11.  ADULT FELLOWSHIP GROUP: The January event is scheduled for Saturday 27th January at 7 the Church Hall (weather permitting).  This is a fun night (we hope) as we “shed” a few hours over quizzes and games and together enjoy coffee/tea and dessert items .So come along and display your smarts by answering the quizzes correctly...and perhaps winning a prize and having fun with a game or two!

Members attending are requested to bring along a dessert item. Jean Liberty and Elizabeth Fletcher are the organizers of this event.

 12.  PRESBYTERIAN SHARING: Ready to go back to work

Presbyterians Sharing is helping to transform the lives of people in Montreal’s Little Burgundy neighbourhood. The statistics for Little Burgundy are grim: 2/3 of children and youth live below the poverty line and 32% of students drop out before finishing high school. But Tyndale St.-Georges Community Centre is helping provide community members with the tools they need to realize their dreams, at every life stage. Tyndale’s employment programs not only teach job search techniques, but also build self-esteem and life skills. Jane shares, “I came to Tyndale during the lowest time in my life, and I decided to give it a shot. I was looking for something to bring back my self-confidence that would enable me to go back to the workforce. And Tyndale delivered exactly what I was looking for. And now I’m strong, I’m back again, and I’m ready to go back to work”.
