Hello Pancake Eaters, Bakers and Cookie Makers

The annual Shrove Tuesday PANCAKE SUPPER will take place on Tuesday, February 9th, 2016. This year we have chosen to support the Special Olympics Swim Team – Oakville with our Free Will Offering – you will have heard both athletes and parents speak on Outreach Sunday on January 17th and you will have heard the jingle of their many medals – champions all. The athletes, coaches and parents are very excited about attending our Pancake Supper.

Deserts needed!! We are aware that requests are many, but, if you could bake an extra dessert one day when you are baking, or make a special effort to bake something, for Tuesday, February 9th, it will be of great help to us. Contact of the Outreach Committee, or drop by the Kitchen on the day of the Supper after 2:00 p.m. Thanks as always.

P.S. Gluten-free pancakes are available, but we request advance notice.


 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.
