Making God's Love Known

This is our mission. It helps us to focus on the important stuff. Making God's Love Known is the answer to the question, "What are we supposed to be doing?"

Please take note of the following important information.
Please help us in working towards being a nut safe facility. When bringing food/snacks into our building, avoid all nut products. Thank you!

We have decided to open up the library on a trial basis, following health safety protocols.  Because books need to "decontaminate" for 72 hours, books will only be available for signing out on Wednesdays and Thursdays when church staff is around to open the library. 

Please call ahead to the church to insure somebody is available. (204) 436-2290

 

We ask that you please:

- use the available hand sanitizer before entering and after leaving the library

- limit your time in the library to respect those opening it for you and others that may be waiting to use it.

- limit library occupancy to 3 (unless from the same family) and practice social distancing.

- limit yourself to 3 books per person. The two week rental still applies.

 

There will be boxes labeled "Book Return" placed at the two sanctuary entrances as well as outside the library door.  Please return your books there and DO NOT remove books from these boxes.

Thank you

Library Committee

The Carman Refugee Support Committee was excited to welcome the Mohammad family to Carman in November 2019! They are adjusting well and are so thankful to be in Canada. Due to Covid-19, the ability to find full time employment has been delayed due to a postponed medical procedure. The committee has decided to raise further funds in order to support the family into early 2021.  We realize this is a difficult financial time for many – your financial support will have a huge positive impact on the Mohammad’s. A big thank you to all who made donations when the fundraising campaign first began!  All donations will receive a tax deductible donation receipt.  Cheques can be made out to ‘Elm Creek MB Church’ (with a note indicating ‘refugee support’) and given to Lori (Len) Wiebe or Lori Schroeder or mailed/dropped off at the church. Thank you!
Winkler Bible Camp Fall Fundraising Supper on September 22, 4:30pm-7:30pm.  It will be a traditional thanksgiving meal and all funds raised go towards our general budget.
This will be a drive-through event and will follow all COVID-19 regulations and precautions. You will be required to stay in your vehicle the entire time.
