There will be an information meeting for any interested “newcomers” in finding out more about our SEMC El Salvador team on Wednesday, May 17th @ 7pm. Please indicate your interest to attend to Deve Persad. There is no commitment to join the team at this time. An introductory meeting for all past team members interested in joining this year’s team will be held on Sunday, May 28th after the morning worship service.

It’s time to get those seeds in the ground! The Community Garden will officially open on Saturday, May 20th @ 10am.  Planting will begin at that time and continue on May 27th and June 3rd @ 10am.  Gardening will take place on Tuesdays and Saturdays @ 10am beginning June 6th. All are welcome!

Contact Les & Julia Henderson for more information
The SEMC garden is located behind the fire station on East St in Germain Park


Come on out to Canatara Park on May 28th and show your love and support to Aaron and his family as they walk to raise funds and awareness for Huntington disease. If you would like to donate to their cause, you can do so by clicking here. There is a spot there to indicate your support for “Aaron Melville”.

We’re looking for 4 to 6 people to help prepare and serve lunch the morning of the picnic. If you’re interested, please contact the church office. The main course (BBQ hamburgers & hot dogs) and salads will be provided by Sarnia Blessings. We’re asking everyone to please bring either a dessert or snack food to share.


If you would like to contribute items for the totes, you can find a list online by clicking here. Lists will also be available in the church foyer on Sunday mornings. Please bring your purchased items to the church by the end of May.
