Christmas Missions Projects 2018

We were given full details of how we could be a part of our Christmas Missions Offering to assist our missionary partners in their work, both here and around the world. We include the Richmond Hill Food Bank in this project to express love for those in need within our own community. This year we will also include a donation to Brad & Emily Morrice, Église du Plateau-Mont-Royal, a Montreal church plant. Our gift will help towards acquiring a new property that will be a launching pad for outreaches, and mercy ministries to provide free music lessons for underprivileged children. Our Missions Committee has also selected Alan and Esther, The Toronto Jewish Mission, to assist with their various outreach programs and feasts with Jewish people.

The Project will remain open till Sunday, December 30. Mark your gift ‘Christmas Projects 2018’, and please give generously. Gifts received by or clearly postmarked on or before December 30, 2018 will be receipted for the tax year 2018. Gifts postmarked after December 30, 2018 will be receipted for 2019.
