MISSION CAPSULE: When families are able to form safe and nurturing relationships, meet their basic needs and lift each other up, it can have a significant impact on a country’s well-being and development. On the International Day of Families, we reflect on the importance of responding to families facing hunger, poverty and injustice across the globe. The compassionate youth at Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Beaconsfield, QC know how important it is to empower vulnerable families to achieve their full potential. The group filled a piggy bank with $144.00 for PWS&D Farming for the Future Sunday School Challenge, which equips rural families in Guatemala with seeds, tools and training to improve their food security and nutrition.

MONDAY, MAY 14th, 2018 - Theology on Tap will resume this evening to begin “Leaving Christianity” by Brian Clarke and Stuart MacDonald – at the Beacher Café.
