Our Annual Christmas Eve tradition of sending our offering during our evening services to 3 worthy causes, one international, one national, and one local continues this year. Out offering will be going to support the Sheepfold a home for children with severe disabilities in Bethlehem, the Sandy Saulteaux Centre, a theological training centre for Indigenous Ministry within the United Church of Canada, and to the Knox-Met Refugee Support Fund which supports the sponsorship of refugees here in the city. There will be special envelopes in the bulletins at our 7pm and 10:30pm service. These envelopes can be found in the Narthex at the 10:30am service. Contributions to the Knox-Met operating fund can be made through regular envelopes or the visitor envelopes in the pews.
