A new packet of cards has come in. We are to pray over them this Sunday and ask people to take five packs each to give away.
Those not taken will be given out at AppleFest. The five business-size cards promote five courses, offered free, on line through a sister church plant “Redeemer Ajax”, their website being redeemthecommute.com Excellent course offerings for busy people.
Christianity 101, Marriage, Parenting Children, Parenting Teenagers, Daily Challenges. A nice compliment to our other courses offered in person through the day or evening, at St John’s or around our Deanery.
Photo below shows Nancy Davidson, David Crowe, Laura Frisina with Rev Ryan Sim, church planter of Redeemer Ajax and the inspiration behind Redeem the Commute free, on line courses, including the daily challenge. Ryan is delivering the packets of cards to be given away, Sept, 2015

Summer 2015 saw change, as one of St John’s neighbours on Queen Street for many years, the demolition of the former Bowmanville Senior Public School and before that known as Bowmanville High School, making way for a senior’s apartments. We hope the hill at the back will still be available for sleighing in the winter!

Migrant Workers Welcome Event was held Sat June 6 at St John’s with 23 people present for dinner, meet a nurse, doctor, see the health related displays, play dominoes, get to know one another. Some of the workers have been coming to Canada from Jamaica for 23 years, some from Mexico for many years as well. There are about 250 workers in our community from those two countries whose labour means fresh fruit and vegetables for the local markets such as Watson’s and Algoma Orchards, Links hydroponic greenhouse and Everfresh in Newcastle.
