Youth Group Pocket Prayers

We are starting the Pocket Prayers project this month. The youth
will gather items urgently needed by the Mustard Seed in Edmonton.
All these items will be put in backpacks and added to that will be a
prayer, handwritten by the youth. Items needed are: toiletries – small
and regular sized items for men and women; underwear for men and
women (new); gently used winter jackets; winter shoes and boots;
gently used men’s sweaters; socks (new); backpacks. We will make
our delivery to the Mustard Seed on November 9, when the youth is
going out there to cook and serve a meal for the homeless.
If you’d like to help our youth and the Mustard Seed, you can bring
your donation to the church- please leave it behind the bulletin board
by the overflow entrance.
All items have to be either new or, if used, clean and in good
condition. For details call Ellen Mourits 780 674 0152

The Movie ‘Unplanned’ is about one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors, Abby Johnson whose passion surrounding a woman’s right to choose led her to become a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, fighting to enact legislation for the cause she so deeply believed in; until the day she saw something that turned her into an anti-abortion activist. Through the eyes of one woman who once believed she was doing good; we see the horror of abortion for what it truly is.
