DORCHESTER UNITED CHURCH NEWSLETTER

SEPTEMBER 2016

We hope that everyone has had a safe, restful and relaxing summer, and we look forward to seeing everyone again as we begin our fall services! There have been and continue to be so many projects and events going on at the church, and we wanted to let you know about what's coming up in the next few months. We have enjoyed having so many people out and guests from Reynolds Creek during our August services, and want to keep this positive momentum going as we explore new ways to worship God and to live out our lives as faithful Christian servants. Please read the list of upcoming events below - we hope to have especially good turn-outs for Sept 9, 11, and Oct 9 & 23!

Rev. Larry

FROM MARY KAISER, BOARD CHAIR

On behalf of the Board of Dorchester United Church it is my pleasure to WELCOME, you, THE CONGREGATION BACK TO CHURCH. Over the summer the Property Committee has supervised and worked hard on completing the new eves troughs on the East side, the front steps and the gardens with

a little help from Carol. These people have worked hard to beautify the church so please have a look around. The steps and the cushions will be dedicated on September 25th. We are very appreciative to those who have made contributions to these projects. There will be many exciting church activities this fall. You will find them all within the newsletter. The Choir will be back thrilling us with their usual musical ability through the fall with the help of Kathleen. We have missed them over the summer months.

As we move forward remember to introduce yourself to those you do not know within the church, shake hands and say hello to those who have been absent over the summer and thank God for our faithful choir and especially our loving and caring minister, Larry whose leadership we could not be without.

UPDATES

Eavestroughing - Replacement of the eavestroughing on the east side of the church has been completed. Thank you for the contribution for this project. Thank you to the Property Committee for looking after this.
