Local Opportunity to Serve:
MDS will be building a home in Marquette Manitoba starting this fall. They will be needing volunteers to help with the build starting at end of Sept. and into Oct., possibly November. This will be for day service only Monday to Friday and some Saturdays with lunch and snacks provided. Volunteers 15 years (Gr. 10) and older can sign up for a day at a time or for a week, during the course of the build. Any youth under the age of 15 can volunteer when accompanied by a parent as they must work alongside their parent at the build site. The project coordinator will be providing us with ongoing information as to how many volunteers are needed each week and the tasks needing to be completed. There may also be opportunity for our church to provide some snacks for lunches and coffee breaks if anyone is interested in doing some baking. Anyone interested in volunteering, please contact Debbie Iverson or Jeanette Schmidt so that we can coordinate teams and transportation from our church for when volunteers are needed. There is something that binds us together when we serve together as a church family.
Come to Winkler Bible Camp on September 17th 4:30 pm. - 7:30 pm. for our annual fall supper. Meal includes turkey, stuffing, potatoes and more. Free-will offering will be taken. For more information, visit our website www.winklerbiblecamp.com.
On September 21 & 22 come on down to Winkler Bible Camp's Fall Festival! A fundraising event for families and friends to come and have a day filled with activities such as the giant swing, inflatables, carnival games, petting zoo, and more! There will be a free week of camp given away during the day, so don't miss out! Visit www.winklerbiblecamp.com for prices, times, and more details.
