Update: The Easter food drive is now over and we have collected 510 food items in total; PTL!
Thank you to everyone who has supported our Easter food drive this year.
Redeemer's 2017 Easter Food Drive is here!
We are so excited to be kicking off this year's food drive, which runs from now through April 16th.
Our goal this year is to collect 500 cans.
As with previous years, we will be donating these cans to the Agincourt Community Services Association (ACSA). With your help, the ACSA will distribute these cans to those in the local community in need. To learn more about ACSA and their mission, please visit their website at agincourtcommunityservices.com.
WHERE TO DROP OFF YOUR CANS
You can bring cans to the church office on Saturdays.
Please consider giving foods that are healthy and that you would enjoy eating at home.
Here are some suggested giving ideas:

Tracking our Progress
WELCOME TO F.A.S.T. 2017!
In the Christian tradition this season is called Lent which has to do with the season of Spring. This time is one that identifies with Jesus's testing period in the wilderness for forty days and forty nights. It is a time of solemnity and discipline before the Lord. The ways we live before God call for closer examination and discernment of spirits.
... is an acronym meaning Fresh Attitudes Showing Trust. This is our prayer for the weeks ahead. May we all as the church be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Given this period is characterized by fasting, there will be certain things we will do together with an accountability partner. We will prayerfully consider fasting from one thing for 40 days. Coupling this, we will all have weekly items to fast from as listed below. And with this we will aim to fast from one meal a week as a way of devoting our energies to the Lord more fully.
