Life's Too Short....To Fear The Unknown
There's a lot to fear in life, no question about that. They say there are 400 phobias to worry about and so many of them are connected to unknown situations or circumstances. What's the answer to fear of the unknown? We'll be talking about it on Sunday.
During our online service we will be sharing in Communion together. Bring your own elements!

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

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.

We'll share in communion online this Sunday. Have elements ready.

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

Email Jenny Morrison if you would like to join our volunteer team and

help us provide a safe and warm welcome to all who gather.

Pro tip: Arrive before 9:50 am to enjoy a warm beverage and cookie at your seat!

See you September 14th

We will be taking a break from our weekly Mid Week Breath for the month of August. You can look out for weekly resources to help you take time on your own to reflect.   

Mid Week Breath will resume on Wednesday September 14th at 8PM.

We are blessed at Norval United with many dedicated volunteers and staff. Some of the people you know and see often and others work behind the scenes. 

Over the next few months we will be highlighting some of the folks at NUC. 

Keep a look out each week to meet someone new!

This week, we introduce you to....

Brandon Grove

Assistant Building Custodian

We asked Brandon some questions so you can get to know him and his role at Norval United.

What is one word that describes you?


What are you reading or watching or listening to these days?

I love watching police shows, like NCIS and Blue Bloods.

What is something that people might not know about you?

I love belonging to the swimming and Track Clubs in Georgetown and run everyday: rain, snow and sunshine weather!

What is your role at NUC?

I am working with the Norval Church Summer Camp, making sure areas are clean and tidy.

What is your favourite thing about the NUC community?

I really enjoy being there because I like to help and learn from others and it is nice to meet the wonderful, fun people.

Join in on Sunday, July 31, at 7:30 p.m. EDT for "Emancipated, But Still Working for Freedom,” ​a​n online panel discussion with members of the Black Clergy Network ​and other leaders on the significance of Emancipation Day and the struggle for equality that continues.

Also, an ​Emancipation Day National Worship Service, with the Black Clergy Network and others, will be shared on the United Church of Canada's YouTube Livestream on Monday, August 1, at 11:00 a.m. EDT.

The United Church of Canada has elected the Rev. Dr. Carmen Lansdowne, Kwisa’lakw, 47, as its 44th Moderator. She will be the church’s spiritual leader for the next three years.

In articulating her vision for The United Church of Canada, the Rev. Dr. Lansdowne speaks of a church committed: “To build new connections and rebuild old ones. To work towards social change that sees a world cared for, and human dignity honoured. To walk together every day in repentance and reconciliation. To march and fight and change unjust systems together. To pray together. To sing together. To discern together.”

Get to know the 44th Moderator by reading her full biography and statement of vision, watching her message on YouTube. 

You are invited to the installation of the new Moderator on Sunday, August 7, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. PDT/ 4:00 p.m. EDT/ 5:30 p.m. NDT. Attend in person, or watch online on YouTube Livestream.

Ways to Serve

We are looking for folks who can help provide treats for Sunday morning's in person service. You can bake, pick up treats from the store, we even love the last minute run to Tim's for Tim Bits.  

We love sharing coffee and treats on Sunday morning before and after the service. If you would like to help provide treats for a Sunday morning, you can email Jenny in the office. You can bring them for a specific week or drop them off at the church to be stored in the freezer.

Sunday Morning Volunteers

Baking not your thing?  Do you like to connect with people?  We need people to serve coffee, tea and treats on Sunday Mornings.  We will teach you everything you need to know to make the job nice and easy. If you would like to help out.  We are thankful for Bruce and Heather who have served up Sunday treats for us for quite a while.  They are hoping to take a break over the summer.  If you can help, contact Jenny in the office.

Other Opportunities to Serve

Here are a few other excellent opportunities:

Kids' Church Leadership (help run an activity with our kids on Sunday) 

Welcome Team (a great way to get to know people)

In-Person AV Team (help run the tech in the Sanctuary)

Food Truck Fridays (help set up and welcome/engage the community)

Consider these or other ways you feel called to participate in the life and work of NUC! Contact Jenny Morrison in the office at 905 877 6122 or by email.

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.
