Unwrapping Gifts from God—Living a Life of Gratitude

The world in lockdown has been unsettling: enforced separation from family and friends, economic uncertainty, rampant unemployment, and now a world power seemingly on the brink of eruption. In the midst of all that negativity and our altered lives, it may be difficult to discern the wonderful gifts we have all received from God.

This four-week online course hopes to keep us on track. Through scripture, questions, and prayer, we will recognize and give thanks for four gifts we have received:

  • God in Creation,
  • God in our lives,
  • God in Jesus
  • and the opportunity of always starting again.

We will discuss the importance of gratitude for these gifts. Everyone is welcome. Bring a friend!

The Story behind our

Tracking Organ

Our magnificent three manual, tracker-action organ was installed in the chancel of the church in the spring of 1982 and dedicated to the Glory of God and in memory of those who died in the First World War and the Second World War.

The organ, built by the Karl Wilhelm Company of Mont St. Hilaire, Quebec, has a classical continental design. The case is made of white oak and the pipe shades are of carved butternut. Voiced in the classic French style, its 36 stops and 50 ranks are capable of interpreting a wide variety of organ literature.

Installation required considerable changes to the chancel including moving the altar forward and arranging choir seating to either side. These renovations prompted the design and production of our award-winning Benedicite Kneelers, done in needlepoint by a dedicated group of church members.
