Memorial Flowers: The Congregational Life Team is requesting flowers/plants(No lilies please due to allergies) to assist with decorating the sanctuary for Easter.

Please bring your flowers/plants to the church on Thursday April 18th either from 10-11 a.m or 7-8 pm. We would appreciate you taking your flowers home following the Easter service. If you have any questions please contact Gerry Adlington at 519-245-4708.


          At our Annual Meeting Patti Krista, the Chair of the Finance Team thanked all the other Teams for paring down their expenses and the congregation is enthused with the programs planned for 2019.

          Our General Fund needs a boost and Patti encouraged the congregation at our annual meeting to be thinking of some fun Fund raisers for 2019.

          Please keep in mind that our envelope donations to the General Fund keep our programs going in the church, keep the church in good repair, and offer many occasions for outreach to our surrounding community.

                   We appreciate all who donate their

gifts of time, treasure, and talents.
