Just in Time for Christmas
In addition to your regular giving in support of the life and work of Siloam United Church, we are making it easier than ever to complete your Christmas shopping. You can order gift cards to support important Social Justice and Outreach projects while at the same time checking off items on your Christmas List!
This year we have gift cards which you can use as a meaningful gift for an important person in your life while contributing to the pledges already made to these organizations in our 2017 budget to assist with the important Mission of our Church. Gift cards are issued in the amounts of either $5, $10, or $20. Income tax receipts will be issued when your total order exceeds $10.00.
Purchase your gift cards weekdays at the church office or following Sunday worship throughout Advent.Social Justice and Outreach Gift Cards
While in many United Church congregations across the country summer is often a quieter time in the life of the community, this summer at Siloam has been filled with activity and new life!
After completing an application last winter, we learned in late April that Siloam had received a $27 000 grant from the Canadian government to employ students over the course of the summer. Through this generous support, we hired six young people who have been active in our Open Mic Coffee House program over the past several years. From May to August they offered their many gifts through activities including: faith formation leadership with our Sunday School and Summer Day Camp; the creation of homemade paper cards and garden ornaments that will be sold at the church later in the year; and the planting and tending of a garden on church property with the vegetables being donated to the ELUCO Food Cupboard and the London Food Bank.
We will still be harvesting vegetables from the garden for the next few weeks and we are well beyond our halfway point of harvesting and receiving donations to meet our goal of giving 160 baskets of fresh produce to those in need for our 160th anniversary year. Please keep your donations coming in up until September 24th!
Another highlight of the summer was, as always, the Siloam Summer Day Camp. With one of the highest years of attendance in recent years, fifty-five children participated in awesome faith based programming here at Siloam. Many thanks to all our staff and volunteers who made the camp such a joyful experience for all. The Open Mic Coffee Houses also continued over the summer with over forty young people in attendance at each session. We are grateful for the gifts of this summer at Siloam and we look forward to more excitement through the coming fall!
