EMERGENCY RELIEF FOR CYCLONE VICTIMS – MOZAMBIQUE

In response to the very damaging cyclone that struck East South Africa in recent days, the United Church of Canada has launched an emergency appeal for Church-wide national support to bring relief to this area, especially to Mozambique.

The situation is desperate with thousands drowned and countless homes destroyed from nightmarish winds and floods, causing heart-rending anguish to a very vulnerable population.

We are reminded that the United Church of Canada acts in close partnership with ACT, an international organization of Church-led support.  ACT is active, right on the ground in the afflicted countries.

How can we help?  Specially-designated envelopes marked Cyclone Relief- Mozambique are on the coffee tables, at the back of the sanctuary, until APRIL 14THCheques should be made out to Parkwoods United Church.  This enables tax relief forms to be made to donors by our Treasurer, who immediately forwards your contribution to the United Church of Canada.

Thank you for giving this appeal your prayerful consideration.

For further information please contact Marilyn Manners or John Horton
Mission and Service & Outreach Committee

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.
