Just a follow up to the basement; we are waiting for a total of the damage and then we will proceed from there. Until then we are unable to access the basement for any activities, which includes coffee and fellowship after church. Thank you for your patience during this time.
Today at 2:00 p.m., we are caroling at St. Boniface Hospital. We will be meeting at 1:30 p.m. at the church. Caroling will take place in the Atrium.
Is this season challenging? Do you not feel joy this holiday season? Join us for an evening of respite in the midst of the chaos and confusion that is often associated with the Christmas Season. The Blue Christmas / Longest Night Service will be held at Windsor Park United Church on Monday, December 23, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. This is a quiet service of music and meditation. Light refreshments will follow.
If you would like to attend the Blue Christmas Service (Monday, December 23 at 7:00 p.m.) or the Christmas Eve Service (Tuesday, December 24 at 7:30 p.m.) or both and need a ride, there are sign-up sheets in the narthex.
During the month of December, our Mitten Tree will be on display at the back of the sanctuary. Needed items include mittens, gloves, scarves, neck-warmers, socks and ear muffs. Please place the items on or under the tree to help us decorate it. In early January, all donated items will be collected and delivered to Rossbrook House for distribution to children who access that facility.
Don’t forget that for a donation to appear on your 2019 tax receipt it needs to be received by the Church by December 31st.
The Offering Envelopes for 2020 are at the back of the sanctuary. If you cannot find yours or you wish to use offering envelopes please contact the office. If you would like to go on PAR, please contact the office.
