FOOD BANK SUNDAY is the last Sunday of each month. Donations gratefully received at the Connections Centre. Envelopes for monetary donations are at the Welcome Centre. Cheques can be made out to "Fundy Interchurch Food Bank”.

PRAYER ADVOCATE MINISTRY- This ministry is applicable to you if you are a parent with a youth in Grades 4-8 or if you are an adult (prayer advocate) who would be willing to pray consistently for one of these youth.   As parents with now grown children, we know the effect that prayer has had in their lives. We believe that our children face challenges at school, at home and with friends and for them to know that there is another adult in our church family who cares about them and is willing to pray for them, can be both comforting and encouraging.  The prayer advocates will receive a prayer card with a photo of your child, their name, age, grade and birthday on it. For those currently part of this ministry, we are seeing the need to update the cards, so parents, please forward all current information to arlj.jamieson@gmail.com . Also, if you would like a recent photo on their card, please send that along as well.  We will process new cards and get them to your child's prayer advocate.   We are privileged to be able to facilitate this ministry for you and look forward to hearing from you soon.
