This Sunday at SCV

1. To all Parents from Joy!

Hi Everyone! SOOO…. I’m having a party! I know, I know, I’m always looking for a reason to have a party! But this Sunday SCHOOL’S OUT! I have rented the Play Place at the Boys and Girls Club for our kiddos!
You can drop off your kids to my helpers and I at 10:30am on Sunday morning at the Boys and Girls Club outside, where you will need to sign a waver before you leave. We will play games outside for 30 minutes and then we will head inside for a fun time on the play place… along with a snack time!
After you drop your kiddos off you can make your way to SCV and participate in church without the stress of trying to contain your children…. Ahhh…. Now I’m a little jealous! haha.
Then don’t forget to come and actually GET YOUR KIDS! But take your time, as I have the building until 1pm.
***If you need help with drives please contact me and I’ll help make that happen

The Bonfire Festival is about performers and art appreciators coming together to share work, build connections, and be inspired.

This year’s festival features artists from across Canada, with the aim of sparking dialogue from coast to coast in recognition of Canada’s 150th.

The 2017 Bonfire Festival lineup includes free concerts and workshops, collaborative outdoor art projects, and family-friendly art events.

Come hear some amazing shows on the banks of the St. Croix, get new ideas and fuel from the workshops, and enjoy the height of summer in beautiful New Brunswick!

The Gathering

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!
