Greetings! I’ve only just returned this week from Charlottetown, so please accept my apologies for the lack of news last week. 7 of us from Nazareth Lutheran Church journeyed to Prince Edward Island for the Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth Gathering. 1000 kids and their leaders gathered from across Canada to worship, serve, learn and worship together. What an amazing gathering it was! The 7 of us who went are so grateful to the community for their help in getting to this life giving event. We are going to be fundraising for the next CLAY gathering in Thunder Bay in 2018. The bottle drive continues!
The community calendars are ready for pickup at Gates Agencies! Thanks to Trish Ellis for organizing the calendar again this year!
