Mark your calendars for Northlea’s wonderful Community Pancake Supper.
A donation jar will welcome your contribution. Proceeds from the Shrove Tuesday Supper will go to “Families for Children” – a home for children in India. Cool Church Kids have been sponsoring two children there – Madesh and Susan – since 2007. (Learn more about Families for Children by visiting their website – www.familiesforchildren.ca
As is our tradition, the pancake supper will be followed by an “Ash Wednesday Eve” service, starting at 7:15.
Between Cross & Crescent – A Learning Circle on Islam
Monday Evenings, March 6 to April 3
For 15 centuries, Islam has been a force in the world. Today over one billion people adhere to the Islamic faith, and an increasing number of our neighbours here in Canada identify themselves as Muslims. But the gap in understanding between Christianity (and western society) and Islam seems to have increased. The need to build bridges of understanding and overcome stereotypes is very present following incidents such as the killings in a mosque in Quebec City.
Through the five weeks of Lent, Rev. Douglas will bring together a Learning Circle on Islam on Monday evenings. You can attend as many as evenings you can manage, but don’t have to commit to all five. We will begin with some soup and bread starting between 6:30 – 7:00 p.m. followed by discussion that will end by 8:30 p.m. at the latest. These will start on Monday, March 6th.
Kim and Lee-Ann invite families to explore church in a new way – by getting “Messy”. There will be games, crafts, songs and time to enjoy a meal together. On March 5 activities will be centered around the idea of ‘Clutter-Free Families’. All are welcome – please invite neighbours and friends as well!
