Our Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, February 21, 2021 at 11:30am.
Anyone who has a designated ministry or responsibility, please ensure KAT has your AVM report(s) by Monday January 18. Details on how the meeting will be convened will come later.
Please arrange to either pick up your Offertory Envelopes or to have them delivered by the end of next week. We have Parish Council members willing to deliver them if you aren’t able to swing by, so please talk to KAT in the main office to arrange this. If you are on Electronic Plate and want to make additional contributions, use an envelope from last year and just change the date. Thank you!
A card from the Board of Tumaini Canada:
"Thank you so much for your generous cheque of $445.86 to Tumaini Fund Canada. This will buy Daftari (school books) for 30 students. They must have these books to be able to attend secondary school. An education changes their lives. Merry Christmas!"
The amount given to Tumaini is half the amount of the Birthday Box collection which is shared equally with PWRDF. Thank you to all of you who continue to donate even though we’re not in church having the children bring the box around at the end of the service!
CARE TEAM Meeting: Monday January 18th. Please note these CHANGES: the meeting will be via SKYPE (not ZOOM) and at 10:30am (half an hour later than originally scheduled).
The gospel reading for this coming Sunday is John 1: 43 - 51. Please plan to view the service on Sunday as Selinde will be delivering a special message.

A professor gave a balloon to every student, who had to inflate it, write their name on it and throw it in the hallway. The professors then mixed all the balloons. The students were given 5 minutes to find their own balloon. Despite a hectic search, no one found their balloon. At that point the professors told the students to take the first balloon that they found and hand it to the person whose name was written on it. Within 5 minutes everyone had their own balloon. The professors said to the students: “These balloons are like happiness. We will never find it if everyone is looking for their own. But if we care about other people's happiness....we'll find ours too.
Be there for others during this rough time; you will be surprised by the positive outcome.
