wider community. We need a lot of items ... baked goods, gently used
items, new items, gift certificates, handcrafted items, gift baskets, meals,
sports equipment, to name a few and you've got good imaginations ... we
need your support in getting items for our auction. Our successful auction
history shows that just over $2000.00 was raised in 2009, $1257.00 in
2010 and $2195.54 in 2011 so "the sky's the limit" for 2012! Already 39

Wider Church Community:
The adult learning program staff of the Dartmouth Learning Network are
hosting an open house on Wednesday September 5th, 2012 from 11:30 am
– 1:30 pm. The public is invited to attend the open house to meet our
program staff and learn more about adult learning. We are located on the
Second Floor of 260 Wyse Road in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
Tuition in our programs is free for those who do not already have a high
school diploma. We offer flexible day and evening classes, a GED
Program and individual learning programs. If you or someone you know
would benefit from upgrading their education, there will be someone on
hand to help them start the process. Almost one in two Canadian ages 16-
69 has trouble with reading and writing tasks expected in daily life. If you

PSALM 45: 1-2, 6-9
1 My heart is stirring with a noble song; let me
recite what I have fashioned for the king; my
tongue shall be the pen of a skilled writer.
2 You are the fairest of men; grace flows from
your lips, because God has blessed you forever.
6 The peoples are falling at your feet, and the
king’s enemies are losing heart.
7 Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever,
a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of your
kingdom; you love righteousness and hate
8 Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with
the oil of gladness above your fellows.
9 All your garments are fragrant with myrrh,
aloes, and cassia, and the music of strings from
ivory palaces makes you glad.
