Sunday Worship Link
See Minister's Message and link to bulletin. We are still trying new and better ways to provide our worship experience. Thanks for your patience and support.
As of Sunday, June 13, you may worship with us in person on Sunday mornings (observing current COVID protocols)! Services are at 9:00 a.m. at Mewassin and 10:30 a.m. at Stony Plain. The Stony Plain service will continue to be available on Zoom or by phone.
We would like to remind our Zoom attendees to please mute your microphones during the service so as to reduce background noise (you are, of course, free to un-mute your microphone if you are reading or leading a prayer, or asking/answering a question). If you cannot mute your microphone, than we ask that you please be very quiet during the service. We also ask that, when conversing, you speak slowly and try to avoid talking over anyone else.
- MEWASSIN NO IN PERSON WORSHIP: Due to the most recent Government COVID restrictions, there will be no in-person worship at Mewassin until further notice.
- STONY PLAIN AND ZOOM: In person services will continue to be held at Stony Plain United Sunday mornings at 10:30, with restrictions (Compulsory Masking, Physical Distancing, Sanitizing, 1/3 capacity). This service will continue to be offered on Zoom and by telephone.
OCTOBER 24 TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION SUNDAY:
Next Sunday, October 24th will be Truth and Reconciliation Sunday at Stony Plain/Mewassin. As individuals and Communities of Faith, we are called to understand the past relations with Indigenous Peoples in our country, and work to build bridges toward true reconciliation. We will have a guest joining us who will help us discover ways we can implement the ‘Calls to Action’ cited in the Report on Truth and Reconciliation, in ways that are meaningful.
GROUP STUDY: Are you interested in a Zoom group study gathering? Please let Heather know. There are three great studies we will choose from as a group, so the sooner we know numbers the better. None of these require much independent reading so the time commitment is not especially heavy. Day and time to be determined.
SEPTEMBER PHOTO CONTEST RESULTS:
As most of you know, September was the last month of our photo contest. Many thanks to all of you who sent in your pictures. We will certainly make use of them in our power point and occasionally as bulletin covers. A huge Thank-You as well to Jon Blois, who came up with the idea of a photo contest, and funded it. Even though there is no contest running right now, you may still send in your pictures which we will add to our photo library. Here are the winners of September’s contest. Congratulations to all of you!

OCTOBER IS REHOBOTH MEMBERSHIP MONTH!
We invite you to become a Rehoboth member and partner with our ministry of supporting persons with developmental disabilities. Membership fees are $10 each and additional donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. Look for the ‘October is Membership Month’ envelope on the table in the narthex. Alternatively, a digital online submission is available through https://www.rcmflourish.ca/donate/donation-form/ . Thank you for your prayerful consideration.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR KEEP IN TOUCH PROGRAM:
Keep In Touch is an innovative senior callers’ program developed to support seniors' overall well-being. Neighbourlink Parkland connects program participants with volunteers who, through a weekly telephone support system, take the time to talk and listen. This program is more than a phone call; it is confirmation for seniors that someone does care. We need VOLUNTEERS who are willing to make weekly phone calls. We currently have a waitlist of seniors waiting to be matched with a volunteer caller. Volunteers are provided with a training guide, a 1 hour training session and support as needed. Schedules and time commitment are flexible. Volunteers need to be at least 18 years old, complete a Neighbourlink Parkland volunteer application and provide a criminal record check.
Call Neighbourlink’s office at 780-960-9669 for more information and to register!
FLOWERS OF THE BIBLE BANNER BOOKLETS:
Most of you have noticed the 7 banners depicting Flowers of the Bible which have been hanging for several months now. This was a project of the UCW started many years ago and worked on by members too numerous to list. ~ 6 ~ A booklet giving information about the scriptures in which the flowers can be found was recently designed and printed. These booklets can be found on the table in the Narthex, and are free, thanks to a couple of generous donations. Please take one, especially if you were involved in the quilting or researching.
