November 30: World AIDS Day

The Presbyterian Church in Canada, through Presbyterian World Service & Development, continues to support HIV and AIDS programs that fight stigma and discrimination, teach and equip people to prevent the spread, and provide home based care and medications to help those living with the disease cope. PWS&D works with partners to prevent the transmission between mother and child, provide counseling and testing, and support and care for orphans and vulnerable children. Take the lead, inspire others to learn more, and raise funds for PWS&D’s AIDS programs. To learn more about our church’s work in the fight against HIV and AIDS, visit WeRespond.ca.

THE CHRISTIAN YEAR – CHRIST THE KING SUNDAY

November 23  is Christ the King Sunday, the final Sunday of the Season after Pentecost, and the final Sunday of the Christian Year.  A new Christian Year begins next week, with the First Sunday in Advent.

Christ the King Sunday affirms and celebrates Jesus’ kingship over the world and over the church, as well as over the lives of individual Christians.  It looks back to Jesus’ ascension, recognizing that he currently reigns in heaven, along with the Father and the Holy Spirit.  Also, it looks ahead to his coming in glory, anticipating the time when he will assert his royal authority over all creation.  Christ the King Sunday reminds us that Jesus is a person of the present and the future, not just of the past.

The symbolic color for Christ the King Sunday is white, symbolizing joy and celebration.

Stewards By Design: Celebrate God always!
Presbyterians Sharing helps equip congregations through events like Stewards By Design, a conference designed to help congregations discover how stewardship connects to all aspects of the mission and ministry of the church. Alice attended the event with a team from St. Andrew’s church in Stirling, Ontario. She shares, “Our church building is 158 years old. With the help of Kennon Callahan, we stopped “survival thinking” and started “forward thinking.” Amazing! Celebrate God always!”

Soup Kitchen Sunday

November 16th will be our second annual “Soup Kitchen Sunday”, when we affirm and celebrate the ministry of the Soup Kitchen as an important part of our church’s mission to the community — and say thank you to our volunteers and supporters.  This year, we are inviting all volunteers and supporters to join us for this service — and so, we’re hoping to have a significantly larger attendance than usual.  Since there will be no Church School or Youth Group that day, the service will be intergenerational.  A light lunch will be served after the service — soup, biscuits, and dainties
