Midweek News – Feb 16


There’s some news to share!


Join us on ZOOM  tomorrow –  Thursday, February 17 at 6:30 p.m. to hear the story of Elijah and how he survived in a drought!





And there is news from the UCW, shared by Cathie Morgan-Matula:


Nineteen members of the United Church Women (UCW) met via Zoom on February 9th, 2022. There was a real feeling of excitement during our time together.

It was clear that we wish to continue as a UCW group.  We hope to “re-set” ourselves via monthly ZOOM gatherings and establish a sense of community before worrying about formal meetings and fundraising.  The first ZOOM gathering for the UCW will be Monday, March 14 at 1:30 p.m.!

We plan to invite members without ZOOM access to join some other member who has ZOOM access for the gatherings.

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the UCW, and we hope to have a tea to celebrate in the fall.  We also hope to have a Service of Remembrance to honour those UCW members who have passed away since the last service was held.

Any ladies of the church who would be interested in joining UCW and participating in this new approach would be most welcome.

And, of course a reminder about our Glenlea Greenhouse Fundraiser:

The Glenlea Greenhouse plant sale fundraiser is already underway and available for online shopping until April 15, 2022.
