Update from the Chair

Worship Services at D.U.C.

October 10 “Thanksgiving” – Anne Hepburn – soloist Christena-Lynn Erglis

October 17 – World Food Sunday – Christena-Lynn Erglis

October 24 – Lisa Norman

October 31 – no leader – Service MAY BE CANCELLED

Thank you to CL who stepped up to offer leadership on October 17 for World Food Sunday! October 31 is still open at this time. Sadly, this may mean a cancellation of the service. Please watch for further information.

I believe we have rounded the learning curve on our Power Point and sound board usage. Remember, working in the back corner assures you a seat in the sanctuary 😉!!

We will be using YouTube videos for music but we welcome soloists for music features. If you have a musical talent, we would be blessed by your sharing. Please check over your music and your calendars. Let’s get those dates filled!

JUST ONE MORE!

We now have Carolle and John on the stewardship team. At least three people should form this team. Please contact Carol for more information.

Mission and Service: Dignity Is on the Table

Many of us don’t have to stand in line for every single meal with a tray in hand. That’s why special dinners like Café Cinq-Zero-Sept, hosted by Ottawa-based Mission & Service partner Centre 507, are so important.

Toronto United Church Council’s annual Heart & Vision Awards Concert recognizes individuals whose work advances social justice. In 2021, the awards will be presented to Ekua Asabea Blair and Lawrence Hill who, through their community and literary work, address the roots and contemporary reality of systemic racism in Canada, and offer us all an alternative vision of love and hope. Please join us for a free online celebration at 7 pm on Monday, October 18 featuring the music of Jackie Richardson, Billy Newton-Davis and Julie Michels. Featuring a special appearance by Poet Laureate George Elliot Clarke. Register at https://heartandvision2021.eventbrite.ca to receive the event link.
