Community Dinner Saturday Evening

It is our week to do the community dinner and we could always use help at Golden Ears United Church on Dewdney Trunk and 222nd.  If you would like to join us please come around 5:30 and join the fun!

Fall Fair – Sept 30, 10:00am – 1:00pm

The Fair is coming up fast!  Just one week to go!  We can use baking, attic treasures, jams and jellies, produce (if you have any left in your garden), Christmas items, but most of all help on the day and the word to be spread around.  This is a way for  us to get to know our community and contribute to our community.   The proceeds from this Fair will go to The Starfish Backpack program. (read about it in the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows News

Lord God,

defend your Church from all false teaching

and give to your people knowledge of your truth,

that we may enjoy eternal life

in Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

PRAYER AFTER COMMUNION

Keep, O Lord, your Church, with your perpetual mercy;

and, because without you our human frailty cannot but fall,

keep us ever by your help from all things hurtful,

and lead us to all things profitable to our salvation;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
