News and requests:

Thanks to all who helped furnish the manse for our new residents. We are still in need of a bed, a microwave and a dresser and a clothes washer. Please let the office know if you can source these for us.

The Thrift Shop gave all proceeds from Thursday’s sale to the Philippine Relief fund. $594.60 was raised and sent to the relief fund.

Volunteers Needed:
Banff Life (formerly at the Hub) is putting on a dinner for the community on Sunday Dec 15 and urgently needs volunteers .Let’s show our support for this community event (about 250-350 will be served). Help is needed between 3:30 and 9:30pm.

To note:
The United Church through its relief program is providing funding to the Philippines for disaster relief. If you mark your gifts and your envelope with disaster relief- Philippines, it will be forwarded. If you include your name, the government will match all donations. Thank you for your support.

Advent Readers needed:

We need readers for next Sunday and for Christmas Eve as well.

Come one, come all to our annual Christmas potluck this Saturday at 6:00pm. Invite friends and family. We will provide coffee and juice. The rest is up to you.
