Thank you from the UCW

Walton Cookie Walk

A huge thank you to everyone who donated such wonderful, delicious cookies for the Cookie Walk, and those who came to purchase their box(es) of cookies to support the U.C.W. U.C.W. raised $1,287.00 and were sold out of cookies in less than 45 minutes.

Thanks to the Junior Youth Group who put all the boxes together, ready for the Cookie Walk.

Thank you

Thank you to everyone who helped make the Senior Social on Thursday, December 3rd, such an enjoyable time for all. Many people contributed to making this time such a huge success, those organizing, setting up, making phone calls, baking, making coffee, serving, cleaning up and especially the more than eighty people who came out to enjoy Oakville Rock “n” Seniors perform. A great time of music, laughter and fellowship shared by all. Thank you, one and all.

White Gift Gratitude

Thank you to all the children, youth and parents involved with the White Gift Service last Sunday, and for the generosity of our Walton Family. As we continue our journey to Christmas, please help us to remember God’s gift of Jesus. God has a Plan for each one of us, let us give thanks and share his hope, peace joy and love this Christmas season.

The Outreach Committee sends you the most heartfelt thank you for your wonder-filled generosity on White Gift Sunday. For just a moment, imagine the children with their beautiful, hopeful eyes taking home a gift they had only have dreamed of and the parents whose spirits rise as they are able to take home a gift for their child and some extra groceries and warm mittens and scarves.

Wesley Urban Ministries will be able to buy needed fresh items with your financial donations as well as some dolls and train sets. We thank you on behalf of those less fortunate for giving them some hope in these trying and difficult times. Out Of Our Abundance, O

SYRIAN REFUGEE ASSISTANCE

VolunteerYou have generously made financial donations to the Syrian Relief Fund of more than $1400.00 to date.  These funds have been channeled through the United Church aid agencies already established for several years on the ground in Jordan and Lebanon; this is a continuous fund and donations can be made through the Church Office or through the Offering Plates. Thank you.

Practical Assistance: Members of the Outreach Committee have been to many meetings and have discussed various ways in which we might participate in helping families already here in Canada or endeavouring to reach Canada. We have a sub-committee to investigate some ways to help, or join up with other organizations. Sponsoring a family is a long term commitment with large in-place financial requirements, but there must be opportunities to help in other ways. There is a sign-up sheet at the Welcome Desk so that she may be in contact with you. It is important to form this sub-committee of congregation members and their friends and family with a desire to assist in this dreadful situation.
