Summer Snack 'Break'  We are taking a short break from afterworship coffee and treats this summer.  Snacks during fellowship time will resume on Sunday August 19

July-August Outreach: Kanata Food Cupboard School Supplies.
  Purchasing school supplies can be very costly and put financial stress on many families. The Kanata Food Cupboard provides school supplies to families in hopes of easing that burden. The items that are most in need are:  Math Sets, Combination Locks, 1.5-2” binders, Pencil Cases, Safety Scissors, Computer Paper, Scientific Calculators, Lunch Kits, Backpacks, Page Dividers, USB Memory Sticks, White Erasers, White Out/Liquid Paper.  Your help in making back to school a positive experience for all Kanata families is greatly appreciated.  Items can be dropped in the Outreach Bin during July and August.

Summer Office Hours: The office will be open for most of the summer, Tuesday to Thursday as well as most Fridays, each week. As in the past, summer onsite hours will apply – 9:00am – noon (11am on Fridays) so that Ruth can work offsite on very hot afternoons. Emails and phone messages will be checked regularly throughout the day. Afternoon appointments with office staff can be arranged by calling 613-836-4756 or by emailing
