MAKING PRESBYTERIAN CONNECTIONS

Presbyterian Connections
is a new newspaper designed to unite Presbyterians by sharing stories, reflections, interviews and articles from across Canada. By equipping leaders, connecting congregations and missions and facilitating communication, the paper will help strengthen denominational ties across the country. Presbyterians are encouraged to subscribe, and stay connected! After reading the first issue, one reader shared, “This publication is just what we need to keep connected across the country. I especially appreciated the very positive, hopeful and encouraging vibe of this issue. Thank you!”
Presbyterians Sharing helps connect Presbyterians across Canada.



DONATIONS FOR HURRICANE IRMA VICTIMS
Hurricane Irma has struck the Caribbean leaving devastation in its wake. The Presbyterian Church through Presbyterian World Service and Development (PWS&D) has partnered with the ACT Alliance who are present in Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Cuba assessing the situation and coordinating their response to hurricane Irma.  Through the Act Alliance, PWS&D is able to meet immediate needs like food, emergency non-food items, shelter, water and sanitation services.  Those wanting to designate a portion of their offering above and beyond their regular donations can mark the amount on their regular offering envelope or by giving a special donation envelope marked ‘PWS&D – Hurricane Irma’.  Stay tuned for additional information in the coming weeks.




ACCESSIBLE / HANDICAP PARKING

ALL
parking spots on the north side of the church parking lot (including the ministers and secretary spots) are designated for handicap parking on Sunday mornings. We hope this will help those with less mobility to access the church better.


NO PARKING
We have been asked by the owner of the parking lot South of the wine store and east of the public parking lot behind CIBC to let our congregation know that this is private property and for use by his tenants only.
