Niagara Christian Gleaners
  1. We need your help to replenish our stash of baked goods! Our coffee breaks each morning are pretty valuable and it's just one more thing that makes serving at the Gleaners a wonderful experience. Our volunteers work up quite an appetite and the donations of home baking make such a difference. Having said that, our fridge and freezers are bare at the moment and so this note is a call-out for more home baking. If you are able to share some of your home baking with us, I'm certain that it will be well received. Please drop off at the Gleaners any weekday morning. Thanks and blessings to you.
  2. If you're able to help please use the signup link to let me know you're coming. Two simple steps and you're signed up!  Click this link https://niagaragleaners.org/volunteer
Newsletters - Attached are some newsletters. Printed copies will be on the bulletin boards in the fellowship hallway.
  1. Micah 6 Community;
  2. e3Canada (Greg Whitfield); and
