GREENBANK by Mary Jean Till – Oct 17, 2019
Thanksgiving celebrations are a time of family gatherings, special church services, outdoor activities, maybe the last trip to the cottage, a colour tour of autumn’s beautiful coloured leaves that splash the hills and country side. We have so much to be thankful for, now and each day, all year round. May we remember to share with those less fortunate through local Food Banks, charitable donations, or just reach out to a neighbour and others in some small way. A correction from last week is the Official Board Meeting for Greenbank and Seagrave churches is Tuesday, October 22nd, 7:30 p.m., at Greenbank Church. The Vroomanton United Church is celebrating it’s anniversary October 20th, 10 a.m. There will be no service at Greenbank so our congregation and all may worship at Vroomanton.
