Love on Lebanon

Thank you for the generous love offering, totalling $16,675, to help support the Beit El Safa Girls’ Home in Lebanon. We pray that the girls’ lives and this ministry will be richly blessed as a result.

Children’s Summer Program

Parking Lot Construction Update

Construction on the parking lot continued to make good progress this week. The first layer of our sub-grade is completed and so we have the full area to park on. Our old light poles have been removed and work is being done to prepare the new lighting, but our lot will rely on sunlight for the next several weeks. If you are driving in or out of the church in the evening or early morning, please be careful. Next week, they will begin installing the curbs. It may mean temporary closures in one or the other of our entrances. Always check before you pull in. We’re still hoping to have the parking lot complete by the end of July. Thank you for your patience.

Help Needed

A 74-year-old man who walks with a cane and doesn’t drive wants to attend our church and has asked whether there is anyone who can drive him. He lives at 125 Pugsley Avenue. We do have an offer for pick up. If you think you might be able to drop him off after the 11 am service, please contact the office at lynnk@gracebc.ca.
