Happy Friday Westheights!
This Sunday we will be including Communion in our service. If you wish to participate, please have bread and juice with you. Following the service, we have planned a time of prayer. Here is the zoom link for this time of prayer:
Residential Schools in Canada: Listening and Learning as an Active Response
Many of us have found ourselves deeply troubled by the news of the remains of 215 children being found on the grounds of a former residential school. For some of us, our reaction to this news has been that we do not know much about this chapter of Canadian history and its impact on Indigenous communities. This week the staff has compiled a list of resources that are intended to help us respond with a posture of listening and learning. You can find these resources on our blog.
The Community Centre Collection
This spring we have been collecting items to be distributed by the Forest Heights Community Centre. This month, we ask you to consider purchasing diapers (size 4-6 only). Donations can be left in the bin located on the ramp to the church office. The last day for collection is Wednesday, June 16th.
If you would have something that you would like us to pray for, email your prayer request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Prayer requests will be forwarded to Westheights folks who have expressed a desire to support us in prayer. If you would like to receive these prayer requests please email email@example.com and we will add you to the distribution list.
