Leadership "Cubed"
View this email in your browser
For the week of Sunday, November 18, 2018

"Lead a life worthy of the calling, to which you have been called..." 

This Sunday, we celebrate worship and song with all ages and stages, together, led by Zach Burrill (Youth Minister) and the youth group!

Last weekend, some youth and young adult members of our congregation, took part in the "Evolve" conference, hosted by the wider United Church.

This Sunday in worship, the focus will be "leadership", through exploring the story of King Saul in 1 Samuel chapters 9 and 10.  Together, we will explore Leadership "Cubed" - youth leading congregational leaders (Rev. Michelle, Rev. Susanne, and Barrie Bolton, lay worship leader), in conversation about leadership of the people of God.

Youth will also lead us in prayer, as well as share some of their favourite songs from their weekend away at Evolve.

There is sure to be great food for thought, some laughter, some heart-felt sharing and prayer, spirited singing, and the companionship of others on the Way of Love. 

See you in church!

 ~ Rev. Michelle and Zach
