 DEDICATION

As we dedicate this offering, we offer ourselves too,

for these gifts of money are but tokens of ourselves.

Take and use us, that our hands may reach out in service,

our feet may walk the difficult path of reconciliation,

and that our words may be words of peace and thanksgiving.  Amen.

 Our Church News

 COVID PROTOCOLS FOR OUR CHURCH – The Church Council has decided to implement option 2 for our Worship services, which states the following: up to 50% capacity, recording names for contact tracing, 6’ social distancing, no congregational singing, prevent anyone from entering services who are displaying COVID-19 symptoms or who has been instructed to self-isolate, and of course the mandatory wearing of masks in all public buildings. Please note, as mandated by the government of N.B., persons involved in all other activities taking place in the Church/Centre, including Sunday School and Bible Study, must show proof of full vaccination.

FALL BIBLE STUDY – Due to new Covid protocols, the Fall Bible study will take place on Zoom, Tuesday evenings at 7 PM. The link for the study will be placed on the church Facebook page.

 SUNDAY SCHOOL – Sunday School classes have once again been put on hold due to the new Covid regulations.

ROAST BEEF FALL SUPPER TAKE OUT – Our Annual Roast Beef Fall Supper will be held on Saturday, October 30th from       3:30 – 5:30 PM. The menu is roast beef, potatoes, gravy, vegetables, roll and dessert. This will be take-out only, with pick up at the front doors. Tickets are $15 for adult and $7 children 11 & under and will be pre-sold at the Church Centre, Dickison’s Pharmasave and Brookdale Flower Shop. This is a major fundraiser for the church; team members will be making phone calls requesting donations to help keep costs minimal.

MEMBERSHIP PHONE CALLS – The Church Council is in the process of making phone calls to members of the congregation within the next few weeks. The goal of this initiative is to check in with our members to let them know that we care and gauge any needs they may have. Our hope is that we will be able to reach all members of the congregation.
