Thank you: On behalf of our youth department we wish to express our sincere appreciation to EVERYONE who helped make our first Silent & Dessert Auction such a great success. Special thanks to Mary-Ann Walker, Liz Tierney, Terry Reid, Elaine Haines and Pastor Shaun. Our many thanks to each one who provided the desserts. Keep those recipe books handy for our next dessert auction event! We are pleased to let you know that nearly $4500 was raised in support of FOCUS18. Please keep this year’s conference, our youth and youth leaders supported in prayer. May the lives of those attending be blessed and enriched in the presence of the Lord.

 

Missions: Today is Mission Sunday here at FGC and our mission focus for the month of October is “For Child’s Hope Canada” under the leadership of Samuel Kiragu. This is a Canadian registered charity based in Halifax, with the work being carried out in Kenya. For Child’s Hope was founded to assist the many academically gifted children from needy families in Kenya who are unable to proceed to high school due to lack of funding. Thank you for your support.
