For Your Information
Things that nice to know at our church . . .

PAR (Pre-Authorized Remittance)

Early in 2006, the Pre-Authorized Remittance Campaign was introduced to our congregation by the Stewardship Committee, with many families and members opting for the program at the time. If you would like to have your offerings automatically deducted from your bank account or Visa/Mastercard monthly, you may obtain a "sign-up form" from the church office or contact Howard Barnes for more information. If you wish to make a change to your original commitment, you may also do so by filling out another PAR sign-up form and having the existing form cancelled.

Wall of Celebration

One result of the Centennial Committee in 2006 was the institution of our Wall of Celebration. Our Wall of Celebration in the foyer of the church enables us to celebrate significant events in the lives of our loved ones or give us the opportunity to remember deceased loved ones. But there are many other important events that could also be recognized that would truly add to the history of our church and would be remembered forever. For example: Graduation is a special time in the lives of our children and grandchildren. With so many young people leaving our community to pursue careers, remembering this special event on our Wall of Celebration is a wonderful lasting tribute to these young people who have grown up in the church. We have also witnessed many of our young people, who now live away, returning to their family church to have their children baptized. Celebrating this event on our Wall of Celebration would be a wonderful tribute to these new members of our church family and we would have a lasting record of the family names who belong to this church. To order a plaque, fill out a form, found in the foyer of the church and return it to the church office, or just drop by the office. Cost of a plaque is $50.00. Contact the church office for more information at 489-6151.

Scent Sense

The United Church of Canada and the Newfoundland & Labrador Conference actively promote a scent-free environment in response to the growing number of people who suffer from allergies. There are people in our congregation who suffer from scent-related allergies. We ask for your understanding in this matter and thank you.
