Fundraising Committee Update:
Donations are starting to add up and we are happy to announce that we are at just over $1.5 million in donations and pledges for the building fund! Have you made your Pledge? We know that there are still those who are wanting to donate or make pledges.
Forms are available at the office or on our website. Or contact one of the committee members to schedule a visit. Remember: no amount is too small!
Grocery Coupons sales are going well and we have just about sold our second batch of Co-op cards. The cards are available before and after church or from committee members. Co-op cards are good across Western Canada for groceries, gas and even aggro supplies! Consider committing to buying a set amount each month to cover your co-op purchases - we make 10% on each card sold! If we can sell $25,000 per month that is $30,000 dollars raised!
Musical Evening: We also would like you to mark your calendars for April 29th at 7:00 pm at the church when we will host a musical evening featuring IL DUO. IL DUO, a dynamic musical comedy group in the style of Smothers Brothers and other comedy duos. Their brand of musical silliness leaves no note unsung and no heart string unplucked! IL Duo has been stunning audiences since early 2010, and plan to stun the rest of the world very soon. This zany live theatre performance has broad mass appeal and leaves its audiences rolling in the aisles with a healthy dose of audience participation and some unexpected takes on some well known and beloved pop songs.
"It may be difficult to believe, but there is a chance during this 60-minute musical comedy you will laugh till you cry at a grown man singing like a cat in heat....the two tenors of Il Duo are so appealing they can get audience members to do almost anything!" - Margo Goodhand - Winnipeg Free Press - Four Stars (Winnipeg Fringe Festival Review 2011)
We are looking for musical talent from the youth of our church to perform before the concert. Please let Len Long know of any potential performers. Tickets will be available soon!
Box Social: We are also planning a Box Social in June! More details soon.
