You can participate and see the other participants if you have a computer with a camera.

With the hope that Sherbrooke Lake Camp will still be able to run this summer, Christian Development is launching this year’s sponsorship drive. Last year we raised $3,767. Thanks again for your generous support! This year we have 20 adults, youth and children asking for sponsorships for a total of $3,810 in fees. To be clear, not all of these people attend Orchard Valley’s worship but they all have been involved in at least one of our programs at some point, especially previous church camp sponsorships. Please consider making a donation to ensure we can continue this ministry! If you mail a cheque or put it in the church’s exterior mail slot, please write on the memo line that it is for camp sponsorships. If you send the church an e-transfer, please mention what it is for when you contact Theresa. If you use the “Donate” button on Orchard Valley’s website, pick “General” for the Fund but type “Camp Sponsorships” in the Message box. Note that any money not used this year for camp sponsorships will be held for next year’s sponsorships.
Greetings, Orchard Valley!
Following is an update from Rev Don. This message was emailed to the congregation on March 16. Please feel free to share this information.
Video Recorded Worship Services – In this time of uncertainty, Rev Don wants to keep our worship family together in spirit, if not in body. Therefore, he will be preparing a series of short worship services, to be shared with our church family.
Please view our video recorded services by hovering over Worship Services on the ribbon above and then clicking on Video Recorded Messages OR by clicking on the following link: Video Recorded Messages.
