Easter Chocolate GOOD News!

On behalf of Elgin United Church, we would like to say “Hats off to Cindy Carbino and her Sales Team”. She ordered 820 Village Treats Easter Eggs before the COVID-19 pandemic started and has, even under the circumstances, sold all of about 40 eggs, clearing $1,426 for the Ministry of God through Elgin United Church.
We are grateful to all who organized, prepared, sold and all who purchased.
The church buildings might be closed but the work of the Church has been deployed in the world. So we are grateful for your partnership with us and helping us continue to make a difference.
You may partner with us as you are able through our website:

Or you may mail us a cheque through Canada Post.
