The Talent Auction fundraiser for Greenbank United Church was well attended and quite successful. Treasurer Wilma Smith, at church on Sunday morning, extended a huge vote of thanks to all who donated, to all the bidders and buyers, to auctioneer Carl Phoenix, and to Kim Thomson who coordinated the auction.
Thanks also go to other communities' support too.
Sunday's service included the lovely choral anthem, “Sing a New Song” by Young. In the Mission Minute with Pauline Reed, she spoke of Canadian churches which receive Mission and Service support financially, e.g. Northern Arms Pastoral Charge, Newfoundland, a four point charge with one worship service each week at 3 p.m. at one of the four churches. Any left over funds at year end are returned to M&S to pay it forward, and help other churches in need.
Rev. Parker's message “Allegiance to Jesus” reminds people to live their lives following Christ's example of faith and love.
