Thank you to all who donated for the Christmas Eve Offering. We used the $1705 raised to purchase items from the Nazarene Compassionate Ministry Canada Gift Catalog. With the generous funds we were able to purchase the following items:
When we replaced our toilets throughout the church this past year, we thought it would be a great way to also support healthy hygiene around the world! We have 13 toilets in the church and so we have twinned all 13 of them with a latrine in a developing country around the world. Check the plaque above the toilet here at Southside to see where we are twinned!
Each year at our Christmas Eve service we receive an offering to support a Nazarene ministry around the world. For the past few years, we have used the monies raised for this offering to purchase items from the Nazarene Compassionate Ministry Gift Catalog. These items range from goats and chickens to bicycles for pastors, education courses and books, sewing machines for women to start a business and much more. We invite you to donate this year. If you would like more information check out the NCM website here.
For the month of November, we will be focusing across our district on the Nazarene Compassionate Ministries in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. We have a number of local ministries doing an incredible work across our district. Please visit the Communion Table to grab a prayer request leaf, an offering envelope or give online.
Join us on Sunday 7th November at 6PM as we learn more about the amazing work of MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship). We will be receiving an offering for MAF on the night, with 100% of money raised going to this great mission.
To donate to this important offering, you can drop off a check at the church (please mark it as WMB) or come into the church to use the debit machine, or click here to donate online.
