Volunteers Needed for Out of the Rain
Out of the Rain is our young adult shelter and First Met has a long history of being involved in this wonderful program in Victoria. We offer a dry safe place to sleep,soup and other foods for up to 30 youth 15-25 years of age on Tuesday nights once a week starting mid October and running through until mid April. We are looking for a few people that feel that they could offer some leadership here: coordinating food volunteers, overseeing the roster of evening and morning volunteers, volunteering a shift once or twice during the winter or making soup. If you are interested in any of these volunteer opportunities please phone or contact Janet Gray at 250-478-5066 for more information. Any offer of help will be warmly welcomed.

Sanctuary Renovation Update: July 8th
Thank you to all the congregants who worked their way around the temporary AV Desk in the Sanctuary beginning on July 5th. We encourage everyone to use the centre doors into the Sanctuary, and not go behind the old desk to ensure safety. The AV Sanctuary Desk reno team got the disconnecting and reconnecting job done in short order. Sound, visuals and live stream were back running for the Sunday Service on July 5. We are ahead of schedule, kudos to all involved. Paul Jenkins will continue the building of the desk through out the summer.
