Our Refugee Family
Great news – Marwan and his bride arrived in Canada on July 6th and are busily getting acclimated to their new lives in Canada. Thanks to everyone at Lambeth United for their continued support during this lengthy endeavour. We welcomed Marwan and Kseniia following church on Sunday, September 30th. Congratulations to Marwen & Kseniia who are expecting their first child in August. We are holding a baby shower in the parlour at 12:15 on June 9th – everyone welcome. The Outreach Committee would like to buy them one large gift. Carolyn Murray will be accepting your financial contributions toward this purchase at coffee hour next Sunday, June 2nd.
A warm thank you to the members of Arva United Church who generously donated $970.00 to our fundraising campaign and thanks to the Two Pianos Four Hands concert put on by Kilworth United Church – over $400.00 was raised in support of our campaign.
