    The Gathering 

    Next Gathering is September 15

    The Gathering is a ministry of SCV. Every month on the 3rd Saturday, a group meets to prepare and celebrate a meal together. During this time, a store is run upstairs and the proceeds go towards the Way family in Zimbabwe.
    The Gathering is centered around 4 values: friends, faith, food and fun.To learn more about what’s happening and how you can be involved please talk to Geordie or Kathy Hull or email or contact Peter or Mary Ellen Fitch (506-466-5725). Also you can check us out on Facebook under “The Gathering”!
    Helpers are always welcome and needed! You can help with set up/ clean up, cooking, or just hang out and have conversation and enjoy people.
    Thanks to all who donate gently used clothing and household items to the Gathering Store.  If you, or someone you know has a need for these items, please contact us and we’ll try to hook you up!

    Amelie’s New Adventure

    “This December, I’ll be going on a service trip to Mexico with an organization based in Ontario called Live Different. I’ll be flying to California and then driving to Baja California, Mexico with the group, where we’ll be working on building a house for a family in need for a little over a week. For a while now, I’ve been doing fundraisers for clean water in developing countries and have helped organizations such as Plan Canada and Me To We, but this will be my first time being really directly involved. I believe that it’s so important to remember how lucky and privileged we are to live where we do and how we do. I think this trip will be very eye-opening for me and am super excited and grateful for this new experience! I’m currently holding an online fundraiser to cover the expenses (not including flights). Even the littlest donation helps and will be very gratefully received. Thank you!” Link to the fundraiser: https://my.livedifferent.com/fundraising/abarha/Amelies-Mexico-Build
