Please note that these ideas can be done on the platform in the church building or pre-recorded and sent in to our production team depending on which you choose.

As the Respond Ottawa C-19 Taskforce has been scanning for COVID-19 related needs around our city, they’ve determined that PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) is still one of the highest demands. As our city begins to open up, a number of frontline ministries and organizations will start operating again. Many of these groups will need PPE supplies. So, they are calling on the church of the city to respond to this request. You may buy a lawn sign, or donate money for gloves or hand sanitizer that will be delivered to these frontline ministries and organizations. Go to https://frontlineottawa.com/ to donate today. 

As well Respond Ottawa has a link to FAMSAC which is an organization that our church supports. They are looking for donations and if you shop at the Metro on Greenbank or in Bells Corners they have places that food may be dropped. At this time they are in need of apple sauce snacks, canned chicken, canned corn, pasta sauce, peanut butter and cooking oil. As well donations may be made online at http://www.famsac.ca/donate
