Come, connect at Kid’s Camp this summer!! We are looking for "Camp Companions" to hang-out and connect with kids during free play this summer. Come once, come twice, come all 28 days! It’s up to you! Come build relationships with our community kids and give the Leaders a lunch break. Check out our sign-up sheet on the Mountainview website for more information and to find available dates.



Mountainview’s Prayer Ministry will be meeting 2 times per month this summer rather than weekly given member schedules. Meeting dates are July 10th & 31st and August 14th & 28th. Please continue to lift up the various needs of our church community and the world around us in your prayers regularly, despite not meeting weekly in person.


CHILDCARE HELP NEEDED: Erin Pankratz, neighbours with Matt & Maria Oliveira, is suffering from debilitating joint pain that’s severely affecting her mobility. Erin and her husband Nick have two children age 2 and 4. Erin is at the point where she requires daily help to care for her children because her mobility is significantly limited. Please pray that the pain in her joints will be released and for her spirits to be lifted, in Jesus' name. They are a Christian family and Erin has attended Mountainview's coffee break program in the past. Additionally, please contact Erin at 905-570-6052 if you know of someone who would be able to provide daytime help with childcare 2-3 days per week throughout the summer starting June 21.
