FEBRUARY 14 IS HAVE A HEART DAY! The Presbyterian Church in Canada is inviting us to be a part of something special. February 14th has been designated as “Have a Heart Day” in support of Canada’s Indigenous children. We are invited to send Valentine’s Day cards to our local Member of Parliament to encourage the provision of resources for the health, education and well-being of children in Indigenous communities. Next Sunday, February 11th, you will find Valentine’s Day cards created by our Columbakids Co-ordinator for us to sign and send to MP Neil Ellis. The children of our congregation will be collecting the cards, along with their own creations, and presenting them in worship for a special prayer before they are sent. These cards are not meant to be political statements, but a recognition of the needs of Indigenous children in our nation. Last year over 6500 cards were sent to elected officials across the country. We look forward to making a difference as our nation supports vulnerable children.
