Mt Paul – REPRESENTATIVE NEEDED
Mount Paul is in need of a representative for the virtual Pacific Mountain Regional gathering to be held in mid June. Our long-time representative, Linda L, is moving, and we need to replace her. Regional gatherings are held annually, and this year’s event will be online. Please contact David, Kathy A, or Don L if you are interested in participating in the wider United Church. We will ensure you are registered for this event.
Mt Paul – BOTTLE RETURN
The bottle and can return bin in the church building has generated a small amount of income to help offset expenses over the years. Covid has made it impossible to drop off your bottles so we will come and pick them up or you can drop them off in the church parking lot on Friday May 28 between 1 and 3. Someone will be available to receive them – no contact. Or we can pick them up at your residence on Friday the 28th. Please contact the church office at 250-376-2261 and leave a message, or email Margaret at [email protected]. to arrange a pickup, leave them on the front step and someone will pick them up. If you have any questions, please contact Kathy A or Don L.
