Sunday Worship, May 8th

Mother as Shephard


What’s the first image that comes to mind when you hear or

read the word “shepherd”? I have a feeling that, at least for

most people, it’s not a picture of your mom.

Please wear a mask


With the increase in COVID cases in the province we have decided that everyone entering Norval United Church is required to wear a mask. This simple act will help keep everyone safe, especially those who are immunocompromised and those who are vulnerable to this virus.

Thank you for showing you care for others by wearing a mask.

Can you help?


We are pleased to be a part of Georgetown Friends Of Refugees 3. Two families have been identified and are hiding in Pakistan. They have been accepted into the Canadian government's Operation Afghan Safety program which should expedite their immigration.


It is money that is needed now. The team needs to raise $67,000 to be able to submit the application. We suggest you give via e-transfer or a cheque directly to Norval United since these donations are processed without fees. We'll forward donations to GFORCe3. Click here for ways to donated.


Help us make a different in these lives. Contact Elizabeth Ivany for more info.

I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; speak up on their behalf and give thanks for them.


1 Timothy 2:1

Here are some recent prayer requests

Elaine van Doorn has asked for continued prayers for her friend, Trish, who faces a long recovery from back surgery.


We pray for Glenn Laidlaw as she recovers in the hospital after a fall. 


We pray with the van Doorn family for Dave who had a birthday recently. 

Our community is sending out prayers for Heather Fraser, Linda McFadden and family after the death of Earl McFadden in Perth, ON. Earl is Heather's father and Linda's husband.


We continue to pray that there will be peace in Ukraine and throughout the world.
