Relationship Rehab Message Series

This has been a year like nothing we have experienced in our lifetimes. To say that COVID-19 has turned our world up-side-down is an understatement.
Every human being craves close, intimate, personal relationships, but right now we are grappling with quarantine, social distancing, limited social bubbles, coronavirus lockdown restrictions, and fear.
This pandemic is having a major impact on all of our relationships.
But don’t you think it’s high time for us to reboot, restore, or maybe even revolutionize our relationships, to deepen and strengthen every relationship in your life even with all that is happening?
The relationship principles found in the Bible can improve and transform all your relationships into what both you and God desire them to be.
They will help you to know how to better engage with others in the present and in the new normal ahead.
So we invite you to join us for our brand new message series entitled, Relationship Rehab: How to Improve and Transform Your Relationships coming soon @ Church in the Valley.
 

Non-Golf Tournament

The world has certainly changed a lot since last September and none of us has remained unaffected. The COVID-19 virus has caused us all to rearrange, rethink, and readjust almost every aspect of our daily lives.
Think for a moment about how the pandemic has changed your life and your finances. Rising food prices, less work, extra expenses, less availability of all those things we normally just take for granted.

Now think about how all this has affected those who were living on the edge to start with. Devastating is the only way to describe it. Despite all the government programs, the growing needs are nowhere close to being addressed. And more and more hard-working folks are finding themselves dependent on assistance.

AOK has been working all throughout this pandemic with amazing volunteers and new community collaborations to meet the needs of people in our community.
 
Because of our volunteers and community collaboration, we have offered assistance to single moms, seniors, and anyone impacted by the pandemic. We have gifted over 10 vehicles to single moms through our Cars for Mom program, contributed to the Douglas school breakfast program, provided two community food distribution days that served approximately 300 families with access to groceries and clothing needs, we have delivered over 1200 food baskets of groceries and fresh produce to families in need, and we have provided backpacks for children heading back to school.
We are honoured to serve the community through acts of kindness and compassion.

BUT HERE’S WHERE YOU COME IN!
As a result of COVID-19, we had to cancel our 17th Annual Acts of Kindness Charity Golf Tournament. The challenge is that without the funds raised through our golf tournament, AOK will fall short in providing much-needed assistance to our community. So we are launching a “Non-Golf Tournament” Fundraiser to help those in our community who need a hand.
We are asking you, our church family, if you could give AOK your financial support again this year. Your sponsorship or donation will go a long way to help those who are struggling in our community. We know it might be a sacrifice, but folks are depending on us! As we partner together again this year we can make a real difference – and remember 100% of your donation goes directly towards assisting families in need in our community.

Below is a link so that you can make a donation to our AOK Non-Golf Charity Fundraiser and help a struggling family in our community.

AOK Volunteers Needed

Your time, cheer, and presence are precious gifts – and we invite you to partner with AOK to share these gifts with our community! We are looking for a few good men and women to volunteer as organizers, packers, and deliverers. Experience is not required! We will have a volunteers’ orientation on Thursday, October 8 and Thursday, December 17 to share all details.
If you have any questions in the meantime, please email Pastor Anderline at Anderline@actsofkindness.ca
