Starting July till October, you can be part of our lawn and garden maintenance team. Please come and join us the last Saturday of each month, from 9 a.m. to noon. Mark your calendar and show some support! Please contact Tali Wong or email to email@example.com so we can schedule and plan ahead. Thank you.
We are also collecting egg case liner for gardening purposes, please pass them to Connie Muk or Tali Wong. Thank you.

Church Donation Envelopes
Church donation envelopes are available on the front desk. For those who have donation numbers, you have four different kinds of envelopes: Operation, Thanksgiving, Building and Special. Tax receipts will be issued for donations over $10 within a year. If you are interested to have a donation number, please contact Josephine Cheung.
Starting in January 2019, our good stewardship program will be changed. To reduce the administration time and cost maintaining the program, we will join the Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR) program from the National office of the United Church of Canada. Over 100 parishes in our diocese are currently using them. For the existing donors on the good stewardship program, we will prepare the new registration form and our wardens will reach out to you in person for the transition process. This is also the best time for anyone to join the program. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Good Stewardship coordinator Amy Chiu (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the churchwardens.
