Life & Ministry of Mt Paul United Church
Week of October 23, 2022 – October 30, 2022
Here at Mt Paul
The worship service on Sunday October 23, 2022 will be live from Plura Hills, and streamed on Zoom too. This week Rev. Emily Cooke will be leading our service. Mt Paul will project the service on the screen at Mt Paul. We will have the sanctuary open every Sunday to have either the minister leading the service in person, or we will project the service from Plura Hills on the alternate weeks. The service will begin at 10 am each and every week.
DID YOU KNOW
DID YOU KNOW that your voice is needed to be heard at the Congregational meeting on October 30. We need your input into how best our congregation can see its way into the future. The meeting will be in person and also on Zoom, using the same link as for the 10 AM Worship Service.
I regret to inform all of you of the passing of Joe Dowkes. He passed away last week. Joe was a member of Mount Paul UC, and our condolences are with his family at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. There will not be a service for Joe.
Socktober 2022 will run Oct 1 – Nov 15. We will collect warm clothing such as hats, mitts, scarves, toques, blankets, long johns, undershirts, and toiletries etc. (New or Gently Used ADULT). People can bring stuff to the church on Sundays. After Nov 15, Kathleen will arrange for them to be delivered to either Mustard Seed or Ask Wellness
Mt Paul – CONGREGATIONAL MEETING
We will be having a congregational meeting after Mount Paul’s church service on October 30th.We will be hosted by Kathy Davies, our regional minister.
The purpose of this meeting is to discuss and explore the future of Mount Paul as a viable church. As you all know, we have a limited amount of funds to carry on and we are only getting a few regulars attending church services so this discussion needs to be had. PLEASE attend on October 30th – hopefully in person but at least by Zoom with your questions and or suggestions.
We will be having a simple potluck lunch of sandwich .
