Sunday January 8th

Each year on this Sunday we are reminded of the story of Jesus emerging from the waters of baptism and hearing the truth of his identity: Beloved. Child of God. The same can be said of each one of us. We are beloved. We are children of God. 

Hear that reminder. Let it wash over you. You are beloved.

 Watch Sunday's Service Online, Live @ 9:00 AM EDT


 Join us for In-Person Worship @ 10:00 AM

Join us in live, online worship this Sunday at 9:00 am. 

You can find the service on Facebook Live or on our YouTube channel.

The service will be saved at both locations through the week.


Congregational Meeting

Sunday January 22nd, 2023

Norval United Church is searching for a new Minister. The search team has completed training with the Regional Council and has been planning the process of searching for a new minister. Our position description and faith profile have been uploaded to Church Hub and are visible to eligible applicants.

The search team will be holding a hybrid virtual and in person meeting after church at 11:15AM to outline the search process and to hear from adherents and members.

If you have any questions or thoughts to share you can email the search team or speak to anyone on the team. Search Team members include Cheryl Mees, Jennine Ditz, Ashleen Finbow, Art Ditschun, Neil Barrows, Peter Yee, and John Eastwood.

Phase 2 Progress!

If you haven't see it yet, here is a picture of the sign posted on our property by the town regarding our phase 2 development. We still have a long way to go, but it is exciting to see progress.

A big thank you goes out to our trustees for all the hard work they have done and are doing to get this project going.

Friday January 20th @ 6:30PM

Free Family Movie Night!

This month: Stuart Little. For anyone who has ever felt that maybe they didn't fit in!

Blankets, stuffies and friends are all welcome! Free popcorn.

Can You Help?

We have signed a contract with Guelph Solar to install solar panels on the church.  Solar energy is better for the environment and it is better for the church bank account. It is estimated we will save up to $10,000 a year in hydro costs.  The panels will cost more than $100,000 for purchase and installation.  Are you able to help with a special donation for this project? Thank you for helping us to care for the environment and reduce our future hydro costs!

Tuesday January 10th @ 1PM

Join us in the sanctuary from 1PM-3PM

We will explore self-compassion based on the research of Dr. Kristin Neff. The three main elements of self-compassion are: mindfulness, common humanity and kindness. We will view Dr. Kristin Neff’s TED talk entitled, The Space Between Self-Esteem and Self-Compassion and be provided with an opportunity to discuss

the material presented.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Have You Heard?

Knox Presbyterian Church in downtown Georgetown has started an Out of the Cold program to help folks find shelter during the coldest time of the year.

They are looking for volunteers to help in various capacities including an evening team (7-9PM) to make supper and prepare for the night, an overnight team (9PM-6AM) and a morning team (6-8AM) to make breakfast and clean up. Connect with them here if you have any questions or would like to volunteer.

Out of the Cold 

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

Gayle Robinson asks for continued prayers for Patti Moss and Dean McLeod.

Fay Baxter offers prayers of thanksgiving for her mom coming out of hospital and her son and daughter-in-law expecting twins.

Cindy Phillips prays for renewed energy, strength and peace in 2023.

Lyn Brennan asks for prayer for her sister-in-law, Connie, dealing with anemia and auto-immune issues.

Sharon Abel is praying for her mother-in-law, Josie, who is dealing with physical limitations.

Bob Land had 7 friends pass away last year and encouraged us to remember all who are grieving.
