Great Christmas Gifts!

Warm, brightly coloured or dragon mittens make great Christmas presents.
We have a nice selection of hand knit mittens, by Carol.  The mittens are $15.00 per pair and all money goes towards Hope Clothing.  There are adult and children sizes.  Don't see something you like, you could ask and see if Carol could knit you something specific.

The mittens are hanging on Joni's office door, with envelopes there to pay.  
Please help yourselves!

Operation Christmas Child

Posted by on Friday, November 9th, 2018 in News

The Athalie Read Group 

is going to assist with preparing boxes for shipping by Samaritan’s Purse for Operation Christmas Child on Friday November 30th. Operation Christmas Child is a hands on way for Canadians to bless struggling children in the developing world by filling shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items and school supplies. This is a fun way for parents and grandparents to teach children to care for and about others.

Each member of the Athalie Read Group packs a shoebox and we invite the congregation to do the same. Instructions for packing boxes can be found at You can choose the gender and age of the child you want to receive your shoebox. A donation of $10 is needed to cover the cost of shipping. 
Please have your shoebox to the church by Sunday, November 25th.  The shoeboxes will be dedicated during our worship service by Rev. Scott McAndless.
Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
The Athalie Read Group.
