I would like to thank our staff, contractors and volunteers. The pictures below are by no means exhaustive, and we'll keep adding to the list.
"So those who were engaged in the work laboured, and the repairing went forward in their hands, and they restored the house of God to its proper condition and strengthened it (2 Chron 24:13)."
Thanks to Barry Mullin for painting the candle racks and the tabernacle candle holder, and for polishing the cross on the baptismal font; to Stephen Farnworth and Bill Young for cleaning up a small flood in the church basement; and to Donna Kozak for the Easter flowers.
Delta Bingo and Gaming Center
Church and Bingo?
Some of you may be wondering why we keep announcing the Delta Games bingo hall on the website and in our bulletin. It is one of the requirements to obtain funding from them since we cannot participate in the volunteer activities at this time. Perhaps you may also be wondering about the objectionability of placing advertisements for bingo in a church bulletin. After all, isn’t it gambling? Well yes and no. As with any form of entertainment, if done in excess, and without constraint and discretion, it can become a problem behaviour. However, for approximately $20 you can have an enjoyable evening playing bingo in a clean, friendly environment. Not any more expensive than a night at the movies. For many seniors, it is one of the few activities still remaining to them that is fun and sociable, especially now that it is all non-smoking. So bingo away (just do it in moderation please)!
