We hope that you are well. If you are in need - physically, spiritually, or otherwise - don't hesitate to reach out to us by phone (506-940-1151) or email (email@example.com). We are here for you and for each other!
Sunday Worship: Our Sunday services are at 11am online via our SUC Facebook Page. We will continue to join in community online until New Brunswick returns to Level 1. A link to the video of the service will be posted on the church website following the end of the livestream as we continue to struggle to broadcast the service live via our website.
Office Hours: The office will be open to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12-4:30pm by appointment only. In keeping with Covid Best Practices for Safety, if Jennie experiences any symptoms she will work from home. Please phone the church office during regular hours or email to arrange a time for your visit.
Sunday Conversation and Fellowship Via Zoom: Shortly following the end of upcoming Sunday services, especially if they continue to remain online only, we will offer the chance to gather and share in a time of community and conversation - BYOS:bring your own snacks ;) - via Zoom.

Sunday Seekers Book Circle: The seekers book circle is always reading something that sparks thought and conversation!

Offering Envelopes: Anyone wishing new offering envelopes is welcome to contact the church office for a set. Those with leftover envelopes from previous years are welcome to continue using them as your number will continue to be matched with you.
Gifts with Vision 2021-22 - an excellent source of gifts and giving for the whole year!: Although a new year has started, the needs of our wider community (both near and far) are still very present. For the person who has "everything", why not consider a donation (birthday, Valentine's Day, Easter) Read more about the program and visit the gifts with vision website here. A limited number of print copies are available in the church office.
