You create all moments of our lives,

COLLECTION COUNTERS: We are in need of people to count the collection after church each Sunday. Dick and Jackie have fulfilled this essential role for many years, we are deeply grateful for them assuming this responsibility. It is a fairly straightforward task that requires training. Like readers, greeters and lay administrators a weekly roster will be created. Counting will be done in pairs, no one will be alone. Depending on how many people agree to count we hope you will help with this once a month. Please speak to Jenn Small, Tara Dentry or Heather Maclachlan if you are prepared to help
