THE INTERFAITH JUSTICE AND PEACE GROUP IS HOSTING THE KAIROS BLANKET EXERCISE
The Interfaith Justice and Peace group invites you to join us on
Sunday, October 14th for lunch followed by the KAIROS Blanket Exercise workshop facilitated by a representative from KAIROS. This workshop will begin at 12:15 and including a time for questions and answers should conclude at 2:30. Please see the poster and sign-up sheet at the back of the church for more information and to indicate your intention to attend.
The KAIROS Blanket Exercise is an interactive event that will walk us
“through the history of relationships between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples in Canada. As we learn what went wrong we discover how to move forward together.”
STRIDERS HIKING GROUP
The next hike is planned for
to Spencer Gorge/Webster Falls, Dundas Ontario. From the escarpment brow, noted for its panoramas, to the forested depths of the gorge below, the Spencer Gorge Conservation Area exhibits the physical features which have made the Niagara Escarpment one of Ontario's most spectacular geological formations.This significant natural area contains two beautiful waterfalls: Webster and Tew Falls. Both offer spectacular vistas of the gorge.
More details on car pooling, timing will be available as these dates approach.
Women for Women

OPEN DOOR DINNER
As part of the Open Door Program, EMUC will be hosting a dinner at Square One on
Thursday, October 25th. There will be a sign-up sheet posted at the back of the church or you may
call Lorraine Moore, 905-821-1741 for more information.
How to help: Prepare a casserole (e.g. Shepherd’s pie, Mac N’Cheese, Turkey/ Pot Pie, vegetarian dish); slice up some fresh veggies (e.g. carrots, celery, peppers, cucumber) or toss a salad (e.g. green, cole slaw, Caesar, Greek). Bake some cookies or squares. If any one wishes to be creative, some Halloween themed cookies would be great for the kids. If cooking isn’t your forte, we need drinks, buns, paper plates, napkins, cutlery. If you are unable to cook, but want to help, we will need 4 people in addition to me to help at Square One. We will meet at the church at 4:30 that day.
