September 2017 We had lots of children join us for our opening Fall service in September. All of the children and a few of the adults brought their bookbags or their satchels to be blessed. The talk for this service was about climate change, focusing on the story of Jesus calming the storm from Matthew 8: 23-27 and the story of Moana, who risked everything to restore calm to her island and people. We discussed ways that we could help the earth and all those who live here.
October 2017. We gathered for a Thanksgiving celebration - a traditional Eucharist with involvement of the children during the service.
November 2017 The team and the children explored more about the Season of Creation focusing on The Diversity of Life
Christmas Pageant 2016 was held on December 11, 2016. The church filled with families and friends and lots of children, all of whom had the opportunity to participate in the presentation of "The 'Twases of Christmas" by Mitch Townley. This no-fuss, no-rehearsal pageant was a wonderful way to involve all ages in the telling of the story of the birth of Christ.
The pictures below tell the story of our presentation from the preparations before the service to the Fellowship enjoyed by all in the Hall following the service. The food and the presents that were brought in by the children will be going to the local Food Bank. We have been blessed indeed!
