Missions: Today is mission Sunday and our mission offering will be in support of The Open Door Center. Open Door is a place of help, hope and healing for women in crisis. The goal of Open Door is to change our city and province, so we no longer have the highest rates of trafficked youth in Canada. Open Door shares a message of hope and truth. Through your support and generosity, a team of volunteers have opportunity to speak to the youth in local schools on a weekly basis. Thank you for your prayerful consideration.
Reminder: No mid-week programming for In the Gap, Kidsplosion and Focus Youth, all programs will resume on Wednesday March 27 at their respective times.
