The Orchard Valley United Church Men’s Group consists of 15-20 men. They meet at The Irving Big Stop at 7:45 am, the first Sunday of the month for Breakfast and Fellowship. They discuss upcoming church events and ways they can assist with those events. They conduct two fund raising projects : The FundScrip program and The Guys’ Cans program. They also help out with any maintenance and repair jobs or projects at the Church. They encourage and invite all men who are interested to come out and join in this time of fellowship. For further information, contact Chris Seymour at 902-678-8865 or seymourchris2@gmail.com.

FUNDSCRIP

Fundscrip is a program where you buy gift cards at face value but because you do it through the Men’s Group they earn money and you receive a tax receipt at the end of the year. To obtain more details on how the program works see one of the men at the back of the sanctuary or click the following link:  FundScrip. To download an order form, click one of the following links:

Proceeds from their two main fundraisers, Fundscrip and The Guys’ Cans, are used to support the general operations of the Church, special projects within the church from time to time, and for the maintenance and upkeep of four cabins at Sherbrooke Lake United Church Camp.
