The choir will begin practicing on a new day. Wednesday, September 6th will be the first practice of the fall season and will begin at 8:00 p.m. If you are interested in joining us, please speak with Jayne Thomson.
ClearView Church in Oakville will be hosting another 13 week session of GriefShare this fall starting on Monday, September 6th to November 29th from 7-9 p.m. The event is held once per week every Monday evening. GriefShare is a grief support group with strong Christian roots. The weekly sessions focus on expert presentations in video format followed by discussions led by a facilitator. A workbook with weekly exercises, to be followed up with discussions at the next session, intermeshes superbly with the video presentations thereby encouraging the participant to move forward “from mourning to joy” (GriefShare’s motto).

We would like to webcast the services into the nursery, parlour and Sunday school classes, so we would be grateful for the donation of 3 or 4 LED TVs.
Thank you to everyone who helped out at the Camp in Your Own Backyard (CYOB). This year’s camp was held at Trafalgar Presbyterian Church and was facilitated by counsellors from Camp Cairn.
