SLEEPOVER: A sleep over for the children of the congregation will be held on Friday, June 24th beginning at 6:30pm at Sackville United. We will have a fun night of playing at the park, games, crafts, campfire songs with treats, and breakfast in the morning. Parents are asked to pick up the children at 9am on Saturday. All children are welcome to attend and participate. If children under 5 would like to stay overnight, they are asked to have a parent stay overnight with them. Children are asked to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, a stuffy, and a toothbrush. We are looking forward to celebrating the end of the year with the children. Parents of children wishing to attend are asked to send Mora an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org indicating their child’s interest in attending.
“DATES” WITH THE INREACH COMMITTEE: The newly formed In-reach needs your help in achieving our purpose, which is to be ‘there’ for our members and adherents in various ways. One of our mandates is to recognize special events such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, and other celebratory times in the lives of our congregation.This is where you can help. We will have a perpetual calendar on which we will record the applicable dates. Could you please pass on the appropriate information to Diane Fullerton? Her email is email@example.com or you can phone at 536 3749.
In addition, if you know of someone going through sickness, losses or other difficulties, we would be very happy to arrange visits if so desired. Once again, we ask your help in ensuring we are informed of these situations.
Thank-you in advance for your interest in, and support of, our efforts.
