Much lovely, lively music for the service was by three guest instrumentalists of “Add Water and Stir”: Doug Ferris, Sylvia Kim, Travis Van Belle; and church pianist Stuart, vocalist Tiina Beaudoin, and by the choir.
Minister Stephanie talked to the children about making a difference by doing little things, even a smile to make one happy. Her message to the adults “Enough is Enough” made reference to the Florida High School shooting, how the students are speaking out, doing a National School Walkout on March 14th for 17 minutes for the 17 lives taken, and on March 21st a march on Washington in an attempt to get government gun law changes, as they remember their classmates. Jesus too, said “Enough is Enough” when he cleared the temple of animals, birds, money changers, as the place of worship had become a market place.
Church Secretary is Val Hunter 905-985-3586 or email@example.com.
Stephanie is at Greenbank Church office Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. firstname.lastname@example.org.
