Announcements for the Week of April 21, 2019 – Easter Sunday
Rev. Stephen Huntley will be leading us in Worship on Sunday April 21, 2019.
Thought for the Week:
The very first Easter taught us that life never ends and love never dies. Easter is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal and new life.
Tansley United Church strives to be a nut free and scent sensitive environment. Please help us be an inviting space for everyone.

We have a small team so, if you can spare a few hours to pitch in we’d be grateful. You can speak to Jane Jenner after the worship service, or just show up at the parking lot on Kilmer Drive adjacent to the park at 9 am on Tuesday. Please bring you own gloves if possible. Thank you.
