    The Gathering

    Next Gathering is October 21.

    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!

    Andrew Smith has started a new initiative, a subscription podcast of spiritual songs, many with a post-church flavour. We have shared some of the songs from this collection at SCV over the last couple of years. Think of your subscription to ‘This Light Lingers – A Year Of Song’ as a monthly contemplative podcast. Two songs per month will be released for 12 months – a year of song! EnJOY! You can subscribe here.
