The Outreach Committee invites you to join the Advent journey through the United Church of Canada’s Gifts with Vision program. This year funds raised will be shared between a global and local outreach partner. Bicycles for Pastors in Zambia - Pastors in the United Church of Zambia travel up to 80 kilometres from home, often over poor roads with no vehicle, to offer pastoral care and support to the rural communities they serve. A bicycle is an efficient and economical way to reach their flock. It can even be used to carry other passengers, livestock, or supplies like planks or sacks of corn to those who need them. At the Wasauksing First Nation United Church Food Bank near Parry Sound, all are welcome to come and enjoy breakfast every Thursday. After breakfast, guests can visit the food bank pantry to select meat (including wild game), milk, fresh fruitand vegetables, eggs, and other staples. Would your office co-workers, neighbours, hockey team, bowling team, extended family etc. be interested in capturing the true meaning of Christmas giving? Simply make out a cheque payable to Aurora United Church, marked Gifts with Vision and place gift on the collection plate or bring it to the AUC office, lower level of Trinity Anglican Church. Our goal is to raise $3500. Gift acknowledgement letters are available from the AUC office if you are making a donation as a gift. Watch the thermometer each week at church to see how close we are to our goal!
