MISSION CAPSULES: Presbyterians Sharing ... is the national church fund that supports the overall mission and ministry of The Presbyterian Church in Canada. Congregations commit to raising an accepted allocation each year. The budget for 2013 is $8 million.

Presbyterian World Service & Development is the PCC's development and relief agency. PWS&D raises funds directly from congregations and individuals and through government grants - over and above gifts to Presbyterians Sharing. International Ministries mission personnel, funded through Presbyterians Sharing, often work with PWS&D partners.

SUNDAY, MAY 19th, 2013 - Join us for morning worship, when we will be visited by a team from our Presbytery. If you are part of a committee it is important that you be there AND if you are not part of a committee it is important that you be there. Bring a lunch as they will want to talk to the congregation after service. This is an important event that happens every three or four years.
