Once again Youth Unlimited is partnering with Monarch Bible Camp for the Haliburton week of camp, Aug 14-18. That means we are in need of people to help out in several ways. Also, new this year we are asking for police checks for those billeting staff.
Here’s how your church can help:
- provide billets for male or female staff
- provide snacks and a dessert for lunch for one day of camp (plan for 50 people)
- provide one dinner for the staff. Your choice of Mon, Tues, Wed, or Thurs
Thank you in advance for your help supporting this important ministry to youth this summer! You may contact me by email or phone to let me know what your church is able to do. Dana McMahon 705-854-1043; email@example.com

There will be a brief congregational meeting after the service on Sunday, July 23rd to elect a member to the Board of Stewards.
Regular Sunday School sessions are over for this year. Over the summer holidays, parents and grandparents are welcome to use the play/craft/book space downstairs with their young children. Also there are activity packs available in the “Sunday School Basket” that you will find on the bench as you enter the foyer from the parking lot. These can be enjoyed by children upstairs during the church service. We will resume Sunday School once again on September 10. Until then, happy summer! Janice Benoit (Sunday School co-ordinator)
