Notices & Announcements


80th Birthday

One of our congregation members is having an 80th birthday next week. If you would like to send a card, or an email greeting, please email Lois for the information at lois.leroux@sympatico.ca.

Church Opening:  As you have heard, the Provincial Government is allowing churches to reopen, with conditions in place.  Some churches have proceeded to open, but most have not.  Our National Church and our Regional Council are advising that we wait until September, and then, only if we have all safety measures in place.

At our recent Council meeting, we agreed with this advice and are not planning to open our church for Sunday morning services until September.

We have a COVID Response Team in place who will be advising us about the procedures that must be in place, including cleaning, seating, singing and personal protection.


Our priority remains the safety of our congregation, and coming together now, even with measures in place is simply too risky.


A joint online virtual service is being planned for Labour Day Sunday, September 6th, with several area United Church ministers, including Rev. Wendy participating.

If it is determined that we can safely and reasonably resume worship in the sanctuary, we will do so as early as possible after that.

Please take good care of yourselves; keep in touch with each other; and be safe.

Summer Worship: Virtual services will continue through July, with the last being on July 26th.
There will be no services from August 2nd through the 30th.
September 6th will be a joint virtual service.
Services may resume in the sanctuary on September 13th.


Bible Study/Prayer workshop:  Wednesday, July 15 will be the last one for the summer.


Secret Pals:   Ladies please remember your Secret Pal during Covid-19 until we can get together again. Blessings Barb


Bees’ Boutique:  Message from Bee's Boutique - wishing you and your family a safe and healthy summer. When the boutique reopens there will be many new/nearly new items, books and home sewn articles (lap quilts, baby quilts, seasonal banners and table toppers, etc). All for you to admire and purchase!!  Take care everyone. 

Brockville & Area Food Bank:  We received a thankyou card – “To the Members of Lyn United Church.  Thank you so very much for your ongoing support and generosity.  Many local families appreciate your kindness.  Sincerely, Brockville & Area Food Bank.”
