Each year at LOGOS we strive to run an amazing program for our Youth and Adult Participants alike. Lifetime bonds between God, Adults and Youth are at the core of all that we do. We want to thank everyone who has participated in LOGOS in the past and want to invite ANYone in the Congregation to join us for the 2018/19 year. Part of the requirement of attending LOGOS is that every family participate in a MANDATORY meeting before LOGOS starts in the fall. The purpose of this meeting is to re-aquaint ourselves with God’s vision for us. We revisit the WHY we do what we do and listen for where God might be calling us to share our gifts. This year we are scheduling 2 meetings in order that if you cannot attend one, you will be able to make the other. The dates of the meetings are Thursday September 6 at 7 pm or Sunday September 9 at 11:30 am. Please mark your calendars now and join us for a fun-filled year! You won’t be disappointed!
Mission Moments: International Day of Families (May 15): When families are able to form safe and nurturing relationships, meet their basic needs and lift each other up, it can have a significant impact on a country’s well-being and development. On the International Day of Families, we reflect on the importance of responding to families facing hunger, poverty and injustice across the globe. The compassionate youth at Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Beaconsfield, QC know how important it is to empower vulnerable families to achieve their full potential. The group filled a piggy bank with $144 for PWS&D’s Farming for the Future Sunday School Challenge, which equips rural families in Guatemala with seeds, tools and training to improve their food security and nutrition.
PWS&D connects Canadians to the needs of families across the globe
