Let's Celebrate in Community

The last two years have made it difficult for us to worship and fellowship in community, but we are so thankful that more opportunities have been available recently .. and we have some exciting plans for more celebration this summer.  We had a great turnout for our July after-church outdoor lunch and we are planning another delicious gathering for Sunday, August 14, immediately after church. Then on Sunday, September 11 we will celebrate the start of a new program year with a whole day of festivities. We will begin at 10:00 am with the worship service, following by lunch, great children's activities ... and more. Come and be part of the celebration as we praise and thank God that we can gather together again.

Prayers and Support for Ukraine

There are several ways to support the people of Ukraine during this difficult and dangerous time. First, and most important, is prayer. Then we are called on to provide practical help as we are able. 

Lutheran Church-Canada has established a fund to assist the Pastors and People of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Ukraine. You can learn more about this fund, including how to donate online at this link. https://www.canadianlutheran.ca/lcc-ukraine-aid-fund/

 Also, Canadian Lutheran World Relief has established an emergency fund to meet the physical needs of those being displaced by the invasion. You can support this effort at this link: https://donate.lwr.org/give/393187/#!/donation/checkout
