Tarek is fluent in English and has an experience in editing and translation. We anticipate that his transition to life in Canada will be a smooth one.

Preparations are underway to find and furnish appropriate accomodations.
Tarek and the Nadaff family have both expressed their gratitude for your generosity in supporting their sponsorship.
BUY A CHAIR CAMPAIGN
Recently 100 chairs were purchased for the Lower Hall to replace those that were in a bad state of repair. We have had inquiries from individuals wanting to donate funds to help cover the cost of the chairs.
The cost of each chair was $65.00. If you wish to make a donation, you are invited to place it on the offering plate, clearly designated for the chairs.
We are continuing with FUNDSCRIP, an innovative fundraising program that asks you to purchase gift cards in order to pay for regular items you buy every month. A percentage of the cards we purchase through FUNDSCRIP is donated back to our church. Order forms for gift cards will be available the last Sunday of every month. The next order date is this Sunday, June 24, 2018. There will be no FUNDSCRIP order in July. Please see the display board at the back of the church or speak to Joanne Hines if you have any questions about the program.
WHAT TO DO WITH USED GIFT CARDS?
Erin Mills Town Centre has a box beside the Guest Service desk where you can deposit your depleted, used gift cards. You may also place then in a small box on the Visitors table beside the photocopier room for those who would prefer to leave their old cards at church. Mary Anna Williams will ensure they are dropped off at the Town Centre.
The program is run by Terracycle.ca. If you have any questions please speak to Mary Anna.
