 SHEPHERD’S HOUSE would like to thank you all for your support of the First Annual Shepherd’s House’s Charity Musical Evening. It was a great success, enjoyed by all who came to listen and perform. Financially it was successful beyond our wildest dreams with over $12,500 donated to SH so we can continue feeding and ministering to the marginalised folks of greater Surrey. Several new “Friends of Shepherds House” also signed up on the PAR program committing to regular monthly financial support of SH. We look forward to repeating this event again next year, with a bigger and better program. God is good.

 CAMP DOUGLAS has recently received a donation to work on the forest at Camp. A professional crew will fall any trees that are deemed to be a safety hazard to our campers. We are inviting you to come for a work party on November 3rd in order to clean up after the work that the professional crew will do.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS : : A call to music ministry

Music is an important part of our worship and praise to God. In Ephesians (5:19), Paul encourages us to “Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord.” With support from Presbyterians Sharing, Knox Presbyterian Church in Weyburn, Saskatchewan, is engaging its community through a new music ministry called PALM: peace, art, love and music. Under the PALM banner, the congregation has hosted a variety of music and art-related events for all ages including a youth showcase night, which featured several local youth musicians and included an open-mic segment. Knox has also arranged for local bands, musicians and even puppet show performers to share their gifts at the church’s hot meal gathering, which provides food and entertainment to those living on the margins in their community.
