THURSDAY, JULY 19th, 2018 - “I have long thought that the aging process could be slowed down if it had to work it’s way through Congress.” George Bush

SUNDAY, JULY 22nd, 2018 - Join us for morning worship at 10:00 - Dr. Tory Hoff leading. This morning’s service will feature an interpretation of the Book of Job with several readers. Rev. Katherine McCloskey is on a reading week

MISSION CAPSULE: Last winter, the caring Sunday School class at St. John’s Presbyterian Church in Toronto hosted a pancake lunch in support of PWS&D. After reading a short play to illustrate PWS&D’s mission and vision, the children invited guests to feast on pancakes and syrup, yogurt and fruit as they passed around a donation basket. “St. John’s Sunday School pancake lunch raised over $900.00 for PWS&D,” shares Laurie McGugan, the event organizer. “We were happy that we got so many people out!” Whether saving pennies, launching a campaign or holding a fundraising lunch, generous support from Presbyterians across Canada sustains programs that are building a more sustainable, compassionate and just world.

NOTE: Beaches will be holding Wednesday evening services during August at 7:00. These will be in addition to our regular Sunday morning services.

We still need some people to sign up to cut the grass and/or supply cold drinks Sunday mornings. There are sign up sheets in the Narthex or speak to Elisabeth.
