ANNOUNCEMENTS for November 12, 2017-
23rd Sunday after Pentecost

CONGREGATIONAL MEETING:  The congregation of Sackville United Church is called to meet regarding our finances and investments on Sunday, November 19 immediately following 11am worship.  A potluck lunch will precede the meeting.  ~Bruce Moore

SUPPORT ROHINGYA REFUGEES: The Canadian Foodgrains Bank writes: “600,000 children, women and men have abandoned their homes and all their belongings, seeking safety in Bangladesh. In response to the need, the Canadian government just announced a special 1:1 match for donations. This is on top of our regular 4:1 match from the government.”  This special matching will last until November 28.   Please visit the Foodgrains Bank website or mark your contribution on your offering envelope as “Rohingya Refugees”.

2018 CHURCH CALENDARS:  Available for $6 each – if you are interested in ordering United Church calendars (a fundraiser for M&S) please fill in your name and desired number on the sign-up sheet on the church office door.

Independent Grocery Tapes
: This fund-raising program will be discontinued by the end of November, therefore, please turn in all of your Independent tapes no later than November 15th There is a basket on the shelf just inside the Sackville United Church entrance for this.  UCW will continue to collect pop tabs, bread tabs, used postage stamps with a 1/4″ border and the front cover of used greeting cards.   Thank you to everyone who supports this program.

BEER AND HYMNS:  Beer and Hymns will be continuing through the fall! Next on Sunday, November 26, and Christmas Carols on December 17!

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

WONDER CAFÉ:  On the last Sunday of each month, our worship will include a time for community conversation with a special guest who will speak with us about their own faith journey.  Coming next on November 26, with special guest Imam Zia Khan.

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
