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.
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.
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.
