FALL 2021
      Members of Armour Heights Presbyterian Church in Toronto, Ont., are very proud to reveal the addition of two new rainbow “Friendship Benches” at the front entrance of the church building. The benches celebrate the congregation’s partnership with Mosaic and our commitment to create inclusive spaces that welcome all people in our community. Community passers-by have already been checking out the benches and resting their feet. May these benches celebrate visibly that God’s love includes every- one. Thank you to Mosaic for partnering with Armour Heights on this community project, the “bench team” for their time and coordination and to Rick King for expertly installing the benches.
Together again! After 17 months of worshipping and meeting online, members and adherents at St. James Presbyterian Church in Stouffville, Ont., gathered in person again on July 11, 2021. The outdoor Sunday morning service, held on the church grounds, featured masked and distanced worshippers and live music. Following a summer break, plans are in the works for services to return to the sanctuary in September.

Staff and campers celebrated the new sign. Camp Geddie is owned and operated by the Synod of the Atlantic Provinces, and is located in Merigomish, Pictou County, N.S.
