    The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid!  I am here with Good News for you, which will bring great joy to all people.” – Luke 2:10

    As we prepare for Christmas this year, we find that the last day of Advent is also Christmas Eve, Sunday, December 24th.  To help us sort this out in our minds, the first 12 hours we will celebrate as Advent with our 10:30 a.m. service, then from 12:00 noon  to 12:00 a.m., we will celebrate as Christmas Eve with our Family Service at 4:00 p.m. and a traditional Lessons, Carols and Candlelight Service at 7:30 p.m.

    Are you aware:

    1 That in the developing world, girls’ attendance at school is hindered because of a lack of sanitary protection and underwear during menstruation?

    2. At wearing a bra in the developing world not only adds a layer of physical protection for girls but that they are also seen as more confident and therefore less likely to be victimized by males?

    3. That wearing a wearing worn, ill-fitting clothing perpetuates vulnerability, low self-esteem and diminished hope so only new or gently used donated clothing is accepted for the girls and women.

    The S.A.L.S.A group will be collecting donations from the listing below from now until Easter Sunday.  All clothing donations should be sized to fit girls’ ages 6 to 18 years; and made of sturdy, washable materials.   There will be a bin put on the edge of the stage each Sunday for collection.  If you are not able to get them to the church,  please contact Susan Jess at 905-846-8143.
