Greetings FMC family. ¡Saludos a todos! May you find refreshment & rest on this holiday weekend, as Canada celebrates 150 years.
Camping at Port Burwell. Come for the day on Saturday July 1, to enjoy the lovely long sandy and shallow beach (2.5 km), with washrooms and some picnic tables close by. We will try to congregate on the beach near Area #3 parking (the middle parking lot). Once you pay your day use entrance fee by the car, you can come and go. Please come join the campers (group campsite #1) for a worship service at 5:15 pm around the campfire, and stay for a potluck supper after the service.
Come for camping, available from Thursday afternoon to Sunday afternoon, arriving whenever you wish. Please let Arli know if you are thinking of coming, but have not signed up. There is a lovely group campsite with lots of trees, picnic tables, a big fire pit, and a bathroom with flush toilets and sinks. Sadly, we don’t have the campsite for Monday, because it was thought that Friday was the holiday. We hope some of you will come camping even if it is a short weekend for you.
The campers and beachgoers will meet at the campsite for a shared worship service at 5:15 pm, followed by a potluck supper, and time around the campfire. We will have sparklers to celebrate Canada Day, but it appears there will not be any fireworks at or near the park.
Sunday/Domingo, July 2 – 10 am worship time during the summer, with refreshments in the East Wing to follow. “Life in the Minor Key” is our focus, taking us into the minor prophets each week. Pioneer Park Christian Fellowship and Stirling Ave Mennonite Church join us for worship on this holiday weekend.
7:00 pm – By popular demand, FMC Sunday night soccer at Waterloo Park continues in July. We meet for casual pickup games on the fields close to the Westmount entrance (located down the hill to the left of the parking lot). Players of all skill levels and experience are welcome to join. Bring a friend, your family or simply come to show your support and enjoy a beautiful stroll through Waterloo Park. Talk to Felipe Gonzalia 519-500-7573 for more info.
Summer Lemonade. Please sign up (or send an email to the church office) if you are willing & able to make & serve refreshments one Sunday in July or August after church. Sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board beside entrance from main parking lot. Instructions have been sent out on listserv, or ask Mary Wright for a copy.
