“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”
We hope everyone has visited our web page and read the latest edition of The Happenings. In particular, we draw your attention to the article “Invitation to Serve” on page 4. In addition to being part of Council and the committee structure there are numerous regular or periodic tasks that are part any church culture.

Looking ahead at Summer Services:
The 9:02 service will continue all summer but in the Merigold room with nursery care available. Volunteers needed to prepare coffee and tea before the service in the small kitchen. Please contact Mike Giguere at firstname.lastname@example.org.
July 1 to 29
the 10:30 service at Christ Church will host First United Church Port Credit.
Coffee time after the service will be in the Auditorium.
Please wear your name tags during the summer shared services with First United. Wearing nametags invites conversation and makes fellowship more personal.
August 5 to Sept 2
First United Church will host Christ Church for the 10:o0 service. There will be no 10:30 service at Christ Church. First United Church is located at 151 Lakeshore Road West in Port Credit.
Both 9:02 and 10:30 services will return
effective Sunday September 9.
Sunday September 16, however, will be the Welcome Back Chicken Barbecue following a combined service at 10:00 a.m.
Festival of Faith: Risking Faith, Daring Hope
Something new is rising. The United Church of Canada, an institution as old and venerable as the nation, is going through a sort of metamorphosis. General Council 43, to be held in Oshawa, July 2018 will be a watershed.
Even before the official opening of GC43, the Festival of Faith will commence. This event will bring together musicians, authors, dancers, story tellers and crafts people on Saturday and Sunday, July 21 and 22.

The supporting churches of The Compass take turns hosting a BBQ for Compass clients at churches in Port Credit. We have signed up for Wednesday, September 12th. The BBQ will be at Trinity-St Paul's on Stavebank. Time from set up to clean up is 4:30 -7:00 PM. We need salad makers and servers. Save the date and let Mike Giguere (mgiguere@arrayinc) if you are able to either provide a salad, serve or both. More details will be forthcoming as the event draws near.
