OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD – Once again, we are helping to send filled shoeboxes to children around the world. You can participate in one of two ways – by filling your own box or by donating either by cheque or online.  Boxes and brochure envelopes are available at the back of the church. There is also a display explaining how the money is used, what process Samaritan’s Purse uses in distributing your gifts and to which countries Canadian shoeboxes are being sent.  Our collection date is Sunday Nov. 12. Please note, the suggested donation per box is now $10. If you have any questions please see Debbie Margueratt.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS Encouragement through mentoring

Have you ever found yourself stuck and in need of good advice? Thanks to Presbyterians Sharing, ministers and ministries across Canada are receiving the encouragement and guidance they need to thrive through a variety of coaching networks. Programs such as the New Church Development Coaches and the Social Mentor Network bring direct support to ministries by matching them with trained coaches who provide guidance and support. Whether getting a new church start off the ground or navigating the challenges of managing a church-based outreach mission, coaches help leadership teams hear where God is calling them and equip them with the tools needed to follow God’s call. In 2018 Canadian Ministries will pilot two new coaching programs in the area of evangelism and congregational renewal!
