Announcements for the Week of August 18, 2019
Eleventh Sunday of Pentecost
Rev. Helen Prior will be leading us in Worship on Sunday August 18, 2019.
Thought for the Week: Kindness makes you the most beautiful person in the world, no matter what you look like!
Nelson, St. Stephen and Tansley United Churches strive to be a nut free and scent sensitive environment. Please help us be an inviting space for everyone.
A few people have been asking about offering envelopes.
If you don’t have offering envelopes and would like some, boxes are available on top of the “name tag” filing cabinet in the foyer.
We will be using these surplus “Kids’ Program” envelopes for the remaining months of 2019, but your donations will definitely be going to support our New Church.
Please help yourself to a box, but remember to fill out one of the yellow forms that are with the boxes, and leave it in the mail slot of John Allchin, so that any donations are credited to your number.
Adult envelopes will be issued to all adult envelope donors for 2020. PAR forms are also available (same location), should you prefer a pre-authorized monthly debit from your bank account.
Big things are happening to help you hear our services…Come and speak with us at the A/V booth.
Will be running over the summer on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month at Cora’s on Appleby Line at 7:30 a.m. Next Meeting: Wednesday August 28th.
Food Pantry is in great need of juice boxes, peanut free snacks, tuna for children’s lunches and diapers sizes 3 & 5. Please leave any donations in the box in the Church Lobby. Your support is appreciated.
Food for Life
If you have extra plastic grocery bags, Food for Life would appreciate receiving them for their program. Please leave them in the coat room. Egg Cartons are no longer required. Thank you.

Halton Fresh Food Box
Program volunteer coordinator is still needed.
If you can help a couple of hours a month or for further information please contact the church office.
Supporting Indigenous Peoples….
Indigenous Reads Month
June was Indigenous Reads Month. You can borrow /sign-out books from our library of Indigenous authored books under the Outreach bulletin board. Indigenous literature can be part of our own personal reconciliation journey, by increasing our understanding of Indigenous issues, cultures, and history.
It takes lots of people to put these programs together so if you have even an hour or so to help out, we’d love to hear from you.
