It’s also the month the Presbyterian Church in Canada celebrates “Heritage Sunday” when we acknowledge our heritage as Christians and Presbyterians. With that in mind, our movie feature this month is a fun play on history as we host another Sunday Night at the Movies on Sunday, February 18 at 6:30 p.m. and present “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian”. It’s a wild ride as historic figures from the past come to life. Suitable for all ages.

Service of Hope/ Blue Christmas Service
Join us on Thursday, December 15 @ 7:00 p.m. for our annual Service of Hope. For many, Christmas marks a difficult anniversary of a loss or heightens the sense of loneliness they feel. For others, the hectic pace of the Christmas season is overwhelming and they just want some peace. Our Service of Hope is a way we stop in the midst of the season and allow ourselves to be blessed by the peace of God as we reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.
