During the season of Advent, we collect and/or knit toques, mittens, scarves, etc., to donate to those in need in Edmonton. The items are displayed on “The Mitten Tree” in the church sanctuary.
The Quilting Group meets upstairs at the church on the last Wednesday of each month from 9 am - 3 pm to make quilts to be sent to the inner city as well as overseas.
