Welcome to: Rev. Douglas Powell who will be leading us in Service on Sunday.


Thrift Store: Beginning this Saturday, May 10th the Thrift Shop hours will be changed from Tuesday to Friday to Wednesday through Saturday.  This is to facilitate the sale of craft and souvenir items which have been donated and will appeal to tourists rather than Thrift Shop patrons.  The proceeds of this sale will go in part to support the Church and the other half will support the Canadian Food Grains Bank.

For this special sale we will need 2 volunteers from the church each Saturday to run the Craft and Souvenir table which will be set up like the Nearly New table from Rummage Sales, items being chosen and paid for at the table.  There is a sign-up sheet in the Lonsdale Lounge.  Please sign up for a few Saturdays to support this special initiative!

Banff Men’s Conference: The United Church of Canada invites all men on the Christian journey to join then for Faith, Community, Connection, Discovery and Fun at a series of workshops. October 12-14 at the Banff Centre, for further information please see flyer in Lonsdale Lounge and find a registration form attached. For more information visit: banffmen.org
