    Spring has Sprung - Good Gracious - May 2023

    May 5, 2023

    One of the things we see on the news daily is the inundation of homes near water sources, the Ottawa River, creeks, low lying areas, you name it. Perhaps you are like me and ask yourself why the city or region would allow buildings to be built in these areas that are prone to flooding. And if the officials allow it, why would homeowners continue in these buildings and properties causing themselves the stress and pressures of being unable, in many cases, to actually remedy the situation and have a safe property to live on. Everyone makes their decisions in light of their understanding of the situation in which they live. They choose the best path they can figure out. Is it for me to judge those who are in waterfront residences? It is not my decision...

    April 13, 2023

    As you all can see there's a lot of exciting updates to share, the foremost of which is the fact that Sam and I got married February 18th, which I am so pleased to share with all. It was a lovely, intimate and intentional service shared with close friends and family and live-streamed to include as many loved ones as we could.

    MISSION MOMENT – Out of the Cold (OOTC)

    February 28, 2023

    You’ve heard of OOTC frequently over the Christmas season. The snowman has been in the narthex collecting warm accessories.  37 pairs of socks, 9 pairs of hand knitted mittens, 2 pairs of ski mitts, 1 scarf, 4 hats, 3 thermal long underwear tops and 4 thermal underwear bottoms were collected. The Christmas Eve loose offering and designated givings totaling $484 was forwarded to OOTC. These donations are deeply appreciated. It is not a mission for which the church designates a specific annual monetary support so this generous practical support is so welcomed.

    Ottawa Innercity Ministries - April 2023 Update

    March 30, 2023

    Where has the time gone!? Already we are entering the second quarter of 2023. -in my mind, I am still somewhere back to the early days of the year. But, no! Snow is becoming a memory, clocks have leaped forward and this month we will celebrate with great joy the resurrection of our Lord.

    However, while I may be having trouble keeping up, there is much to be thankful for over the past three months.
