What's Happening: November 11 - November 18

Sunday, November 11
Worship Service, 10:30 am, Sanctuary
The Silent Hero: A Remembrance Day Service
Rev. Diane Rollert with music by Sandra Hunt and guest trumpeter Charles-Antoine Solis
We often think of heroes as very public figures, but what about the silent, unsung heroes in our lives and in historic moments who truly save the day? As we honour our veterans with our Remembrance Day wreath and remember all those whose lives have been touched by war, may we consider the quiet, unassuming heroes who lead us towards peace.
