Prayer for all impacted by wildfires in British Columbia

God of Creation,
We live in a world where both beauty and danger surround us.

Receive our prayers for those impacted by, and living in fear of, the wildfires across the interior of British Columbia:
for all who cannot find adequate food, safety, or shelter…
for all who have lost their homes, churches, community centres, and workplaces…
for all your glorious natural Creation that has been destroyed and is in harm’s way…
for all things,

The New Chairs are Here!

Update – Chair Replacement Project.

The new chairs are here!   And the old chairs are gone.   Thanks to Peter, Norm and Grant for their help in unpacking, building the trolleys and dump runs with the packing waste. It’s a tight fit in the storage room but with a little juggling it works for now.  When stacked correctly each chair trolley holds 32 chairs and the table trolleys hold 10 tables. If we all take care when handling and stacking our chairs and tables they should serve us well for many years to come.

Fitness at Maple Grove

Did you know that Maple Grove United Church has fitness classes running three days a week? Have you ever walked by the Friendship Room on a weekday morning and wondered what is going on? Maple Grove has fitness classes running for ages 50+ and are ideal for beginners and/or intermediate levels. These classes are exclusively for ladies (we think the men are too scared to join us). Some of these ladies have been exercising with us for years!

We have just finished wrapping up our 2016-2017 season and it was another huge success.
