church (a monthly event for families with children that we used to run on Saturday afternoons). The event will begin with a supper, followed by a child-friendly time of singing, Bible teaching and prayer. Some activity (crafts, games etc.) will follow, and the evening will close with hot chocolate and a candle prayer time. This will be held on the last Friday of each month. A sign up sheet will be out next week. For more info, email Melanie at

Life in the Eucharist: A Children’s Communion Program.
During Lent (i.e. February and March) our church will be running a 'Life in the Eucharist' program of communion education for our kids. This program was designed to be used with children between the ages of seven and nine, but has been found to be useful one or two years either side of that as well. If you would like to participate in this program, please let us know by January 12th so we can order materials for everyone. The materials will be funded by our Reach Campaign monies.

Please check out our monthly announcement sheet for more upcoming events. If you have not received a copy or have changed your email address, please update your email with Tim or Melanie. Extra copies are available on the table at the back of the church.
