Join us this Sunday for in-person service at 9:45 am. Masks are optional. If you are showing symptoms of COVID, please remain at home.

Making Space in September - This week over dinner with your family or over coffee with a friend, can you start a conversation about what it could look like to be intentional about leaving space for our neighbours?

A few ideas to get you started
-Can we give up TV for the month?
-Can we have our morning coffee on the front porch?
-Can we give up 1 of our 21 meals each week to have a meal with a neighbour?
-Can we delete our social media apps for the month?
-Can we sign up for the community care food drive?

We would love to hear the creative ways you come up with to make space and activities you plan for time in our community.

Harvest of Hope - Thanksgiving Hamper Program 2022 - Sept 14 - October 10
We're thankful for our community and the support it affords us to assist our neighbours in need. Now through October 15, A Village Gives Thanks during our Harvest of Hope. We’re setting a place at the table for our neighbours in need this year, that they may find hope and give thanks over a Family Thanksgiving Dinner. Our Sponsor a Family, will provide a Thanksgiving Food Hamper with all of the trimmings (and post-dinner leftovers for some time) to families in need in Lincoln. (A donation of $100 to sponsor a family is suggested, though donations at every level make our programs possible.)It takes a Village... Please Donate at villageofhopeniagara.org. Persistent economic insecurity in our community has seen family registrations at Village of Hope Niagara remain uncomfortably high, with so many for the first time in their lives seeking assistance from our foodbank.
