At Shipwrecked Vacation Bible school held last week at Knox Presbyterian church, children discovered how Jesus can rescue us through life’s storms. Each morning the children had a great time playing games, participating in science experiments, creating crafts, singing cool Bible songs, enjoying snacks and hearing incredible Bible stories. The children were encouraged to bring an offering each day to go towards our mission project. This year we chose to support the Presbyterian World Service and Development’s food security project in Guatemala through the Farming for the Future Challenge. $25 provides seeds for one family to start their own garden and feed their family. Our offering at the end of the week totaled $1025.00. This is matched 3:1 in partnership with the Canadian Food Grains Bank. The week ended with a closing program and picnic lunch on the church lawn.
While you are here, we have a small ask.
More people are reading The Review than ever before — across our many platforms. So far, we have not put up a paywall to limit the stories you can read. We want to keep you in the news loop. But advertising revenues are increasingly going to the big two: you know who they are. If you value The Review’s independent, local community journalism, or you value the many ways we support dozens of community organizations in their endeavours, consider supporting our work. It takes time, effort and professional smarts to stay on top of community news and present well-researched, objective news articles on issues which matter to you.
If you read stories on this website, or you have come here from an Instant Article post on Facebook, think about subscribing. It would be a vote of confidence for the work that we do, and for the future well-being of your community.
