Please let us continue to pray, that those displaced by the fires would experience God’s love, comfort, generosity and hospitality.
Let us also show our love as friends and neighbours in some practical ways. Avenue Church will be taking a love offering in addition to our regular offering. Money gathered will go to World Renew Disaster Relief Services. This organization serves as the development, disaster relief and justice arm of our denomination and has an incredible track record of helping communities rebuild over the long term. (Many of us had opportunity to work with them helping rebuild in High River after the floods).
If you would like to give online, please visit their website by clicking here. Donations are tax deductible.
Over the next few weeks, we will be gathering items at our Sunday gatherings to take to distribution sites. The current need is for:
- Diapers and baby wipes
- NEW toiletries (soap, shampoo, tampons, toothpaste, razors, deodorant, etc.)
- NEW pillows
- NEW shoes
- Donations for the Food Bank
- Pet food
Please stay tuned over the coming weeks as we find out how the needs change and how we may best be able to assist.
