2018 Community Memberships
As a reminder, memberships run on a calendar basis so please be sure to renew your membership at the church office or online for 2018 to ensure your status remains active! Currently, we have no active student members. Parents of young adults aged 18-25 and attending a post secondary institution, please encourage them to pay their dues. Doing so as young adults will ensure that they too have a community for their future use. Our church and community can only continue to grow when we inspire, encourage and embrace our youth!

Greek School
We had a festive time at Greek School, right before Christmas! Our lovely teacher, Nancy Koutselas, prepared a traditional craft for our students. The traditional sailing boat the signifies the Greeks decorating the sailing boats in the harbour to welcome the sailors coming home during this season. Click here to see what the students made! Thank you to all the teachers for helping and participating!
