SASKATOON—Once a month, volunteers from Mount Royal Mennonite Church spend the day baking 500 muffins. It’s part of an ongoing relationship between the church and Westmount Community School, a kindergarten to Grade 8 school, located a kilometre away. “Westmount is a community school, so they have some students who need a bit of extra support,” said Claire Ewert Fisher, one of the pastors at the church. “The school has a free, daily snack that is made available to all 250 of their students, to ensure they’re at their best in the classroom.” Anne McLellan, the school’s community support worker, reached out to see if the church could help with baking the muffins. The Spiritual Care Team took on the project. “It’s another way that we can love our neighbours and our neighbourhood,” said Ewert Fisher.
