Christmas Hampers

Our goal is to provide Christmas hampers to 55 families whose names are provided by the Winnipeg Cheer Board. In addition to a hamper of groceries, every child in the receiving household is given a wrapped gift. There are many ways to participate in this year’ hamper program and you can learn about them all by clicking here: White Gift and Hamper Program


Lights for Lives 

Our annual Christmas memorial Program begins on Sunday, December 3, the first Sunday of Advent. Throughout the season, people may dedicate lights in the sanctuary to the memory of their departed loved ones. Remembrance slips can be completed at church on Sundays or in the office during the week. The program culminates with a contemplative evening worship service on Sunday, January 7, 2024 at 7:00 PM.
