Watch for the date of our next Indigenous Worship Service
A blanket exercise was held on Saturday December 16, 2023. This was a participatory workshop that helps
participants understand the historic and contemporary relationship
between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada.
The Blanket Exercise teaches how the colonization of the land we now know as Canada impacted the people who lived here long before settlers arrived. Through this exercise participants explored the nation-to-nation relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada, how this relationship has been damaged over the years, and how they can work toward reconciliation.

The children were off school for Orange Shirt day on October 2, 2023 - so we ran our one-day VBS then. The children learned what Indigenous means, why we need truth and reconciliation, and what it means for us. We made Bannock, and did a few crafts, including painting more rocks for our display at the front of our church - remembering those who didn't come home.
