Elmvale Presbyterian Church generously supports the ministry of Presbyterians Sharing on a yearly basis. Presbyterians Sharing is the national church fund that supports the mission and ministries we do together in Canada and around the world.
Presbyterian World Service and Development (PWS&D) is a national ministry that responds to emergencies, conflict, poverty and injustice throughout the world. Each year we raise a significant amount of money as we partner with the national church to help others around the world who are in need.
Each year the church hosts a Shrove Tuesday all you can eat Pancake Supper from 5 – 7 p.m. Adults will pay $10, children ten and under $5 and three and under are free.
Proceeds from this year’s event went to the David Busby Centre in Barrie.
During the Lenten season a project is undertaken by the congregation. This year we are collecting outreach bags for Arise Ministry in Toronto. (Click here for a list of needed items.) Financial contributions to assist in the filling of some bags will also be received.
Annually, in conjunction with the Maple Syrup Festival, the church hosts a Chili Luncheon. Served from 11:00-2:00, the price for a great meal of chili, roll, sweet treat and drink is $5.00 for adults, $3.00 for children 4-12 years, and free for children 3years and under. Proceeds are used to support a local mission(s) designated each year.
The last Sunday in July has, for the past few years, been a celebration of music as people come together at Heritage Park to have a BBQ and sing favourite hymns and gospel songs to raise funds in aid of someone or something needing help and support.
During the Advent season a project is undertaken by the church family for a designated mission. Christmas food hampers along with gifts are also collected for local families. Food for the Elmvale Food Bank is also collected.
