Tuesday & Wednesdays:  Spiritual Literacy Group.  Using resources from Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat this small group (and another on Wednesday evenings) will explore spiritual attitudes and practices that can contribute to living lives of meaning: attention, gratitude, kindness, play and the list goes on.  On each Tuesday morning and Wednesday evening we will explore the same theme – so, if you can’t make a Tuesday morning come on Wednesday evening or vice versa.

Consider taking part: Tuesdays at 10am or Wednesday at 7pm

COMMON VISION CONCERT:  Coming on November 5 at 3pm, a musical ecumenical event featuring the music of Ron Klusmeier (and others) along with information on the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.  The event will feature a mass choir made up of singers from several Sackville churches, along with congregational singing.

Our Affirming Vision Statement for Sackville United Church

We the community of Sackville United Church feel called to proclaim and live the call of Jesus in our midst.

As people at Sackville United Church, we are committed to being a safe, nurturing environment, affirming and including all – those oppressed, those excluded and those marginalized (e.g. by economic status, dietary limitations, race, culture, language, age, ability, mental health, marital status, gender identity, and sexual orientation).

We will join with all people who seek justice, compassion for all the earth, and, love and peace for all people.
