PARKWOODS PHOTO DIRECTORY

Thank you to everyone who made an appointment to have a photo taken.   Photo times are available on September 5, 21, 22 and 24 when IPC Photo Services will be at the church to take photographs.

One 30 to 45 minute appointment is all it takes to have the photo taken and select the one you want in your FREE Photo Directory and the FREE 8×10 copy for your personal use.  At the same time, there is an opportunity to purchase photos, but there is no obligation to do so.

For further information or to book an appointment, contact Carolyn Horton 416-449-1142.

OUR FAMILY HAS ARRIVED!

Safe and sound, they are now enjoying their very own apartment as they gently begin to be introduced to life in Canada.  Immediate attention is being given to attending to the schooling needs for the children and English language instruction for all members of the family.  Batoul and Ghassan, our sponsored children from Syria, have settled into their new school happily, and are making good progress with language and Canadian ways.  The children were registered in the school that they will be attending, close to their new apartment.  Mohammad is presently attending English classes.

You are warmly invited to visit the table in the foyer after church services to help us match your interests with areas in which we will need help.

Warmest thanks for your generous donations to our funding campaign!  Envelopes for donations will continue to be available during the month of June.

To receive tax relief, please place your cheque in pre-marked envelopes located on refreshment tables at the back of the Sanctuary.

For tax eligibility, please make your cheques out to Parkwoods United Church OR place cash in the pre-labelled envelope and write your name and address or envelope number on the envelope as indicated.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!

A sign up list for Ushers & Greeters is posted in the Main Reception Area.  Your participation is important to us.  If you have any questions, please contact the church office at 416-447-5519.

PARKWOODS NAME TAGS

There have been a number of new people attending our Sunday services over the summer.  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.
