Seconds for Stewardship – Good News! We have gifts to share!
It is that time of the year when we all are recovering from the many social events and responsibilities of the Christmas season. We’ve all heard it said that “actions speak louder than words,” and the new year provides us with a great opportunity for all of us to speak volumes without opening our mouths.
We are still looking for contributions of time, talent and treasure ot the Church for this year.
WHO ARE WE NOW?
Your Transition Team invites you to participate in a workshop on our identity as a congregation
SUNDAY, JANUARY 27th, from Noon till 2:00 p.m.
(lunch will be included)
Participants will have opportunity to share and reflect in small groups on:
- What we have learned about ourselves from our congregation’s history
- If our congregation today was person,
A Christmas Eve Pageant will be part of worship at the 6 p.m. worship service at Maple Grove United on Christmas Eve. There are a few speaking parts and a number of none speaking parts that need volunteers to take on the role. We are looking for a Mary and Joseph, shepherds, angels, two Narrators, and maybe some animals (or stuffed animals) such as donkey, sheep, cow, birds. There is a sign up sheet at the back of the sanctuary today.
The Caring Team of Maple Grove United reaches out to people in our church family and community in times of need for support, prayer, and encouragement. We do that through visitation, prayer, food delivery, prayer shawls, crosses, co-ordination of funeral and memorial services, lending medical and surgical equipment, and Christmas care baskets. The Team provides a “Shadow” for the minister at the conclusion of the Sunday services, accompany the minister at the Oakville hospital church services, and assist with the annual Memory Service held in Advent.

Seconds for Stewardship
Let us remember the gifts we have received from God, and in our turn become God’s giving hands in this world.
While our 2019 Stewardship campaign is officially closed, we still have only about half the Commitment cards collected compared to last year. For those of you who have made a pledge, we thank you! For those of you who have not yet made a pledge, please fill out a Commitment card and deposit it into the sealed box in the back foyer of the Church.
