Friday Message

Rev. Kathi arrives next Tuesday.  We have anxiously awaited our new minister for a year and finally she is here.  It is exciting to think what our future together will be! This is a time for dreaming and the possibilities for what we can do together are wide open. It is a time for learning about each other, building trust and creating relationships. Kathi is very excited about getting to know everyone at EMUC and hearing about your dreams for our faith community.

Kathy leads worship for the first time on Sept. 10th. Communion will also be served.  Come and join the beginning of our journey together!

Upcoming Events

Again this year there is a request for school supplies to be delivered to three schools in Haiti through Children of Hope Haiti.  A revised list has been made as there is a new school being supported.   A box has been placed at the back of the church where the lists can be found.  Please place your donations in the box.

Sunday, September 17th the Striders hiking group will visit the Silver Creek Conservation Area.  The group will congregate in the narthex after the service for a 'brown-bag' lunch and then car pool to the area.  The Silver Creek Conservation Area includes a large Escarpment valley and many representative features of the area's natural splendour.  Wander past babbling brooks, lush forests, and Escarpment rocks as you explore this little taste of wilderness nearby our urban environment. 

As some of you know, we will be sharing in a Murder Mystery fundraising opportunity with Eden United Church, in April. Two performances will take place and we will be team up with Eden to share the workload - and to share the stage.   We hope to have actors from both congregations take part, so if you are interested in taking to the stage, please send contact information to Jon Dobbin (director) at . We are looking for a variety of actors whether you are experienced or have never acted before. If you can memorize lines and are able to move around the stage easily including up and down steps then we would like to hear from you. 
We plan to have an information meeting in September (TBD), and if numbers warrant it, simple auditions will be planned and announced at a later date.
Please direct any inquiries to Joanne Hines.

We are continuing with FUNDSCRIP, an innovative fundraising program that asks you to purchase gift cards in order to pay for regular items you buy every month.  A percentage of the cards we purchase through FUNDSCRIP is donated back to our church.   Order forms for gift cards will be available the last Sunday of every month. The next order date is Sunday, September 24th.   Please see the display board at the back of the church or speak to Joanne Hines if you have any questions about the program.
