Communion

Communion Sunday

Today is Communion Sunday. The Communion offering will go to the Manitoba Interfaith Immigration Council, which supports the refugees coming across the borders at Emerson through the Welcome Place program. Manitoba has recently seen an increase in the arrivals of people undertaking dangerous and long journeys to find peace and safety. This fund is intended to provide direct aid to those arriving in Emerson, Manitoba. It will be used to provide basic necessities upon arrival: food, shelter, warm clothes, etc. Further information about the Manitoba Interfaith Immigration Council can be found here. Communion envelopes may be found on the hall or narthex tables and in your offering envelope box.
