Christmas Shoe Boxes

Operation Christmas Child
One of the best ways to show the true meaning of Christmas to your children or grandchildren is to do a shoebox with them! It is a practical, hands-on way to share with those in need.

Once again Keele and Maple Leaf are involved in the shoe box campaign for “Operation Christmas Child”. We already have the shoe boxes and info pamphlets available for you to take home. All shoe boxes have to be returned to the church building here at Keele by Sunday November 15th.

This year we collected 47 boxes! Thanks to everyone who generously contributed!

We’re Raising the Roof

Dear Attenders at Keele: We have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that we have finished paying off our loan for the new roof on our addition. The bad news is that we have to finally, after over 100 years, replace the slate roof on the original building. Unfortunately the slate has become a danger and we can no longer repair it.

As a result we asked for quotes from various roofers and have been in talks with the city since the building is listed as a heritage property, this past Sunday (June 21) we made our decision and we are going to have the same steel roof installed that we used on the addition. In order to do that, we are going to have the slate removed. The cost is going to be close to $50,000. We know this is a large expense, but it is also an inescapable expense. Please be praying about how you can support this new project and help keep the property both safe and in good repair.

Our special offering on October 4th was $8,820 and with all other roof offerings thus far we have raised $14,330! Praise the Lord and everyone who has been so generous!
