This December, Crossroads will again be providing 48 Christmas food baskets as a part of the city-wide Salvation Army drive for which we will need to raise $3500. Consider contributing to this program that benefits the less fortunate. You can add your donation to your regular Sunday offering (indicate "Christmas baskets" on the envelope), drop it off at the church office, or consider contributing on-line using our CanadaHelps portal.
Bread of Life - can you help?
This is a group of helpers from Crossroads that serves dinner (organized by the Salvation Army) the last Monday of each month to those in need.
Can you volunteer? Contact the church office or sign up after church.

About the season: Ordinary Time/ Season of Creation
When: From the Sunday after Pentecost (June 9 in 2019) until the beginning of Advent (Dec 1 in 2019).
About the Date: "Ordinary" comes from "ordinal" which means "counting" as we count the Sundays to Advent
Meaning: As crops slowly grow in the fields, this time between the major holy seasons in the church provides a time in which we can grow our faith, and then turn our focus to the mission of the church in the world. The time from the beginning of September is also known as the Season of Creation, during which we can also focus on thankfulness for the gifts of creation and on our role as stewards of the earth.
