Moving Fundraiser

The Commons has found a new home and will be sharing space with St. John’s Lutheran Church on the corner of Wilson & Hughson starting on Sunday September 9th. We really value a space where we can be creative so we will be using St. John’s Community Room below the sanctuary. We see a lot of potential in this space but we could use a little help to make it work for our Worship Gatherings.

Moving Fundraiser:

Out goal is to raise $1600 by the end of September. The two big purchases we are looking at are:

  1. LIGHTS: We want to string cafe style patio lights in the center of the room as a focal point to create a welcoming environment and to emphasis that church is not a performance but rather a gathering of people.
  2. PORTABLE SOUND SYSTEM: We are looking at purchasing an all in one Bose tower system that is very easy to use and functions as both a monitor and a speaker so that everyone in the room can hear. It is very simple to use and can be set up very quickly.

As of September 25th we have raised $1369, and we could use your help reaching our goal. Every donation helps whether it is $500, $50 or $5.

If you would like to help contribute you can donate to The Commons through:

  • Cash: Just put the money in an envelope and put your name and address on it so we can give you a tax receipt. Money can be given to anyone on our leadership team (Jeanette Eby, Krista Vanderhout, or Randy Neudorf)

No Gathering on Canada Day

We like to switch things up for the summer at The Commons. For Canada Day (Sunday July 1st) we will be having a BBQ & Potluck in place of our Regular Gathering. We will meet at 6pm in front of the Hooper Law Building (128 Hughson St. N.) and then drive over to Ed & Karin’s House together. Email kristavanderhout[AT]gmail.com for more info.

Starting Sunday July 8th we will moving our gatherings outside for the rest of July & August.

We will be meeting Sundays at 6pm right beside Beasley Park at 55 Elgin St. (affectionately nicknamed Fort Elgin)). Bring a blanket or a chair to be comfortable. If it rains we just head inside to Fort Elgin. Although we have never been accused of being formal, these park gatherings are very creative, laid back and inter-generational.

Other Dates to keep in mind:

  • Sunday August 12th – 6pm Lake Gathering in Confederation Park. More details will be posted closer to the date.
  • Sunday September 2nd – 10am – Beach Day.
    We will meet at 55 Elgin to car pool. Adults are $15 and Kids are $5.
