PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY
Last year a number of lovely shawls were made and many were given away to wrap someone in prayer-filled warmth and caring. Some are still available and are at the church ready for gifting, so feel free to take one to pass on to someone you know who needs this special comfort. Please let Rev. Kathi know because she likes to write a note to go with the shawl.
All knitters, of every degree of competency, are welcome to bring their knitting needles and yarn to the church the first Wednesday of every month, from 2 to 4 p.m. There you are invited to create a shawl to support this ministry, or continue working on a personal project, or even just visit with the others and enjoy the fellowship. You are welcome to invite your neighbours and friends. Questions: Contact Sandy Hayes at 905-820-4437.
RENTAL ATTENDANT TEAM-WE NEED YOUR HELP
The rental of space at EMUC by various community groups provides revenue to help us meet our operating expenses. The negotiating and monitoring of contracts is the responsibility of the Finance Committee with the valuable assistance of our Office Administrator. We need help to assist in the set-up for some groups on week days and in the supervision of one time renters on weekends. If we get a team of people who will help, the task will not be onerous. For set-up during the week, we plan to establish a regular schedule with a time commitment of approximately one-half hour.
If you can help please speak to Tina in the office or to Dave Leeder.
CHURCH PEW - AN ANTIQUE FOR YOUR HOME
Do you have a long entrance hallway where you need a sitting bench? Do you need excellent wood for a construction project? We have just the answer.
As you may have noticed, we have not used the church pews on either side of the sanctuary for a number of years. The Leadership Circle would like to create more space by disposing of the pews on the right side. If you are interested in one or more please contact Tina in the office.
FUNDSCRIP is 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 purchased through FUNDSCRIP is donated back to our church.
Order forms for gift cards are available the last Sunday of every month.
next order date is September 29.
Speak to Joanne Hines if you have any questions about the program.
