CTV Reports on Community Cupboard

Posted on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 02:12 PM

CTV's Provincewide paid a visit to the Community Cupboard recently.  In case you missed the February 17th television broadcast, you can watch the 7-minute video on CTV's website by clicking their image below.  Join Daiene Vernile as she gets a guided tour of the Cupboard.

Thanks are due to the well-spoken Cupboard visitors who kindly gave candid interviews, offering viewers a window into their lives.

Thanks also to Ms. Vernile and Provincewide for their interest and for a fine piece of video journalism.  It is our prayer that the segment will raise awareness of the level of need in our community and inspire others to get involved in the Community Cupboard or other programs like it.

Wednesday services are "sandwiched" between our weekly Manna dinner at 5:30 p.m. and Catechesis (Christian instruction) for youth 7:15-8:00 p.m. 
You are welcome to join us any Wednesday, for any part of the evening.  (Manna's Bible study groups for all ages will resume March 27th.)
Feel free to contact the Office with questions.

Note: Ash Wednesday (February 13) includes the Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion.  All other Wednesdays will be 40-minute devotional services.

Recycling Program Expands

Posted on Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 03:37 PM

Cash4Cans Recycling Fundaiser for Community Cupboard
Here's a simple way to support the Community Cupboard and care for the environment.

It's not just pop cans anymore!

Reg's recycling program, Cash4Cans, now accepts all kinds of metal-containing items.  Whether you've got broken tools lying around the garage, strings of Christmas lights that don't work anymore, old metal pipes and fixtures after a bathroom reno . . . or just about anything that contains metal (including pop cans), volunteers are ready to turn it into funds for the Community Cupboard.  You may be surprised how valuable your "junk" is.

Cash4Cans has also partnered with ThinkRecycle to safely recycle your e-waste (e.g., cell phones, computers, printers).

All funds raised go to provide food and winter clothing for the Community Cupboard.

Visit Reg's website at www.cash4cans.net for details and contact information.  The site includes a running tally of funds raised, and pounds of recyclables diverted from the landfill.

New Wednesday Evening Study

Posted on Sunday, January 20, 2013 at 04:09 PM

New for the Winter 2013 term of Manna is a Bible study centred around a book entitled The Spirituality of the Cross.  Insightful and readable, this book gets at the very heart of what Christianity is and isn't.  Author Gene Veith's own decades-long search for meaning and peace makes him sympathetic to anyone who finds today's religious "options" hopelessly confusing and unsatisfying.  Veith writes:book-cover

The study takes place in the Luther Room (downstairs) on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. after the Manna meal.  No need to have a copy of the book: instructor Rev. Dr. Roger Winger will lead us through it.  This class will be of interest to adults and teens.  All welcome, anytime!
