SEEKING SHORT TERM ACCOMMODATION FOR OUR REFUGEE FAMILY

Our family’s sponsorship application is moving along and while their expected arrival date is still unknown, there is the distinct possibility it could be very soon.

If there is a gap between securing permanent housing and the timing of their arrival, we would be in need of some temporary housing for our family of four: mom, dad and children ages 8 and 10. The duration would be quite short, a few days or a few weeks. No meals involved, but access to a kitchen is required.

Cognizant of financial factors, reimbursement would be negotiated and paid for by the Refugee Committee.

If you or someone you know would be interested in this opportunity to reach out, providing a safe and welcoming “home” for the Al Khatib’s, please contact John Horton (416-449-1142), Barb McDermott (416-490-9022) or Glory Wigle at the church office (416-447-5519), for more details.

Thank you in advance for your prayerful consideration of our request.

Steering Committee: Refugee Family Project

PARKWOODS NAME TAGS

There have been a number of new people attending our Sunday services during the year and we would like to request that you wear your name tags to help them meet our members. If you do not have a Name Tag, the church office will make one for you. You can leave your name on the sheet that is available at the coffee tables after the Sunday worship service.

MILK BAG MATS

We are still collecting washed and dried milk bags. The bags are cut into strips and crocheted or woven into mats. The mats are then shipped to weather ravaged countries for the less fortunate to sleep on. Please don’t put these bags in the garbage, bring them to the church for recycling! There is a box outside the church office marked ‘Milk Bags’ for your contributions.

PRAYER REQUESTS

Whenever you are in the Parkwoods lobby, take a minute to write a prayer request for the coming Sunday in our Prayer Request Book. Recent prayers have included names of those needing specific mention as well as those needs identified for general and inclusive prayers. It is also fitting to include prayers of thanksgiving and for memorial flowers. Prayers for the world/country/city are always appropriate.
