Dear Friends in Christ,
Advent greetings from your Mission & Service giving team. You are bringing God’s loving presence into the world through your Advent and Christmas preparations and all your ministry with your neighbourhood. As you light the candles, prepare for pageants, practice the songs and cantatas, and find ways to tell the ancient story with fresh voice, you are bringing God’s loving presence into the world. Know that when you lift up Mission & Service and give, you are touching neighbours across Canada and all around the world with God’s loving and hope-fulfilling presence.
Thank you for generous giving this year in support of Mission & Service.
