MISSION CAPSULES: Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... support Flemingdon Gateway Mission. Serving children, youth and their families in Toronto's Flemingdon Neighbourhood, this mission is working to build resilience in children and youth. Homework support, leadership development, health and nutrition programs, structured activities and sports are enabling them to break through the poverty in which they live. Participants find love and support, gain leadership skills, overcome bullying and make lifelong friends. The Toronto District School Board has chosen the Mission's "Vision of Hope" summer camp as a placement site for summer students. Youth leaders have been mission speakers at congregations. Director Paulette Brown shares, "We are excited that the Mission is building church-community partnership and offering possibilities for the development of young leaders who are equipped to lead in Canada's diverse cultural racial and religious society."

SUNDAY, MAY 26th, 2013 - Beaches will be visited by a team from our Presbytery. They will be available to answer questions, listen while we share our joys, our challenges and our goals. They will bring with them short surveys and they will want to talk to us after service. If you are part of one of Beaches committees or ministries, it is especially important that you take part.
