Giving Thanks!

We are grateful for the abudant harvest represented in our display of fruits, vegetables, and canned goods this Sunday, all of which will be going to the MCC Refugee Food Bank on Monday. And we are grateful for our guest speaker, Mulanda Jimmy Juma, who will be speaking to us about peacemaking, thanksgiving, and his experience as the MCC Coordinator for the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Pictures/Video for our New Website

We're currently working on a new website to go along with our new name, Peace Church on 52nd! That means you'll see some people around our buildings taking pictures and even some video of us. If you don't want images of yourself posted on our website, please let Lydia, Adam, or Jonathan Penner know.

Upcoming Community Events -- Neighbourhood Bread Giveaway and Community Dinner

This Sunday from 12-1:30, we're going to be offering free coffee and giving away bread on the front lawn of the Education Building -- this is a chance for us to show love to our neighbours!

Also, come join us on Thursday Sept 20th at 6pm for our first Community Dinner this fall... This is a wonderful chance to get to know your fellow church members better, and to build relationships with those in our neighbourhood! If you'd like to help out with setup, cooking, or cleanup, just contact Al Fleming or Lydia Cruttwell.
