Prayer Shawl Ministry
As we begin our journey together, we are compiling an e-mail list of those who are currently knitting or crocheting prayer shawls, and those who may be interested in getting involved. This will enable us to be in touch easily, to support the needs of this important ministry. Please send an e-mail to Carol Hennigar at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your name added to the list.
More info will soon be forthcoming please stay tuned!

Caring for those with Cognitive Impairment
Do you live with, visit, or are you a friend of someone with short term memory loss, dementia, or stroke related symptoms?
In the spring we hope to offer sessions to help us all to communicate better, to give and receive support, and to offer hope to our members and our communities. This is definitely a series to invite friends and neighbours to.
In order to provide these resources to renew ourselves and our neighbours, you may consider acting as a host for one of these events. All of these offerings are open to members, relatives, friends, and the wider communities of Clarkson and Port Credit.
Please contact the church office to express interest in any of these programs at email@example.com
