SOCIAL JUSTICE COMMITTEE
ORIENTATION FOR JEREMIAH'S FIELD
Are you interested in having an opportunity to get to know a refugee and accompany them in their adjustment to a new country? Jeremiah's Field will be hosting an orientation session after worship on Sunday, September 25th in the Upper Club Room. The purpose of the orientation is to offer more information about the companion program which pairs members from Bloor Street and elsewhere with a refugee working towards repaying a microloan. This is a wonderful opporunity to not only support the Jeremiah's Field program and help refugees access much needed financial resources but to also potentially form a meaningful relationship. This event is open to anyone interested - no volunteer commitment required. If you have any questions, please speak with Liz Tinker, Chair of Social Justice.
Are you interested in helping with serving Communion, one or two or more times in the coming months? If so,
please contact Gaye-Frances Alexander (416-698-8669) or firstname.lastname@example.org. This includes anyone who has, or has never before helped with communion.
ASSISTED LISTENING SYSTEM
Assisted Listening System devices are available for sign-out at Sunday morning services. Please see the audio operator at the soundboard. They can be returned to the operator at the end of the service.
