May is Manse Month when we ask the congregations of all three churches to make a donation to the Manse Fund enabling the committee to make needed repairs to the home. This year we are looking at adding railings to some stairways for safety for the little ones and the seniors. Put your donation in your envelope with your number and mark it Manse Fund. Please give this prayerful consideration. Lois Rigney, Chair

Mother’s Day marks the official launch of the Pregnancy Care & Family Support Centre’s annual “Formula for Success” baby bottle campaign. As a 100% donor-supported charity, this annual campaign is our largest fundraising event each year. Baby bottles are now available at your church. Please pick one up, and fill it with coins, bills or a cheque made payable to “PC&FSC” and return the bottle to church on Father’s Day. Don’t forget to fill out the slip that is attached to the bottle so that you can be issued an income tax receipt. We want to thank you so very much for your ongoing prayerful and financial support. Because of YOU, lives are being changed!
