Flowers in the Church May 20

The flowers in the Sanctuary today are to the Glory of God and in loving memory of a dear husband Glenn and daughter Susan, given by Betty Whittington.

NOW THAT WE HAVE AN ELEVATOR PLEASE USE NEW MAIN ENTRANCE!!!

If you are bringing in food for our potluck lunch, there will be a cart in the main entrance area. Leave your goodies there and we will see that they get down to the kitchen.

Our elevator is installed and working. Operators have been trained and everything is ready for you to come to Sunday's service. Make sure to tell everyone that is not coming because they can't manage the stairs. Please let them know we are now accessible!!! And to top it all off we have 2 fully accessible washrooms as well.

Trillium logo400x400 100_4217 The Ontario Trillium Foundation *Trillium News! Trillium has granted us $111,400 for our Accessibility Project, and the cheque will be arriving shortly. This puts us ever-so-close to our goal. We are moving ahead with construction, even though we are still a bit short of the money required for the project. Some of you have been holding off - maybe not really believing we would ever get this far. Please now consider a pledge to help us with the final push in our goal of making Epiphany fully accessible. Thank you to all who have given to this project in faith, even when we were still a long way off. Thank you in advance to those who are about to give. Our prayers are being answered, but there's still a way to go. We are planning to start mid June.

Joyce Gillan

Here's a note from Joyce's daughter

Today, my inspiring mother passed away. I have always wanted to be as brave, adaptable and empathetic as Joyce Gillan. She faced extreme health problems particularly in the last year. Today, as per her wishes, nature was allowed to run its course. Mom's close family will always treasure their memories of her and try to live up to her example. We know friends, particularly those at Elmwood Long Term Care will miss her humour, understanding and baking! Thanks Mom for all of your heart for so long. Will miss you forever.
