Poinsettia Pickup, 2020 & Christmas Urns

Poinsettia plant

Dec.5th curbside Poinsettia pick up information
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting Maple Grove this year with your poinsettia purchase! 

 In addition, in support of  Outreach Projects with donations going to Neighbour Care Network, Christmas Urns will be available on the day of pickup for $35 each.  

Christmas Urns also Available for Pickup

You can pick up an urn anytime this week. The price is $35 each. The cheque can be made payable to MGUc with a note for NCN/Urns. The cheque can be dropped off in the secure box on the brick wall beside the accessible doors.

UNPAID Poinsettia ORDERS:
If you have not yet paid for your order we would ask that you do so by making a cheque out to MGUC and either mail it to the church office or drop it in the lock box located at the back of the church BEFORE the pick up date. This will make things run more smoothly.

ON PICKUP DATE:
Please plan on picking up your order BETWEEN 1 and 4 pm on Sat Dec 5. At the front of the church in the circle, someone will be outside to greet and identify you. Your order will then be brought out to you in your vehicle minimizing physical distancing and honouring covid-19 guidelines.  

UNABLE TO PICKUP?
Please let us know before Saturday, December 5th so that other arrangements can be made.  
Thanks again!

Yezedi Woman Update

Finally in each other’s arms….as it should be. After 6 years apart!

This photo is of them in Iraq. Mom will be there for 6 weeks or so helping to finalize identity papers to allow her daughter, Ronia, to eventually come and join her in Canada but we expect that to take about 6 months and some more funds.

Donations can be left in the church lock box on the wall to the right hand side of the door at the back of the church. Please mark “Ronia” on the cheque.


Your Outreach Committee

Grief Support Group

This education and support group is designed for those who are dealing with the death of a loved one. Taking a faith-based perspective, we will explore various aspects of grief, how grief affects one’s emotions, behaviours, body, mind and spirit. We will look at tasks one can do and adjustments one can make to move through grief, and help find ways to reinvest in one’s life in meaningful ways.

The contents of the course are based on the materials of
Dr. Bill Webster, Centre for the Grief Journey.

Leadership

The Rev. Dr. Deborah Hart
Minister of Deer Park United Church in Toronto, who has been facilitating
grief support groups for over 25 years.
