Last Sunday, the mother's of our congregation were treated to a scrumptious breakfast here at Church on the Hill in honor of Mother's Day. We'd been told it would be provided by the men. It was a delightful surprise then to find not only men, but the youth and Sunday School helping out as well.

A big thank you going out to Peter Brown and his girls, Joelle and Ireland, as well as Kate Wolstenholme who were the yummy cooking crew. And thanks as well to Doug Pelletier and Pastor Lorne Bonk for helping out wherever needed. And they even cleaned up.
I tell you honestly, your serving spirit is appreciated.
When breakfast was over, the church enjoyed a couple specials for this Mother's Day occasion. The following videos are also available on the Church on the Hill YouTube channel.
First was Brooklin Deilschneider with the blessing of a poem and scripture reading.
Then Noah Glover blessed us by playing As The Deer first alone, and then - for the first time - as an accompaniment to the congregation. I think one of the hardest things is to have the courage to play an instrument in public, and shortly on the heels of that is to play it well as others sing along.
Thank you Brooklin and Noah, and again to everyone else who made this day special.
