Gale’s Friday Update – January 22, 2021

Gale Force is back!

In spite of Covid, The Coldest Night of the Year event is back!  This fundraiser, spearheaded by Woolwich Community Services (WCS), depends on community support to be successful.

In this regard, our church will once again put a team together to help raise funds for this very worthy cause.  It is being called a virtual event due to Covid.  So many things will be different than the last two years, however, what is the same is that the funds raised will go to support the wonderful things that WCS does for our community and beyond.

To date, we have 12 committed members on our Gale Force team, all of whom will do the walk and seek pledges from friends, family and our church community.  If participating is not your thing, perhaps you can consider offering to sponsor our team, and ultimately supporting our community.

If you are interested in learning more about this event,

contact Diane Coulman for details:

Go, Gale Force, Go!

“I’ve always wanted to hear a sermon about…”

Rev. Scott is still taking suggestions for sermon topics.  Finish the sentence…”I’ve always wanted to hear a sermon about…” and email your sentence to Rev. Scott at scott.sinclair@galepresbyterian.com

It can be based on scripture, on a social concern, on whatever is important to your life now.
