NOTE: We are saddened to report that Arlene Scuka died earlier this week after a long struggle will her illness. She was so much a part of Beaches and who we are as a congregation, she will be missed greatly. At her request there will be no funeral but the family will hold a Memorial service later in the spring. The family have requested that memorial gifts go to Beaches Presbyterian Church or Toronto General Hospital. There is to be a graveside service with the family tomorrow afternoon. Go gently, go dancing into the light....

MISSION CAPSULES: Nova Scotia Korean Mission in Halifax, N.S. is the only PCC ministry at this time in Atlantic Canada that is working with Korean immigrants and students.

The church's choir recently participated in a gospel music night at Calvin Presbyterian Church in Halifax, singing in both Korean and English.

More from Children about Angels:

Angels have a lot to do and they keep very busy. If you lose a tooth an angel comes in through your window and leaves money under your pillow. Then when it gets cold, angels go south for the winter.

Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son, who is a very good carpenter. Jared, age 8

My angel is my grandma who died last year. She got a big head start on helping me while she was still down here on earth. Ashley, age 9

Some of the angels are in charge of helping heal sick animals and pets. and if they don't make the animals get better, they help the child to get over it. Vicki age 8

What I don't get about angels is why, when someone is in love, they shoot arrows at them. Sarah age 7

Have a good week - MB
