|Worship in the Coming Weeks
September 27 - Harry Disher with Kathleen King Martin
October 4 - Harry Disher and Kathleen King Martin
Next Sunday, October 4 is Worldwide Communion Sunday. We will be celebrating the Sacrament of Communion on-line. You will need to have bread or a gluten-free cracker and grape juice or wine on a table nearby when you and those with you are viewing the worship service. You will serve yourself or one another when the time of receiving the elements happens. You may offer to say the words “the body of Christ broken for you”, “the blood of Christ shed for you”. Let me encourage you to consider using a non-North American bread such as pita or naan, or check out a recipe for making bannock (a staple of our First Nations peoples). You could buy the international bread or bake it at home from scratch.
The ways you can join:
You can go to firstunitedchurch.ca for the service, First United Facebook page, or First United Youtube Channel.
If you would be interested in leading a worship service or in participating in some way please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's get together after church this week on Zoom! This is a chance to have friendly "coffee time" with others in our church and check in with one another. The Zoom will start at 11:15 (or so). Thanks to Muriel for hosting us.

Again, we thank you for keeping up your commitment over the summer. Compared to other years we are able to say that it is level with what we normally see. What has made the difference this year and has increased the deficit more than was budgeted, is no fundraising and limited rentals. This has made at least a $10,000 to $15,000 difference to our bottom line and also has started to put us behind in the Resiliency Fund. If you find that you have some extra income because you have not been able to eat out or enjoy socializing with your friends or enjoy those extra shopping sprees this summer, that you would be willing to share with us, we would very much appreciate it.
Here’s hoping the Fall and a new ministry experience will start bringing us back to a more positive place.
Keep well and safe!
