Good news! In February, St. Thomas, Morden was faced with having to re-shingle our roof with not a lot of money in our fund.
We are grateful for help from the Diocese of Rupert’s Land Mission Fund, the Anglican Foundation, diocesan leaders, and for our church family that worked very hard and had fun as we rallied support from the community and beyond through the “Raise the Roof” campaign and events. We even put a float in the Corn & Apple Parade with Sunday School and adults promoting our Strawberry Haven Ice Cream. The roof is now finished and paid in full! Plus an anonymous donor offered to give $5,000 towards painting the outside and all of that is also complete and paid for. God has indeed blessed us through the spirit within St. Thomas, and the very generous support in the community and the wider Anglican Church.
God’s building is refreshed and renewed, and on October 20 we are looking forward to having Bishop Geoff come and bless the building and us. We want to ensure we continue to be filled with the Holy Spirit. What good is a renewed church building if God’s people are not also refreshed and renewed? – Diane Guilford
