We now have enough yogurt containers but are desperate for cereal boxes for this year's VBS crafts. If you are able to donate these to our VBS program please drop off your items in the marked bins in the classroom across from the Family Washroom.

 

VBS Decor Prep Volunteers Needed - With VBS only a month away, we are looking for volunteers to help us create decorations for our Fun Factory!

OUTREACH UPDATE

 

ROYAL CITY LIFE CENTRE:

Walking with people who are grieving is both a gift and a burden. Death has a way of bringing people together or tearing them apart. It reminds us of our frailty, and helps us to seek the eternal. 

Over the past few months we have journeyed through 5 funerals with guests from the Life Centre, as well as a number of deaths due to fentanyl overdose. The support of our partners allows us to be present in these times of pain and to share the love of Christ as we enter into their suffering.  

The ongoing work of the Life Centre is about "connection"... with our guests, our volunteers and God. It is this ongoing connection that gives us opportunity to be present in the times of trials. When storms come, this becomes a lifeline. 

Thank you for helping to create lifelines for our guests!
