SUNDAY, AUGUST 25th, 2019 - Join us for morning worship at 10:00 – elder Heather Crisp will be leading. Katherine is up north fishing with the boys……..AND please be aware, the narthex floors are being refinished, we cannot walk on them until well into next week SO, we will have to enter through the back door, from the driveway, and go right into the sanctuary from the back hall. THERE WILL NO ACCESS FROM EITHER OF THE FRONT DOORS ON GLEN MANOR. Because of this we will have no access to the kitchen or the two washrooms in the narthex. This means there will be no Sunday School, no refreshments following the service and we will have to use the washroom in the back hall…. AND IT MIGHT BE A TAD DUSTY ….. but we can still worship. The floors look great and it will be worth it!

MISSION CAPSULE: When her niece fell ill, Zenabu was accused by her sister of bewitching the little girl. Belief in witchcraft continues to be widespread in Ghana, and those accused can face relentlessly cruel treatment. Zenabu feared for her safety, until she found sanctuary at the PWS&D – supported Gambaga Camp – a refuge for women who have been accused of witchcraft. Zenabu has been trained in soap making and earns an income by selling her handiwork. She enjoys the self-reliance that comes with the chance to sell her goods. Even as PWS&D works with communities to help them see that misfortune is not a result of witchcraft, this support is giving women like Zenabu the chance to lead safe and meaningful lives.
