mgY gathering via Zoom

For high school,college and university students!
Friday, February 19th at 7pm we gather virtually via ZOOM. 

  • Let’s catch up with how we are all doing, especially as we observe the red zone regulations in Oakville.   
  • We didn’t have time last time to watch Michael’s film, so hopefully he will agree to show it to us tomorrow night.  Again –  no pressure Michael if you don’t want to do this. 
  • For a little faith talk, I would like to engage in a discussion and learning opportunity for all of us about Lent. 
  • What is Lent? 
  • Why have Lent?   
  • Is this something that may or may not impact my life as a Christian.  
  • A request to participate on Saturday, April 3rd with the “pilgrimage of the cross” with other Oakville United Churches.  I have the details to share with you. 

Looking forward to seeing you and discussing the above and other topics with you.  If you think your friends might be interested please forward this email.  For sure,  All are welcome!
Zoom link is in the eNews or email Rev. Kerry – revkerrymguc@gmail.com

Stay safe, stay warm and keep well.   Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow night. 

Peace,
Rev. Kerry (he/him)

MGUC volunteers prepare 50 meals at Kerr Street Mission.

Carol Heimbach and Wendy Duff, having recently volunteered to lead the team of volunteers at Maple Grove United Church (MGUC) in providing food for low-income and at-risk families at Kerr Street Mission, got off to a lightning fast start by preparing and providing 50 meals last Thursday at Kerr Street Mission (KSM). 

This program has been in place for some time between KSM and a number of groups including volunteers at MGUC.  Due to covid-19 restrictions a smaller group is currently involved and prepares the meals at KSM’s kitchen and then packs those meals in take out containers to be given out by KSM. 

Carol commented:
‘It was really quite moving to see the lineup of people last night, in the cold, waiting for their meal.’

Should you like to consider assisting this worthy cause financially, or through volunteering please refer to my earlier note about KSM Meals or feel free to contact me at hpwanless@gmail.com
