Many of our selected missions & fundraisers are generated by local need and personal experiences. Projects are selected each year at our AGM. Although we are a small congregation, we endeavour to make a difference in our local and surrounding communities. Donations and support are gratefully accepted from all!
Community members knit over 70 pairs (and counting) of slippers for donation to families at Ronald McDonald House. Those who do not knit donated wool!
Soap for Hope is a non-profit organization that partners with Disaster Aid Canada. They recycle hygiene amenities (soap, shampoo), linens and tissue products and their mission is to divert landfill waste and provide hygiene essentials to people in need. We have bins set up to accept ongoing donations.
