When COVID interrupted church life in March 2020, Anne White and Rev. Bonnie devised a way for our church family to maintain weekly contact with members of our congregation not able to access online Sunday services.
The bulletin bag project was born!
Every Thursday our Administrative Assistant, Nancy VanWiechen, prints church bulletins for five delivery routes. A team of volunteers (Ellen, Kathleen and Anna) puts the bulletin bags together, including a sweet treat, usually home baked and supplied by one of another team of volunteers organized by Anne. Another team (Mary and Gordon, Nancy and Yogi, Carol, Shirley, and Mary) delivers the bags to the doors of approximately 40 congregants. Each team will see everyone over the course of a month. Doorstep visits are enjoyed by residents and volunteers alike.
This is a labour-intensive project:
new volunteers are always welcome. Contact the church office at 902 838 2698.
