A “No Bazaar” Fundraiser – Cloth Face Masks for Sale
A big thank you from Fran McKeen for your support in purchasing her new improved face masks – she was able to add $504.00 to the UCW 2020 Bazaar Fund.
From the Lambeth United Church UCW – Picture our annual bazaar, if you will, and now try and picture it with social distancing. Hard isn’t it? To protect the usual throngs of people who file through our church on that day, we have made the difficult decision to cancel plans for the 2020 bazaar and hope to be back in 2021 – bigger and better. We’re asking your help to assist us in still making the financial contributions to both the church and donations to various charities for which we would normally use our bazaar profits. Think about the monies you normally spend on baking, crafting and the like plus the money you spend at the bazaar. If 100 LUC members (or families) contribute $100.00 we could have the $10,000.00 we need to maintain our charitable donations. If you would like to be part of this, contact the church office and Judy will direct you on how to make your donation*. As at October 6th our generous donors have contributed $6,067.50 – thank you so much. Remember, too, that these donations come with more than just our thanks – they come with a tax receipt!
*$100.00 too much? We are happy to accept whatever is comfortable for you.
We had been posting a new Sunday Worship service each week at about 10 AM on Sundays. You will find them here on our website and under the Youtube link. With Sunday services resuming as of September 20th, we shall still be video recording the service but the Youtube link will not be available until each Sunday afternoon. The bulletin, so you can follow along and participate, will be still be posted here as a PDF file.
SERVICE – OCTOBER 18th
Minute for Mission –
Our gifts for Mission & Service support theological education in seven theological schools across Canada. Emmanuel College in Toronto is one of them.
There is a certain energy when you enter Emmanuel College that is difficult to pinpoint. The energy could be from the history of students and faculty, many of whose pictures hang in the corridors, or it could be the energy of the current student body, a diverse interfaith group studying for ministry, teaching, or lifelong learning.
Like many United Church theological schools, Emmanuel is a place to explore and challenge long-held beliefs. The process for those who are studying for ministry has many paths to navigate, from interviews with regional councils to internships and meeting all the requirements of their courses. That is where the faculty come in, educators with a special pastoral side that is not found in other university settings. Theological colleges can become places that feel like home, and that is truly where the energy comes from—the feeling of care and respect between students and professors.
What a gift it is to support students and colleges like these! Thank you for your gifts that create a welcoming and caring environment where students can explore and take risks.
If Mission & Service giving is already a regular part of your life, thank you so much! If you have not given, please join me in making Mission & Service giving a regular part of your life of faith. Loving our neighbour is at the heart of our Mission & Service.
