The Sunflower Project
you join the Sunday School children of High River United Church in
brightening up High River with sunflowers this spring? Recovery in
High River is moving along slowly but surely. There is still a
long road ahead of us and with another spring and its rains coming,
anxiety will be running high. So our Sunday School children and
leaders have decided that we would like to bring a ray of hope to each
household in High River. Inspired by a project undertaken in New
Orleans, we would like to put an envelope of sunflower seeds, with a
note of hope created by our children, into every mailbox in High River.
We have learned that sunflowers are great at pulling toxins out of the
soil (left by the flood waters and all the chemicals that were mixed
in which sat for weeks in parts of town). So we’re inviting
congregations across Canada to send us some packs of sunflower seeds.
We’ll need approximately 4,000 packs of seeds to reach every household.
So, if you’d like to join us in brightening up High River this spring,
we invite you to send 1 pack or 2 or 10 or 20 or more, along with your
blessings and hope to the people of our town. Please send them by April
You can mail your seed packets to:
High River United Church
High River, Alberta T1V 1M6

and Rev. Susan Lukey & Rev. David Robertson

Have you joined St. Paul’s Recyclable program yet?
St. Paul’s has embarked on an easy fund raiser to help with the Church renovations. All you need to do is bag up all your empty bottles, cans and milk jugs and put our church id # 1468-2415 visible on each bag and drop them off at the bottle depot on Resources Road.
If 10 people donate $10.00 worth of recyclables that will put $100.00 into St. Paul’s account! If 100 people donated $10.00 a month that will put $1000 into our account. It’s just that easy! Thank you for your support.
