A Special thanks to Gary MacDonald for his warm and inspiring words this summer morning!

SUMMER SERVICE AT ANDERSON SETTLEMENT:  There will be a service at Anderson Settlement United led by Kyle Wells on Sunday, August 20 at 2pm.  All are welcome!

BOOK, BAKE, AND JEWELLERY SALE:  Coming up on September 9 from 8am-12pm!  This time round we’ve added a jewellery sale to the event. I expect, like me, you have items of jewellery stored away in drawers and boxes which are pining to see the light of day. This sale is their big chance to be ‘new’ again. Please gather them up and bring them to the church on one of the next two Sundays, Aug. 20 or 27th, or even Sept. 3rd if you move slowly! I will be collecting the pieces and manning the jewellery table. Also if you have anything like a ‘jewellery tree’ which you could lend for the morning to help display the jewellery, most appreciated. (Susan Dales)

FOOD BANK SUNDAY: Sunday, August 20 is Food Bank Sunday for the month.  We are invited to bring our offerings of non-perishable food items or consider a monetary contribution to the food bank to help meet the immediate needs of our neighbours and friends, even as we continue to address the underlying injustices that lead to long-term food insecurity.  Of particular need this month are cereal, juice, peanut butter, jam, and any sort of canned goods.

DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY: Friday afternoons 2-4pm during the summer, we explore together what Happiness really means. More information on the Open Sky Facebook Page.

GETTING IN TOUCH WITH REV.  LLOYD:  Looking to get in touch with Lloyd?  He can be reached at or by calling (506) 940-1151.

BEER AND HYMNS:  This month’s theme is “Pastoral Charge Favourites”.  Ducky’s Pub from 7-8pm on Sunday evenings:  next on August 27.  Come out and raise your voices (and glasses!).

LOOKING AHEAD:  On October 8, Margaret Tusz-King will be leading a service on a theme of food, hunger, and the work of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.  She is looking for volunteers interested in planning and/or participating in the service.
