and therefore enough for God?​

Finding a Trail and a Song

Just published! A series of 18 poems exploring the connection of nature across the generations. Only ten available, from Rev. Wendy or the office at 10 dollars a copy. Donation to the General Fund as a gift from Rev. Wendy as “stewardship seeds.”

                 

Social Media Guidelines:  We have adopted a Social Media Policy for Christ United Church.             A copy has been placed on the bulletin board.

In November we will be remembering our ancestors as part of All Saints/All Souls Day, which is the spiritual element of Halloween, and Remembrance Day, when we remember our veterans.

Rev. Wendy would like to hear stories from you, that you might share. If you are willing to share them in worship that would be great! If you would like to tell Rev. Wendy in a visit, she will write them down and we can read them.

Please send jpeg photos to Lois with a copy to Rev. Wendy. We will show them on the screen on the first Sunday of November. On our Remembrance Day Sunday we will share stories.
