We will join together with St. Andrew’s and St. Paul’s to celebrate St. Andrew’s anniversary on Sunday, Sept 24th at 11 am, followed by a pot luck lunch. There will be no service in Morewood that day.
The next communion service will be on October 1, 2017 at 11:15
We will be joining together with St. Pauls, Winchester, and St, Andrews Chesterville to create a church directory. A photographer will be taking pictures on Sept. 21, 22, 23. At this point, we are looking for the number of people/families who are interested in being involved, so please talk to Ruth or Colleen. We hope that everyone involved with the church will take part. Each participant/family/group will get a copy of the directory at no cost, plus one 8 X 10 copy of their picture. The photographer’s hope then is that many will purchase individual pictures, but there is no obligation to do so.

The Presbytery of Seaway-Glengarry has decided to sponsor a refugee family. To that end a Refugee sponsorship committee has been formed. They have asked each pastoral charge to name a representative. garnet Thompson form Morewood has agreed to e our representative. The cost to sponsor a family is approximately $30,000. Support for the programme will be by freewill donations through our local churches to the Presbytery. Until our application is completed we have no details on the family that we might receive or when they might arrive.
