Peng and Graham will be there to help everyone enjoy the experience. Newcomers get their first 2 sessions free. Fees are by donation with $8 as the suggested amount.
Young Adult Group: Our young adults have been meeting once a week since last spring. We have been writing “love letters”, positive and encouraging messages and quotes, and distributing them downtown for random strangers to find. We have received some positive feedback from those who found them. We also celebrated September 24th as Youth and Young Adults Ministry Sunday, and our children, youth, and young adults led the worship service. We are planning more activities for the upcoming church year, so stay tuned…
Bottle Depot – If you wish to donate your deposit on bottles, cans, etc. to the church, take them to the Reycling Centre on Warren Ave. and ask them to put your refund on the United Church account. Thank you for your donation.
Volunteers are needed to bake cookies or a loaf for Sunday coffee after church. Please label and put in the freezer upstairs. Thank you.
