ANNOUNCEMENTS for December 24, 2017-
4th Sunday of Advent

SHARED MINISTRY GATHERING:  There will be a shared ministry gathering at SUC at 6:30pm on January 16 – hope to see you there!

NEW NAMETAGS AT SUC:  As you enter the SUC sanctuary you will notice we have new magnetic nametags.  Please take a moment to choose a marker from the variety of available colours and write your name on a tag.

GOT A FRIDGE TO SPARE?: Sackville United is looking for someone who may have an extra full-size fridge to donate to our kitchenette. This second fridge will be used to help store food for large and catered events, and will only be used from time to time in order to save on energy costs.

CHRISTMAS PAGEANT: Thank you to Fiona and all the participants in this year’s Nativity Pageant!

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

A Blessed Season to You

As Advent comes to a close we receive Jesus, God Among Us at Christmas.  We give thanks for each of you who truly are the face, heart and hands of God among us at Sackville United Church! 

Your presence and talents are noted and accepted with gratitude. As your Executive we are thankful for the support and suggestions you offer.  In this time of giving we appreciate and celebrate all we have and continue to offer one another.

On behalf of the Sackville United Church Executive I wish you the joy and peace of this blessed season; and wish you all a New Year filled with awe and hope.
