WMC's Advent Giving Project this year is personal care kits for Str8 UP. In Saskatoon, Str8 UP “assists individuals in mastering their own destiny in liberating themselves from gangs and criminal street lifestyles.” This includes work in community and correctional outreach, job and life skills training, parenting and family development, and community awareness and understanding. A specific need in this season is personal care kits for clients that are entering into a 30 day treatment facility, as they are often coming from prison or homelessness.

Throughout December, WMC is collecting the items below to put together care packages. If you’d like to contribute financially, you can make a cheque out to Wildwood Mennonite Church with “Str8 UP project” in the memo, and we’ll use those donations to complete as many kits as we can.

Personal Care Kit items needed:

  • housecoat and slippers
  • toiletries including soap, shampoo, toothpaste, etc. (alcohol free)
  • lotion
  • laundry soap and softener/dryer sheets for (4) four weeks
  • calling cards for use in pay phones 
  • writing materials, ie. notebooks, binder, pens, pencils, and highlighter 
  • crocs / slip on sandals for wearing in the shower
  • dental floss 
  • cigarettes
  • lighter
  • feminine hygiene products 
  • women’s cosmetics

Join us for this year's version of the Advent Choir! We'll be practicing one song to be performed in the "Christmas Sunday" service, Dec 22. Practices will be Dec 15 and 22, 9:45-10:30am. All are welcome!

 

Sundays in Advent, 10:35 a.m. in the sanctuary // Our services this season will begin with a bonus pre-service carol singing time starting at 10:35 a.m. No special skills required, come early to enjoy!

 

MCC is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2020! They are hoping that churches and quilting groups across Canada will participate in making 6500 quilts on January 18, 2020. Please keep that date open to join the Needles and Knots Quilting Group at Wildwood for a quilting bee for MCC. We are inviting  you to give us help. This is a day for you to participate in the process of making a blanket. The quilters will be making blankets from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. but you are invited to come and go as you are able. All supplies needed will be provided. Please bring a bag lunch for yourself if you come during the noon hour. Coffee will be provided. This invitation is open to everyone.

 

The Christmas season can be one of tension: overtime vs holidays, crowds vs loneliness, joy vs anxiety, Peace on Earth vs Are You Kidding Me??... Where is God in the midst of all our longings and expectations and giving and receiving? Let's explore a very human journey into the presence of Immanuel.
