ANNOUNCEMENTS for Sept 11, 2016
17th Sunday after Pentecost
Today we once again welcome the return of Sara Jewell to the pulpit, and thank her for a summer of services filled with insightful words that inspire caring actions.
Fall 2016 Worship and Pastoral Care: The Pastoral Charge Executive would like to announce that we have pulpit supply in place for the fall – though the Christmas season if necessary – provided by Rev. Jennifer Brown, from Petticodiac. This will provide some continuity for our worship while the Search Committee continues to work on our behalf to find new ministerial personnel for the charge. Rev. Nigel Weaver is our supervisory minister appointed by presbytery. Anyone with any questions or concerns can contact Jane Braedley or Marilyn Burrell for more information.
For any pastoral care needs for the rest of the year, please feel free to contact Rev Jean Ward – 902-694-4372 or firstname.lastname@example.org
SUC BOOK AND BAKE SALE COMING UP SOON: Next Saturday, September 17th from 8am-12pm (during Fall Fair) at Sackville United. Anyone who has books to donate can drop them off at the church office during regular office hours or bring them on Sunday. All kinds of books welcome, although textbooks are not preferred.
SUNDAY SCHOOL RESUMES: Sunday School Registration and Re-opening: Sunday School will begin again on THIS Sunday, September 11 (the same day that we move back to our 11:00am church time). Sunday School teachers will be in the Godly Play room with muffins to share starting at 10:00 that morning. All are welcome to drop by before the service to register, reconnect, and ask any questions you might have about Sunday School. We are looking forward to gathering with the community of children! We’re also looking forward to trying a few new things with our 9-12 year olds this year. If anyone is interested in becoming more involved with the Sunday School, we’d love to chat with you.
CENTERING PRAYER: Centering prayer group begins on Monday, September 12 at 9:30 AM; all are welcome to join for one half hour of prayer together.
