Thank you - A note of thanks to John Smit for his participation and performance during our Sunday Service today.  

Christmas Bazaar and Tea (December 4th)  - only a month away from our Christmas themed bazaar and tea, the table leads would very much like to know if you will be donating to the pantry and/or to the bake table, if so, please let Jacquie Stinson know what you can contribute. This just helps with our set up.

Kelly Foulds is accepting previously loved jewellery and the sooner she has it the better she is able to get her preparations done. We are also looking for Christmas decor in excellent condition.

Set up will be on Friday, December 3 at 4:00 pm - we will need help with table set-up please. Delivery of all goods between 4:00 and 6:00 pm. If this time does not work for you then please make arrangements with the table leads to receive your donations.

Tickets for the Christmas Tea Room will be available next Sunday, $5.00 for a coffee/tea and you chose three home baked goodies to enjoy. Please advertise, support where you can, and join in the fellowship. 

Christmas Bazaar Raffle Tickets – Books of tickets are still available.  Please consider purchasing a book, or two, for yourself, as well as, selling to family and friends.  Prizes are $300.00 cash, 2 tickets to a Canucks Hockey game and 2 Passes to the Audain Art Museum in Whistler along with a $20 Starbucks Gift Card.  The draw will take place at the Bazaar on Saturday, December 4.  Please give sold ticket stubs and monies to Judy Nicholson prior to the event if possible.  Your support is most appreciated.
