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.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS A Presbyterian gathering

This Sunday, Presbyterians from across Canada are meeting in Kingston, ON for our annual General Assembly. The chosen theme is Jesus Christ – the same yesterday, today, forever, based on Hebrews 13:8. Commissioners from across Canada will worship together and discuss, debate and vote on matters that affect our denomination. A first-time commissioner from last year shares, “I gained extensive new knowledge of the extent of our denomination’s work and mission. It was energizing to meet Presbyterians from across the country and to feel part of something beyond my congregation.” Please pray for those gathering, that they might find renewal and unity in Christ. Presbyterians Sharing brings Presbyterians together at General Assembly.
