Thank Yous! 
A huge thank you to Patricia McIver and her Christmas Baskets Team for serving 31 families in our community this year, as well as to everyone who made donations and helped out.   

Many thanks to Bill & Denise Warren, Irene & John Langevin, Suzanne King, Kathleen Rowe, and all who assisted them in decorating for Christmas both inside and outside the church!  Your time and efforts are greatly appreciated!

Toys for the Christ Child 
Once again this year at Christmas, we encourage children to bring gifts to Jesus at the Crib. This is an excellent opportunity for parents to teach their child a valuable lesson of sharing. It would be appreciated if the gifts are marked boy or girl and the age.
