Dates for your calendar

Sunday Feb 24th – Family Fun Get your snow pants on and join us at 1 pm for an afternoon of tobogganing. We’ll meet at the church, and if there’s not enough snow, we’ll have an afternoon of boardgames – bring your favourite!

Tuesday Mar 5th – Save the date for our annual Pancake Supper. Tickets are on sale now during coffee hour, and all proceeds go towards PWS&D and their ongoing work on food security in Africa.
 

Sunday Apr 28th – Join us as the kids present a special Easter story.

Things to know

Calling all budding artists! The Presbyterian Church is looking for kids art work for their 2020 calendar. They are looking for drawings and paintings of our church, church events, worship and anything else that inspires you to create! You can submit hi-res images to presbyterian.ca/artwork , or you can mail them originals (the address is also on that website). The deadline has been extended to March 22nd.

Are you thinking about summer camp already? The Presbytery of Oak Ridges has 2 camperships available to help children attend camp, especially those who haven’t gone to camp before, and are interested in arts or music camps. If you would like more information, please let me know.  The deadline for applying for the campership is March 1.

Just a Thought

It can often be hard to know what to do when our kids are hurting or a friend is in need, Ginger Hughes, author of the ‘No Mama’s Perfect‘ blog shared this, and I wanted to share it with you. Hughes says

Sometimes we wonder how we can help. We ask if there is anything we could possibly do to make a difference in this world. We feel unqualified or incapable of making a lasting impact. But what if we are wrong? What if what this world needs most it…. A warm smile, a kind word, a gentle answer, a listening ear, a small act of kindness, a warm embrace, a moment of our time, and a reminder of God’s unfailing love. We can make a difference…more than we ever thought possible.”
 
Have a wonderful week, and remember that no one is too small or unimportant to make a difference.
