Dawn House kindly donated eleven boxes of items useful for folks who use the Benevolent Program. It is wonderful to be working alongside other community members!
Two hundred packages of socks, toques, mitts and treats have been assembled to be distributed to men and women who come for assistance to the Benevolent Program. Donations still welcomed.
Did you Know? This Sunday’s advent reader is Jane MacEwen. She is a member of the Inreach Circle which is concerned with supporting ideas that help the Chalmers congregation to be connected. For example, they recently created the Gentle Walking Group that has spent the last few months exploring beautiful corners of Kingston. Another idea is the upcoming potluck Christmas dinner on December 23rd. Please join the next circle to help connect to your congregation.
