On the Sunday before Easter, we celebrate Jesus' ride into Jerusalem with palm fronds.
Our service begins a little earlier than usual at 10:00 am instead of 10:30 am and is a reflective time as
we hear the story of the crucifixion.
This celebration usually starts with a hearty breakfast served immediately before worship service. The
menu varies, but it's always homemade and delicious!
Also called Cemetery Sunday, on the first Sunday in June we remember our friends and family no longer
with us and celebrate the fellowship we have today. The service is enhanced with a guest speaker and
SUNDAY SCHOOL BBQ
On a Sunday in late May, we celebrate the graduation of our Sunday School classes by holding a BBQ in
the Church yard immediately following worship service.
HERITAGE SUNDAY IN THE CHAPEL
Second Sunday in July. Worship service and period dress followed by a light lunch.
COMMUNITY CORN ROAST AND OPEN HOUSE
Upon returning to regular Sunday morning worship services on the second Sunday in September, we enjoy a corn roast in the churchyard immediately following the service and welcome our neighbours.
The Church will be decorated with fruits and vegetables, and familiar hymns of thankfulness are the order
of the day. Again, we share our bounty by bringing non-perishable food items for the local Food Bank.
On the second-last Sunday in October, we celebrate our history and heritage. Friends from the past
gather and mingle with new friends we hope will be part of our future! A guest speaker and music makes
this very memorable!
We observe Remembrance Day in honour of those who have given their lives for our freedom.
On the first Sunday of Advent, along with the adorned Christmas Tree, we also have the Jesse/Jessie
Tree in the sanctuary. Throughout the Advent season, we collect mittens, hats, scarves, and small cuddly
toys on the tree, which are then distributed to the Sand Gate Shelter for Abused Women, a charitable
CHRISTMAS EVE CANDLELIGHT SERVICE
Our Minister and the Choir provide a very special service on Christmas Eve. The glow of the candles, the telling of the Christmas story, and the singing of familiar carols make this a very spiritual and truly special experience!
On the Sunday before Christmas we celebrate the birth of Jesus with the lighting of the Christ Candle,
your favourite carols, and familiar scriptures. This is truly the highlight of the Christian year.
