You are all invited to join us at Holy Trinity Anglican Church this Sunday evening (January 29th) at 7 p.m. for the Ordination as Deacon of Joseph (Joey) Royal. In the Anglican Church this is the first step to becoming a Priest. Desserts and refreshments will follow the service. Joey is currently the Recreation Director at Aven Manor and Aven Cottages.
Coffee break with NUP residents every Thursday at 10am in the 8th floor coffee lounge. Everyone is welcome. Come through Apt. entrance on 54th Street, call *0101 for access.
The new Sunday school session has started up and we will need volunteers beginning today, January 29th.
A little about our program: we are a one room Sunday school with children varying in age from 2 to 10 or 11. Older students go to the Youth group. Our numbers vary from 3 to about 8 per Sunday. The package is very detailed with a main theme/story and lots of ideas each week for games, activities and prayers.
What you’d need to do/commit to: as little or as much as you’d like. Last session we had 4 teachers with varied styles. Some picked a Sunday at a time, some covered a month at a time. Some spent hours preparing their lessons and crafts, some spent a half hour the night before reading over the lesson. We have a room at the church with quite a few supplies and anything extra you’d need to purchase (which I’ve never had to do as I can always find things to use from the room) would be reimbursed.
If you’re interested in signing up or getting more info, please contact me at 669-6353 (home) or by e-mail email@example.com. It would be great if we could get more people involved. Thanks for thinking about it.
Congregational Meeting: The annual financial congregational meeting of Yellowknife United Church will take place following the worship service today. This is when the budget for 2012 will be set and when important decisions about the work of the church in the coming year will be determined. Lunch will be provided.
Affirm Study Group - As of January 2012, there are fifteen congregations, plus St. Stephen's College, in Alberta and Northwest Conference who have made the commitment to become an Affirming Ministry. St, Andrew's United Church in Lacombe is the newest congregation and Southminster Steinhauer United Church in Edmonton is celebrating after their worship service today the 13th anniversary of becoming an affirming ministry. We invite you to check out their church websites for news on what this commitment has meant for their church families.
Kitchen Clean-up: UCW will be cleaning the kitchen at the church on Monday, Feb. 13 starting at 6:30. Any help would be greatly appreciated. You may want to bring a pail, gloves, cleaning solution and cloths. With lots of help, we’ll be done in no time.
