Elmvale Presbyterian Church and the Elmvale Food Bank:

The Elmvale Presbyterian Church, Mission and Outreach Committee put on a wonderful BBQ lunch in August that was very well attended and which managed to raise over $1000 to support the Elmvale Food bank.  Great work by the Mission and Outreach committee and our congregation who made this happen. “Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers.” (Romans 12:13)

 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.
