On October 1st at 6 pm we will hold a business meeting to discuss what mission project(s) the church would like to support. We invite all church members to come with their ideas and present them to the church during this business meeting. More details on how to prepare will follow soon.
Just a quick reminder that we are still collecting items to send to Haiti. The trailer will be picked up no later than October 19 so there is not much time left. What we particularly need is school supplies, which you are welcome to directly give to Carolle.
Items we are also looking for include
- learning materials for schools
- computers (desktops, laptops)
- mattresses for dormitories
- rugs and toys for pre-schoolers
- bed linens
- cafeteria items (tables, chairs)
- medical equipment (e.g. wheelchairs)
- exercise equipment
- musical instruments
- kitchen utensils
- tool boxes
You can also contribute to the cost of filling and shipping the container by marking you donation as “Haiti Mission Project”.
Mark your calendars for our business meeting on June 25 at 6 pm. Please make every effort to attend. Join us beforehand for pizza at 5 pm.
We will be reviewing the following:
- 2016-2017 finances
- Budget for 2017-2018
- TAS subsidy and credit recommendation
- Plans to support a mission project
