Pancakes and a Play
Last winter, the caring Sunday School class at St. John’s Presbyterian Church in Toronto, ON, hosted a pancake lunch in support of Presbyterian World Service & Development. After reading a short play to illustrate PWS&D’s mission and vision, the children invited guests to feast on pancakes and syrup, yogurt and fruit as they passed around a donation basket. “St. John’s Sunday School pancake lunch raised over $900 for PWS&D,” shares Laurie McGugan, the event organizer. “We were happy that we got so many people out!” Whether saving pennies, launching a campaign or holding a fundraising lunch, generous support from Presbyterians across Canada sustains programs that are building a more sustainable, compassionate and just world. Faithful to our calling, we respond together
Please continue to send any announcements to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Wednesday evenings to be printed in the bulletin.
We Pray For
Heavenly Father, nourish us with your word of Life and make us one with you in Love and Prayer. May we know your peace and love, removing distractions that take our gaze away from your glory. May we quiet the noise that pulls us from adoration from you and may we see your goodness and glory. We pray for those in need, especially for Cathy Kay, Dorothy Clow, Heather Ford, Louise Weeks, David MacIntyre, Eddy Dykerman,Wendell Nicholson, Gwen Henry, Aneila River- Watts, and Elwin Corbett. May the words of our mouths and the actions of our hands all bring Glory, Honour and Praise unto Christ. Amen

Wednesday – Glasgow Road – yogurt tubes and pretzels
Thursday – Brookfield – fruit and cheese
Friday – wrap up day with ice cream provided by Central Queens. They are planning on about 40 children and do not plan to have a closing on Sunday as we did last year because they are without a full time Minister at the moment.

Only 3 people showed up to the planning meeting so please consider even a day or two to help out.
