MEXICO MISSION 2016
The Mexico Mission Team is starting a bottle-drive campaign to raise funds for the church-build project in San Quintin, Mexico. Please bring your empty beverage containers to the church and place them in the wooden bin on the north side of the church, between the parking lot and the preschool. If you have a large amount of bottles or cans and do not have a way to get them to the church, please contact Mark P. (780) 498-6726. Thank you for your support.
Next Sunday December 20th we will have a short congregational meeting after the worship service to vote to amend our church budget to include the Syrian Refugee sponsorship project. The project is recommended by Council but its scope requires congregational approval.

THE GREAT AVITIA DIAPER CHALLENGE!
The diaper challenge has formally come to an end. So many of you signed up to help the Avitias by signing up to buy a pack of
diapers. Making sure one child remains clean is expensive, imagine doing that for 3! Thanks to all who gave so generously in this
practical way. If you would like to continue to bless Leo, Cruz and Emi with a pack of diapers every now and then, go right ahead! The boys would be delighted and so would their parents. Just check on the size with Chelsea or Edgardo first. Thank you!
