A heartfelt thank you to all of our people who so willingly worked with us at the Christmas Luncheon & Bazaar. It was a great opportunity to share in fellowship amongst ourselves, and also with so many of our guests who look forward to visiting with us each year. If you baked a pie, served, decorated or set tables, helped prepare the delicious meal, or did dishes, please know; we could not have done it without YOU! All together, we raised $5,023.50! Thank you to all who attended, assisted, and planned the event!
A suggestion arising from the Sunday School curriculum this fall as part of the “Be Good Caretakers of God’s Creation” focus was to make a collection of new, warm socks and small items that could be useful to the homeless of our community. The children came up with suggestions for small hygiene items like soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, comb, hairbrush, lip balm, small shampoo and/or hand sanitizer; as well as individual snack items, water bottles or juice packs. We will be collecting the items to be stuffed into the socks for the children to put together and donate at our White Gift Service. There will be a collection in the Sunday school area if any of the congregation would like to contribute items starting at the beginning of November. Feel free to add ideas to the children’s list!
St. John’s Youth is hosting a Chicken Dinner and Silent Auction at the Royal Canadian Legion in Cornwall on November 20th from 4:30 to 6:30 PM. Tickets are $14.00, and it gets you a quarter chicken dinner with all the fixings and a donation to the Youth of St. John’s Church. A silent auction will also be taking place during the event, which will feature many wonderful items to take home as gifts for yourself or for loved ones. Tickets are available during office hours at St. John’s Presbyterian Church, as well as after the service on Sunday November 6th and 13th, and at the Legion Branch 297. Take out containers are available for those unable to stay for the dinner. Advanced ticket sales are preferred so we know how many meals to prepare. Come and support the young people of our community!
