Gift Card Sale – Now’s your chance to  “shop ‘til you drop” and support Walton’s Ministry and Mission at the same time, with our Gift Card Sale.
Here’s how it works:
Many generous businesses and individuals have donated gift cards to the church for local businesses, services, restaurants, and experiences. We have also received a number of discounted tickets for the Stratford Festival to sell as a fundraiser. The church office is selling these cards and tickets at face value, with all proceeds going to support our General Fund, on a first-come, first- served basis.
At each entrance/exit of Walton, there is a paper list of gift cards. Please pick up a copy and take it home if you wish. Read it at your leisure, and select the card(s) or tickets of your choice from the list and contact the church office, Tuesday through Friday to arrange payment and pickup/delivery time, office@waltonmemorial.com or  905-827-1643. It’s that easy!  Thank you to our generous donors and purchasers for your support.

Children and youth are invited to view this week’s virtual Sunday School lesson online. This week we’re learning how to feed sheep. Yes, really!

Walton’s prayer chain is open. Confidential prayers requests can be sent to office@waltonmemorial.com

If you need Rev. Jim for a pastoral emergency, please email him directly at jamescgillwuc@gmail.com
