The youth group at Thornhill Presbyterian Church in Thornhill, Ont., accompanied by the Rev. Dr. Heather Vais, prepared and served over 150 meals at Evangel Hall Mission in downtown Toronto on Dec. 19, 2021, even with a reduced attendance due to Covid restrictions.

The youth at Armour Heights Presbyterian Church in Toronto, Ont., have been staying connected by baking online together once a month.

That was the week that our Church School curriculum featured the lesson of the widow who gave two coins—all she had.

On Legacy Sunday, Nov. 14, 2021, First Presbyterian Church in Brockville, Ont., dedicated a plaque in honour of Clifford and Mary Wing, who made a bequest to the church in memory of their son Paul. Members of the Wing family attended the service and were delighted to take part. Many thanks to Ross Butler for organizing the creation of the plaque. First Presbyterian Church is grateful to the Wing family and to all who have faithfully remembered the church in their wills, enabling the church to continue its ministry of sharing God’s love in the Brockville community.
