LANGLEY PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH WILL RECEIVE our regularly scheduled visit from Presbytery on May 27. Questionnaires were distributed two weeks ago. Those with email addresses also received the questionnaire via email.  Those who are responding via paper copy, please return to the office by May 21 so we can forward them to the visitation committee well before they meet with us.  Those who are responding via email, please send to Pam Wong (Lead) pamwong76@yahoo.ca and Rev Bob Garvin garvins@telus.net. by May 21. All fill out part A OR part B of the form. Thank you in advance for engaging in this important visit by completing the questionnaire. 

PLEASE MARK SATURDAY JUNE 10TH. 9:30 – NOON on your calendar. There will be refreshments. Property will be spreading new bark mulch all around the church, as well as doing an outside cleanup such as weeding, deadheading the rhododendron, sweeping sidewalks, raking or anything that needs a bit of attention.  The church has a leaf blower, a grass trimmer and a few garden tools. For the bark mulch we could use a couple of wheelbarrows, shovels, rakes and lots of willing hands and bodies. Come and help us spruce up the church grounds. Call Louise McAree. 604-530-6097 if you would like to help. Thank you.

THE ANNUAL CAMP DOUGLAS FUNDRAISING DINNER will be an Un-dinner this year. No need to check if you’re free, think about what to wear, worry about your elbows on the table, or not being able to read the small print on the menu. We hope that you will consider making a donation to Camp Douglas this year without attending an event. This way, 100% of your donation goes directly to supporting the Camp ministry. This fundraiser does not include a real dinner, but your support for Camp Douglas is very real. A tax receipt will be issued for all donations over 20$. Please cheque to Camp Douglas or donate online at: https://www.canadahelps.org/dn/4495

PCC MISSION MOMENTS Hope lives here! Presbyterians Sharing helps Toronto’s ARISE Ministry offer outreach, case management and pastoral care to victims of human trafficking and people involved in the sex trade. As part of this ministry, the Rev. Deb Rapport sets out once a week at midnight with one or two others to chat with women they meet and find out if they are ok. They hand out bags filled by volunteers with things a woman might want – including hand sanitizer, tissues, lip gloss, chocolate and emergency numbers – and even more important, a sign that someone cares. Deb shares, “ARISE Ministry is where hope lives! What a profoundly awe-inspiring experience to see hope take hold in someone’s life. Please pray for ARISE as we continue to plant, tend and care for the seeds of hope growing in the lives of individuals involved in the sex trade.” Presbyterians Sharing shines a light in the darkness
