Posted by on Apr 21, 2016 in Blogging |

Blessed are those who help others in their time of need, so bless pest control markham for taking care of our cockroach infestation.

These kind souls came to us in a desperate time and provided exceptional service at a price we could afford. And they sent those cockroaches to heaven or hell, based on the judgement of our lord. Although according to insect experts, insect heaven is like human hell.

Some may question the extermination of insects, even going as far to say it is a sin. Well, let me remind you of what it says in Genesis 1:26 – Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.

There you have it, for you see there is nothing that can be described as a creeping thing that creeps on the earth more than a cockroach. We do not wish harm on any living thing, but when a creeping thing takes ownership of our holy worship house, we have every right to take control of the situation.

The bug infestation was preventing many of you from visiting our parish and celebrating our lord, and there is nothing more important than this.

Please be assured our place of worship in cleaner and friendlier than ever. We welcome you back to your community to get back in touch with your spirituality.

The month of May is upon us and that means spring is in the air. Just like the seasons, there is no better time to start anew and refresh your soul and devotion to the lord. We hope to see you soon! Our little pests are nowhere to be found.

Building Maintenance and Windows Upgrade Report

Posted by on Mar 30, 2016 in Blogging |

Church window unpgrades and films

As promised, we try to stay as transparent as possible when allocating the funds that are given to us to improve our facility for the people that come and use it. Very important to us that way we share our facility with the community to make us whole in the eyes of Jesus Christ. One big part of this is letting people understand why upgrades are made to the building and how it will benefit us all. This month we had new tile put in through all the bathroom in our building. The previous updates to the flooring had been done in 1965! We figured it was time to make some serious improvements in our building for our students and guests.

Window Upgrades

The windows have been a subject of debate for nearly 5 years for anyone in the know. We were trying to decide whether to use stained-glass windows or two take A more modern approach to setting up our church to be both safe and comfortable. We decided to install thick tempered glass Windows in the ceiling of the church to give us a view into the sky. It was important to us that we get tempered glass as we’ve heard stories of hail causing sunroof to break and potentially cause issues of glass breaking and falling down. We also reduce the glare with window tints. I know some of the ladies in our group will be quite happy as it was getting very hot with the sun blazing in on hot summer days. This issue should no longer exist as we got 3M high-grade window films to protect from UV rays and also the heat that was coming through our sunroof. The new windows were a total cost of $6000 and we used all donation money from the month of April to fund this project. We want to be as transparent as possible and make sure that our building upgrades are explained and the financial element behind them is available for the churchgoers to view and understand. Too many churches do not give a report on what they’re doing to ensure that donations are used in the best way possible to benefit the community, the church, and local charities.

Daycare Upgrades

It has been over 10 years since we added a single new toy to the daycare. This was pointed out by a new bomb that came to our church and was concerned that some of our toys may have led in them! It’s very important that the kids that come here are safe and we definitely dropped the ball by having potentially dangerous toys in the daycare. We went to toys R us and spent $700 on new toys for the facility as well we had local student painters come in and fix up the walls to display some popular Disney movies both on the walls and the windows of the daycare room. We also had window films and stalls on the day care so that you can see into the daycare but they cannot fully to as to not get distracted as to what’s going on inside of the church. I’d like to give a special thanks to the window tinting company for giving us a discount. You can follow their social media accounts and connect with them on Facebook as I highly recommend them.

Entertainment upgrades

On a more personal note, I have upgraded my antenna television System from 19 85. I know it was a running joke around the church that I had my glasses down to my nose and was watching old reruns on a terribly small black-and-white screen. I made the crazy upgrades to a six dollar a month Netflix subscription that will also be used to allow the day care to put on family-friendly shows during hours. We figured this would be a win-win and wouldn’t be an issue. I also have purchased myself a laptop with my own funds so that I can do more things like update our website and our social media accounts.

 

Tips on Selecting the Right Limo Service

Tips for Choosing the right limo service

Hiring limos could be a difficult task. With a lot of options out there, how can a person choose the best limo renting service? Doing some research is the key. Our recent limo ottawa rental proved to be great and we followed this simple formula to pick a great limousine rental service. Below are some of the tips on picking the right limo service for one’s needs:

  1. Event type. Renting limousines is ideal for certain occasions. During events like birthday celebrations or weddings, hiring a limousine will not be perfect without the inclusion of other extras like champagne, red carpet service and themed music. For business professionals, they can hire limousines to pick them up in airports. Even during an ordinary day, people can rent a limousine for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
  2. Reviews and references. Don’t forget to check out review sites such as Angie’s List. One of the best ways to know more about the background of a limo-for-hire company is through feedbacks from previous customers. These customers will usually give non-biased insights and reviews based from their experiences in availing the service.
  3. Years in the business. Customers should not settle for limo-for-hire companies that are relatively new to the business. To avoid issues, only go for limo-for-hire companies that have proven track records over the years. If customers stumble on newer companies offering the same service, make sure to check their staff’s experience first.
  4. Costs. Price is absolutely a factor. Some limo-for-hire companies add fees on top of the amount of renting limos. Customers will be surprised to see that the bill also includes administration costs, fuel surcharges, gratuity fee for the chauffeur and toll fees. All these can increase the total bill amount by up to 30%. So in order to avoid this situation, make sure to discuss all the covered fees first before making an agreement.
  5. Referrals. Don’t hesitate to ask friends, colleagues and relatives if they can suggest a good limo-for-hire company that is known for providing customer satisfaction and a rewarding experience at the same time. Read website forums and do some research if necessary. After all, customers can get the right limo-for-hire company via first-hand referrals and supporting resources.
  6. Safety. Make sure that the limo-for-hire company has valid certifications like business permits, liability insurance and etc. Check if their vehicles are DPU-approved and are also inspected by DPU. Ask the company if the driver is professionally trained and knowledgeable in driving. Also check if the company is doing background checks, alcohol and drug testing, safety training and proper licensing on their drivers.
  7. Have a look at the limo in person first. It is disappointing to ride on hired limos that look unexpectedly old and tired. In order to avoid this kind of situation, make sure to see the vehicle in person first prior to the date of the event.

Why you should rent a Party Bus when travelling

Posted by on Nov 25, 2015 in Blogging |

  1. Limos have long been thought of as a very expensive and extravagant way of travelling. It is something that regular people like you and I only dream of. There are, however some special occasions or important events we need to attend, where renting a limo is not such a bad idea, after all.Toronto Party BuOne thing that people should keep in mind is the fact that sometimes, renting a party bus limo could be a lot cheaper and a lot more convenient than any other means of transportation. One of these occasions is when you find yourself travelling somewhere for the first time. I rented one from company: party bus Toronto VIP when in Toronto and it felt royalty.Imagine this: your plane just landed, you are standing outside the airport, trying to cling to your bags and are soon welcomed by a very smiley and helpful taxi driver. Now, before leaving home you checked google maps for a bit and saw that the airport is not that far away from your hotel. You figure it won’t be more that 10 minutes to get there, even in heavy traffic. Then half an hour later, you are still stuck in that taxi, with the meter still running.I don’t want to suggest that all taxi drivers are hustlers, but some of them are, and sometimes you might involuntarily end up in these unpleasant situations. Now, in order to avoid circling around town for hours in a taxi, you might want to call a limo bus rental service. These people are professionals, they know exactly what they are doing and they know exactly how to please you. You can discuss anything from payment to routes and stops, even before you get there.

    Remember to tell them when you are arriving and where you need to go. I would honestly suggest you to keep in touch with the limousine rental company throughout your trip, especially if you are on a business trip. Being in a foreign city or even in a foreign country can sometimes be overwhelming. Not knowing your way around can really be annoying. So this is one of the main reasons why you should stick to your limo. Besides, you might actually get a better price if you decide to use the company’s services for more than just one day or more than just one trip from the airport to the hotel.

    Now you can focus on other, more important, parts of your trip. You can better plan your meetings or you can visit more places than you initially intended to. You can have fun with your family or friends without getting worried about getting lost in an unknown city. Just remember to keep the number for the limousine rental company so that you can use it the next time you are passing by.
