Outreach at Glebe
Out of the Cold ProgramWe are in our 10th year of serving at Eastminster United’s Out of the Cold program. We go each 4th Friday from November to March and head out afterwards to a nearby Greek restaurant for some food and fellowship. We’d love you to join us anytime. At different times of the year, as part of the “collection” part of our service, we gather items of use for particular communities – Out of the Cold, Christian Resource Centre, Food Bank. Throughout these winter month, we are collecting socks, underwear, tuques, mitts, and sweatshirts for Out of the Cold. Want to volunteer? Contact us
Amnesty International Letter Writing CircleOne Sunday each month we gather, during fellowship hour, to write letters for Amnesty International. Andrew Dundass is our co-ordinator, each time providing us with information on a different issue to be addressed. Everyone is welcome and encouraged. Contact us to participate - Next writing circle on April 15
RefugeesLast year we contributed support to the sponsorship of a refugee by Deer Park/Calvin Church. We intend to join in on their next sponsorship as well.
Drawing on biblical stories and the Christian tradition, our youth and children are encouraged to re-imagine these stories for us today. A large part of this re-imagination happens in our own unofficial production house, Goldfish Studios, where we write and perform our own original plays, including our famous Christmas Pageant. Our Youth and children help lead worship on a weekly basis and serve our community through projects like Out of the Cold, or volunteering to lead a coffee hour after service. Sunday School is a safe place for all ages and offers an opportunity to build bonds of friendship that will last a lifetime.
Our Sunday School philosophy is simple, we are a family and we have fun
