Parking lot mission

SPPC is taking a new approach to mission this Fall.  Beginning in September, we're inviting local youth to use the parking lot for ball hockey.  The congregation and session is very excited about this undertaking.  In previous years we've focused our mission efforts on foreign fields (Malawi for example) or on Victoria (socks for Our Place.)  The Saanich Peninsula was not seen as a mission field.
Now, with the encouragement of Presbytery, we're looking to make a difference in our own back yard.

The project will be run as an after school activity for children/youth aged 6-12 living in our neighbourhood.  Initial plans include parking lot activities such as basketball, ball hockey, tether-ball, badminton and various races/games.  If it rains, or freezes, or snows, we'll move indoors for a movie and popcorn, or other inside activities.  Cookies will be included at all events.

To begin, we're having an activity/info session for all interested children and parents at the church starting at 4:00 pm on Saturday, September 10, 2016.  At that time we'll discuss with all interested parties the best weekly time for the majority of participants.  At this initial event there will be BBQ as well as cookies, sports, games and more information.

Please join us at 9296 E. Saanich Rd. N. Saanich (near airport traffic circle) at 4:00 pm on Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016.  Play games, hang out, eat cookies and enjoy the company of your neighbours.  For more information call 250 656-2241.
