MISSION CAPSULES: Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... support Toronto's Nigerian Presbyterian Mission. The church offers both Sunday and midweek worship services, Bible studies, men's and women's groups, youth fellowship and prayer meetings. Worship services are conducted in English so that they are accessible to both Nigerians and others who might prefer an African style of worship. The mission is helping integrate Nigerian Presbyterian immigrants into their new lives in Canada, providing them with a supportive faith community during an often difficult adjustment period.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 7th, 2012 - Thanksgiving ... Our Thanksgiving service will be intergenerational and will include activities for children and adults and include a time to bring offerings forward. (The offerings will include foodstuffs brought from home .)

How come abbreviated is such a long word?

Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

Why do they call it a TV set when you only have one?

Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?

Have a good week - MB
