Lenten Challenge

Hallelujah, Easter is here! Let’s celebrate our journey! Throughout Lent we have asked you to consider a selection of different challenges, including Reflections, Actions, Donations, or small Fundraising ideas to support the church. We made it!  Easter is finally here, and it is time to celebrate our accomplishments!

During the Easter Sunday worship service, you will be asked to write some of the challenges that you attempted using the “chat” function. Add up your fundraising efforts for the church and your contributions to the food bank, drop in shelter, or animal rescue groups. Share your accomplishments, your frustrations, and your successes. As a community we will celebrate or commiserate with you! (Need a reminder? Click on the various weeks below to see all of the different challenges.)

Starting April 6, make a trek to the church to drop off your extra fundraising cheque for Scarboro UC as well as your items for other Calgary charities. Laura will be accepting deliveries on weekdays between 10am-3pm.  If you cannot come to the church, ask a friend to bring any items to the church, or call the office to arrange a pickup. Your extra financial gifts can be sent by e-transfer to: [email protected] (continued below)

Lenten Challenge Calendar, week 6

Since we cannot have our usual fundraising and community building events right now, we do ask you to seriously consider participating in these fundraising challenges for the church.  Think of it as a little extra, over and above your normal weekly or monthly amount. This is our gift to the church, instead of buying tickets for an event, or splurging on baking & books at last year’s Fall Faire.  All of these gifts will help the church meet our operating budget for 2021…until we can actually get together again!
