News for the Week of February 10, 2013

You will want to read about the many activities and events planned.  This Sunday is “New Members” Sunday when we formalize the membership for six adults during the worship services.  I hope you can join us.

And also…

Following the success of our “small group” project this Fall, we will be offering another opportunity for small group study with Jim Clubine’s Lenten Bible Study.  Check out the announcements for details and be sure to sign up, either at the church or by sending me an email.

Don’t forget February 13th is Ash Wednesday.  Please join us for a special worship service at 7:30 p.m.

Sadly, I wish to share that church member Henry Wong’s brother Colin died suddenly last week.  Here are the details:

Colin Wong was suddenly taken from us on January 30, 2013 at the age of 53 from a heart attack. Beloved husband of Sylvia and loving father to his sons Geoffrey and Michael. He was a cherished son of Moo Lan and a dear brother of Susan, Henry (Cynthia Yee), Frank and Sandra (David Mah). Colin will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by his family, friends and co-workers.  Friends may visit the Jerrett Funeral Home, 6191 Yonge Street (2 lights south of Steeles, on the east side) on Friday from 6:00pm to 9:0pm and Saturday from 9:30am to 10:30am. A funeral service will commence on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 10:30am in the funeral home chapel with a luncheon to follow (location will be announced at the service). Private Cremation. 

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated by the family.

And finally, in conjunction with February being Heart Health month, here is a recommended website link with some good information from our Parish Nursing Health Ministry:
