Community Care's 34th Annual Food Drive - EPIC and the kids ministry are invited to join TRUTH in picking up food from Campden for Community Care's Food Drive this Saturday, September 16th. To help, meet at the building at 9am. We will split up and pick up food from the houses in the Campden area. We will be done before noon. 

Great Lakes Christian High School - Great Lakes is looking for more help in the kitchen. Three hours a day Monday - Friday 10am - 1pm. Hours can be flexible. Please contact careers@glchs.ca  

Camp Omagh 
  1. There's nothing like a little pie to make it a celebration. Our summer 2023 programming is over but come get one more taste of Camp Omagh! The graphic has all the details but here is a list of the goodies on auction. All pies and deserts are HOMEMADE! There are usually some bidding wars, so come ready to have some fun. Tax receipts will be issued for all winning bids less the market value of the pie ($10). We accept cash, cheque, VISA/MC credit/debit (place a reserve bid of $500+ for any dessert/pie to secure it before the bidding starts) Contact secretary@campomagh.org now.
  2. We'll also be auctioning/selling off some of our vintage windows and raw cut lumber from a felled campus butternut tree. A great way to have a little Omagh in your home year round! Tax receipts will also be issued less the fair market value: windows $20 and wood $15 per board food (board foot = L x W x thickness)
  3. Closing up camp is a huge job. Do you have some time and energy to share with us? Please contact secretary@campomagh.org and she will get you in touch with our grounds crew.

Village of Hope - September is Hunger Action Month every year. It is a nationwide campaign dedicated to raising awareness about hunger and taking action to address food insecurity. We're grateful for the recognition of the work we do in Lincoln to alleviate food insecurity at Village of Hope Niagara. Your donations of food and/or funds are appreciated and make possible the work that we do. In our community, it's estimated 1 in 6 among our neighbours (1 in 5 children) are going without each month, - skipping meals, and missing nutrition. When children, seniors, whole families in our community are affected, we're all impacted. Donors of food or funds are appreciated always, but on Saturdays Sept 16 and 23, donors will receive a special gift of thanks from us to you.

Service Sunday October 1 

"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen. " (1 Pet 4: 10-11)

Worship takes many forms (not just as a gathering on Sunday) and as a church family, we would like to spend Sunday October 1st as a Sunday of Service where we serve our neighbours and our community as an act of worship. Here is what that might look like.

Over the next few weeks we are looking for examples of ways that you and your family could serve as a way of service from 9 am until 12pm on Sunday October 1st. 

For example:
  • Maybe you and a couple other families could clean up a park near where you live.
  • Maybe you and a few other folks at Tintern could visit someone in a Long-Term-Care Facility. Maybe sing some songs and share in communion with someone who is shut in.
  • Maybe you could spend the morning visiting with someone you know who is in hospital or is sick at home.
  • Maybe there is someone in your neighbourhood that could use some help. You could get a couple of friends at church to help them.
  • If you're unable to work physically or travel to visit someone, maybe you could take our list of service options and pray for the people who are participating in our Sunday of Service.
After you have served you and your families are invited back to the building at 1pm to share in a lunch together provided at the church (by some other people who are also serving) where we will get a chance to share our experiences together and then partake in communion together.

Check the white board in the auditorium after September 3rd for a list of possible service projects. Feel free to add your own. Sign up for one and indicate if you will be joining us for lunch on October 1st. If you have any questions feel free to contact Noel.

We look forward to serving together and worshiping God.
