The Atlantic Mission Society of St. David’s Presbyterian Church in Toney River, N.S., hosted a Mission Awareness Sunday service on April 24. A sample of knitted articles (baby clothing, headbands, mittens) was displayed along the front banister and has been donated to the Winnifred Opportunity Shop in Pictou. Sunday School children (pictured above) took part in the service, singing “Jesus Loves Me,” along with two youth group members who played on their fiddles “The Strength of God’s Hand” and “Sweet Hour of Prayer.” And choir member, Angela Cromwell, sang “His Eye Is on the Sparrow.” AMS members Liz Bowron and Beverly Patterson read scripture, Marjorie Fraser spoke on the history of mission work, and the Rev. Enjei Achah delivered a sermon entitled, “We Must Obey God—That Is Our Mission!”
      Susan Currie, Parish Social Worker for Place of Hope Indigenous Presbyterian Church in Winnipeg, Man., was hon- oured on her birthday at the church on April 24 for her 20 years of service to the community.
A group photo of the congregation at Bethel Presbyterian Church in Trenton, N.S., was taken after they sent out 300 copies of “The Shoreline,” a community newsletter to the Pictou Landing community. The response to the newslet- ter was exciting, and some very positive feedback was received. The group picture was taken in front of a quilt that commemorates 140 years of the Atlantic Mission Society. The quilt was designed and stitched by Mary Agnes Condon of Bethel Church.
