Food Bank

 This month we continue to collect items for Knight’s Table.  When we made deliveries during the summer months they shared that supplies are very low– a common occurrence during this period of the year.  (A special thank you to Gloria Martin for helping us on deliveries over the summer.)

Any protein items like tuna, salmon, tinned meats or stews are high on their wish list. Personal items such as family size shampoo, conditioner and hand soap are appreciated as well as laundry soap etc.

Please remember that if you would prefer to provide a monetary donation, (and thus receive a tax receipt through St Barts) you may make cheques out to St Bartholomew’s United Church and note on the bottom of the cheque that it is for Knight’s Table.

Pass It On news

We had one VERY LARGE sorting session during the summer when we prepared the following:

AND at time of writing we had another sorting planned for this past Thursday, the 6th.  LOTS of donations to be sorted…  Please remember we are ALWAYS looking for new volunteers…  Our next sort is planned for Sept 20th, 8:45, Balsdon Hall.

USHERS & GREETERS NEEDED

We need 4 ushers & 2 greeters each Sunday. Please sign up on the board in Balsdon Hall.

Thank you,

Liz Potts

Men’s Coffee Hour

Please note that the men’s coffee hour has resumed at the church on Wednesdays 10-11am.

 

USHERS & GREETERS NEEDED!

The ushers and greeters at St. Bart’s are dedicated to making you feel welcome. Our ushers and greeters are available at every worship service to help people find their seats, answer questions, remove distractions, pass out or collect materials and, of course, offer a friendly smile and a warm handshake. We are always in need of more ushers and greeters, so if you are interested in helping, please sign up in Balsdon Hall today!

Canada Christian Academy—Requesting Volunteer Readers

Mrs. Deepa Patro, principal of Canada Christian Academy, has asked whether anyone in the congregation would be interested in volunteering to read or listen to young children read.

If interested, please see Jeff or Applyen for an introduction.

Thank you!
