Newcomer Brunch

We will be hosting a Newcomer Brunch on August 25th at 11:30 am.  This time is especially designed for people who maybe used to come to the parish along time ago and are interested in exploring membership, as well as visitors, and people new to the parish who are interested in learning more about St. Mary's and connecting with others who are new to the community as well.  Interested in attending - Please send an email to elisabeth@stmaryskerrisdale.ca and we will send a formal invitation out!  RSVP the same way!

Greeters & Ushers

Greeters and Ushers Meeting - Sunday, August 11, after 10 am service
(Diocesan School Project – Greeting and Ushering)
 
“Gushers” is a term we have been applying to people filling a couple of roles particularly at the 9:15 service: a) greeting, and b) taking up collection (including dealing with it at the end of the service), and marking for communion. 

We want to divide up the roles into the original ones of greeting and ushering, in order to increase participation, identify and recruit people for each of these distinct ministries according to their gifts, and allow more people to participate in the life of the parish on Sunday mornings. If you are going to be attending a service anyway, this is a great way to be an important and contributing participant!

Interested in being part of this (simple but vital) ministry? Currently serving the parish in any of these roles? Join us Sunday, August 11th, after the 10am service. If you are at all interested, and can't make the brief meeting, or would like to learn more please talk to Rev. Lindsay.

Toy BIBLE Stories

Toy Story 4 is coming to a theater near you soon... but Toy BIBLE Stories is coming to St. Mary's! During summer Sunday School we'll learn that toys can teach us about serving God.

Children love toys. Most toy boxes are full of many different toys. We like to play with different toys for different reasons, but they are all used for one main purpose: to play. All through the Bible God used very different people to carry out God's main purpose: to let the world know who God is and how much God loves us. These lessons will use common toys to teach our children Bible stories about very different people in the Bible who all have something to teach us about living out God’s main purpose. Each week there will even be takeaway resources for the parents too! We hope your children will join us this summer in Sunday School!
