Women's Advent Service

For many women, the gifts of Advent, hope, peace, joy and love, are so often lost between the shopping, the baking, the decorating and the general preparation for Christmas. Over 15 years ago, the members of TGIF, Together Growing in Faith a weekly women’s study group, began to host a service just for women to meet this need. Each year a new theme is chosen and a worship service is led by the many female volunteers of this congregation. For instance, one year the theme was entitled “Following a brighter Light than the light of our own candle… “, and the service was held on the first Monday evening after the First Sunday of Advent. 90 women were present and a collection of $370 was given to “Alpha House “, a shelter for abused women and their children. The glow of candle light and the blessing of the harp, played by Linda Kane, and the piano, played by Doreen Satterthwaite, provided us with time for reflection on the message of Christmas. With hymn, scripture, prayer and the fun of an Advent Choir, we were delightfully led to a time of togetherness over coffee and baking in the Narthex. The warmth of this community then wrapped us round, sending us home fortified in spirit; carrying God’s gifts of grace. Refer to our calendar for this year’s Advent Service date and details or contact our office.

Lights For Lives

This is a memorial service held in January of each year to remember family and friends who have passed away. Throughout the season of Advent, members are invited to make a contribution to purchase a “light” to light up our sanctuary for Christmas. The contributions are directed to grief support agencies such as Compassionate Friends, Grace Hospital Bereavement Support Program, Hospice & Palliative Care Manitoba and the St. Boniface Hospital Grief Support Program for Children and Teens.  More.…  For current date check our calendar.
