REVERSE OFFERING Every year for Thanksgiving our deacons put on a reverse offering. This type of offering is to support the local food banks in Abbotsford. Right next door at Cascade Community Church a new non-profit grocery market aimed at ending food insecurity has opened called the Gathering Mar-kit, which was started by Hieke Morton. Gathering Mar-kit aims to provide the dignity of choice and convenience through affordable groceries and ready-made meal kits for single-parent families. This past Sunday, October 2 we passed around little slips of paper with different non perishable items on them. These are much needed items that the Gathering Markit needs for their meal kits. This Sunday, October 9, we ask that you bring whatever item you pulled out as a donation. Items can also be brought anytime during office hours before October 9.

If you didn’t get a slip of paper or want to bring more items, below are the items that are in need:

  • Barley – pot
  • Basmati Rice
  • Black Beans can 398 mL
