230,000 dead in a country of 10 million. This is what happened in Haiti in 2010 when a terrible earthquake struck. Kent Annan was working for a Christian NGO in Haiti, raising a family and building spiritual community and support there. The earthquake tore through the country, affected everyone he knew and tore through his faith in God. This book is about his search for honest faith and a new kind of faith after his existing faith was shaken to the core and reduced to rubble. Working through the Psalms, sharing stories of incredible faith and offering beautiful poetic reflections from places of deep grief and darkness, Annan begins to find more honest and hopeful glimmers of faith and light. This book is rich spiritual treasure toward building up faith in this season of Covid-19.


The book is available through Amazon and other online sellers. It's less than $10, a beautiful, simple, yet profound read. We will be joining together via zoom on three Wednesday evenings – June 3, 10, 17, 7pm, to discuss the book, share insights and favourite passages. Please contact Dr. Harris if you'd like to be part of this discussion group or have any questions.


 Session 1 Chapters 1-3: Wednesday, June 3, 7 - 8pm
Session 2 Chapters 4-7: Wednesday, June 10, 7 - 8pm
Session 3 Chapters 8-10: Wednesday, June 17, 7 - 8pm

This Friday Rev. Rebecca will lead our final MP Kids of the 2019-2020 season! If your kids are able to connect through a device like a laptop, computer, or phone, then it would be great to gather with them on Friday night through Zoom. 


Rebecca will lead everyone in a short check-in to see what they've been up to over the past month since we last met. We'll play some zoom-friendly games, then we'll talk about our ongoing task of doing missions. Finally, Rebecca will present a mission that we will complete together. Our mission this month will focus on spreading positive messages in creative ways. 


Our time together will be around 40 minutes long, and we hope it will be a wonderful time to reconnect and focus on a small mission that can be done from the safety of our homes. 


If your child(ren) are able to participate in online MP Kids this Friday, please email Rebecca (rebecca@armourheights.org) to let her know they will be attending. A reminder email will go out on Friday with the link to join the meeting, as well as an overview of the mission and a few supplies that your kids will need.

 On Friday June 5 at 6:00pm we will launch our very own Armour Heights Garden Gallery followed by a 7:00pm ZOOM Garden Party (dressing up encouraged)! Similar to the Talent Sharing Event, this will be an opportunity for folks to take us on a garden tour, share pictures, music, videos, art, baking, fashion, it could be ANYTHING that is inspired by the garden! Please email Erin Stone your garden inspired content by Thursday June 4th at 10:00pm. We will be sure to provide more details as we get closer to the event. Let's all add some "Spring" in our step and grow some fresh hope together in this season of Covid-19!

Armour Heights Garden Party: Friday, June 5

 For a long time, Armour Heights Church has been a supporter of the North York Harvest Food Bank; we do this by spreading awareness of the food bank, as well as through food donations that we collect at church.

 

During these days of Covid-19, there are still families and individuals in our area that are in need of food from the food bank. As an essential service, Harvest Food Bank remains open and continues to be in need of food and monetary donations. 


Even during these days of self-isolation, we can continue to support the Harvest Food Bank. Here's how you can help:

Drop off food items outside the office door of Armour Heights Church. One of the members of the ministry team will ensure those items are collected each day and added to our food bank box. Once the box is full, we'll make sure all that food is collected by Harvest Food Bank. Some of the most needed items are canned tomatoes, canned beans, canned fish, rice, and household size oil. 

If getting out and either purchasing or dropping off food is not safe for you to do at this time but you would still like to help, you can donate money to the Harvest Food Bank, as well. Click here to donate. 


Thank you for your continued support of this important ministry within our church neighbourhood! This outreach will make a big difference in the lives of many.

 Armour Heights has supported Evangel Hall Mission (ehm) for many years in a variety of ways. We had plans to cook meals for ehm later in April, but that event will have to be cancelled. 


However, that doesn't mean we cannot continue to support ehm in other ways! Right now, ehm is doing what it can to provide a safe space for its residents as well as community supports during this health care crisis, but they could use our assistance.

Want to help ehm during this crisis? Here are some options:


  • Volunteer in a telephone ministry to provide safe, encouraging, social contact
  • Create messages of hope or draw pictures 
  • Mail $10-$20 Loblaws gift cards, including Attention: Cards of Hope in the address 
  • Pray for the protection and health of participants and residents. And for wisdom as the senior management team makes decisions through this difficult time.


EHM has also launched a new "Take-Out"Lunch program. To learn more, CLICK HERE.


The address for ehm is 552 Adelaide Street West, Toronto, Ontario, M5V 3W8

Contact ehm at cindy.han@evangelhall.ca for more information.
