Ten Thousand Villages is a project of Mennonite Central Committee, the outreach arm of the Mennonite and Brethren in Christ churches in North America.  The Festival Sale will be held Friday, October 26, from 12 noon to 8pm and Saturday, October 27 from 9am to 3pm at Kentville Fire Hall, 463 Main St, Kentville. Admission is free. The gifts you buy at the Ten Thousand Villages Sales will give the blessings of steady work, fair wages, and a better life for struggling families around the world.

Freewill offering, reception to follow, all are welcome!

3.  The Portal Youth Association in Kentville has two Job Openings: One is for a Youth Worker and one for a Host Home Coordinator.  Instead of a shelter for youth we will be developing a network of safe housing in individual homes for youth. These homes will be supported and trained.  This is an exciting position that will help end the dangerous 'couch surfing' of teens in transition or crisis.  The Portal is a Christian Organization that had a vision for every youth to have a safe place to call home. For more information, see the bulletin board in the Narthex.

Celebrating Indigenous Culture

Hummingbird Ministries is one of nine Presbyterian Indigenous ministries in Canada supported by gifts to Presbyterians Sharing. It is committed to bringing peace and healing to Indigenous families living in BC's lower mainland. The ministry helps to restore hope by offering regular healing circles; working with the community in art and celebration; and providing educational and healing workshops, Bible studies, children's art and music programs. Hummingbird Ministries also runs a children's dance program in which Indigenous children are taught traditional Metis dances. Known as the Hummingbird Dancers, the children recently performed at a festival in East Vancouver in honor of National Indigenous Peoples Day, which recognized and celebrated the rich cultures of First Nations, Inuit and Metis people in Canada.
