Pembina Prolife – AGM (Feb 7 2020)

Conceived in Rape
 
Pembina Prolife is pleased to announce that international prolife speaker, Rebecca Kiessling, will be coming to Barrhead to speak at the  AGM on February 7, 2020. Rebecca, who is an attorney, wife, and mother of five, is passionate about the prolife cause, especially as it relates to the rape arguement, since she herself was conceived through rape.
This year the AGM will be held in the Barrhead Elementary School Gym. This event includes a delicious catered meal, with a silent auction. Tickets are available at the Neerlandia Coop Home & Farm Centre,  the Barrhead Flower Shoppe, and Greig Printing & Stationery in Westlock. Please purchase tickets before January 31st.   For more information call Ryan (780-305-1926).

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
