The Congregational Care and Outreach Team (CCOT) supports members of the congregation through a variety of ways; these activities include ‘Welcome Associates’ and ‘Greeters’ on Sunday mornings, special luncheons for newcomers and those who are over 85 years of age, social events for the church family and a church photo directory at 5 year intervals. CCOT also supports initiatives within our community, including ‘Circle of Friends’ for isolated Seniors, St. Luke’s Community Lunch and Wellington Square’s Friday Night Community Supper for those in need in our community. Our ‘Tree of Hope’ campaign that supports those with mental health challenges. Furthermore, CCOT organizes an annual fundraiser to support the mission work of Canadian Baptist Ministries. A recent initiative was our “Grow Hope” campaign. It raised money in association with “Canadian Foodgrains Bank, a Christian Response to Hunger” to provide food aid, relief and development worldwide. Thankfully, we were able to far exceed our goal!
