FYI, Pastor Vern and Jackie are on vacation (in Belize!) until March 15. We hope they have a safe and wonderful time away.
As previously mentioned, a team of nine drove down and worked at Gleaners in Lumby last Friday. Thanks to Hugh, Dorothy, Carolyn, Verlie, Dee, Sherry, Linda, Marv and Nancy. The group had a great time together and did a lot of work with other workers at Gleaners that day. Hugh sent some photos and messaged that 210,000 meals were packaged up and ready to go. As well, a container headed to Africa was loaded with 2.3 million meals. That's so awesome! What a worthwhile day. (The Gleaners are a group of volunteers who have responded to the opportunity to turn surplus food crops into nutritious meals for a hungry world. Additionally, they receive donated medical equipment from local facilities and distribute it to institutions in many countries.) Check out the photos in the photo gallery.
Linda will continue with the Apostles' Creed this Sunday, you're most welcome to join us. Linda is a great speaker and teacher and she makes everything a lot more understandable. The Apostles' Creed is foundational to what we believe and value.
