June 18 announcements

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 (506-536-0498) or email (suc@nb.aibn.com) and a member of our Pastoral Care Team will be in touch ASAP. We are here for you and for each other!



Celebrate Sackville Pride: TOMORROW (Wednesday, June 14) from 5:30-7pm at Bill Johnstone Park there will be a "Pride Picnic". This is not only a great opportunity to gather and celebrate, but also a chance to stand in solidarity with those whose safety and wellbeing is increasingly at risk because of actions like the recent proposed changes to Policy 713. All ages and colours of the rainbow welcome - bring a blanket or chair!


Sunday Worship: Our Regular Sunday Worship is held at 11am both in-person at Sackville United and online via our SUC Facebook Page. Mask-wearing and accommodation for those who wish to remain distanced will continue until otherwise stated. For those not on FB but wishing to watch online, a link to the video of the service will be posted on the church website in the days immediately following the service.

For Pastoral Emergencies, please call the number listed on your pastoral care postcard (available via the church office or on Sundays). This number will also be on the church answering machine and available via the current week's email. Please note that different members of the pastoral care contact team will be "on call" for different weeks, and they will arrange emergency pastoral care for you.

Games Night at SUC!

Games Night at SUC: SPECIAL DAYS IN JUNE: Owing to other professional commitments, Games Night will meet on Tuesday June 20, and Thursday June 29 - one week later than our usual! On the second Tuesday and third Thursday of the month from 6-8pm, a small group are gathering at SUC to play RPG (role play) and other games. If you are interested in joining this group, please speak with Christy Watts.



Seniors Fellowship Lunches: meeting THIS Tuesday! For the final lunch before a summer pause, you are invited to join the "regulars" at Pattersons Restaurant on Tuesday, June 20 at noon. Please contact the church office or speak to Brenda Allen so we can have an idea of how many tables to reserve - rides are available for those who might need them! All seniors welcome!


Scripture/Announcement Readers Needed for Spring Services: Would you be interested in reading on Sunday Morning? You may sign up on the list on the Circles of Service Board or by calling the Church office. On Thursday afternoon the Church Office will communicate with you and provide you with the specific text(s) you will be asked to read, including the possibility of a selection of modern wisdom in the form of a quote from a current text. A sign-up sheet for scripture/announcement readers for Spring/Summer is on the Circle of Service Board just inside the sanctuary. Scripture readers are still needed for the following Sundays: July 23. A sign-up for August and September will be up in coming weeks.


Prayer Bench Group Subscription: We have purchased a group subscription to Rev. Janice MacLean's "Prayer Bench" for the year, including a number of individual email "retreats" and series. If you are interested in receiving these resources please contact the church office.

Parents and Tots: Parents and Tots meets Thursday Mornings from 9:30am to 11:00am at St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. There is no charge, and volunteers are present to assist with childcare. Bring your young ones for a time of community, play and fellowship (and a chance to chat with other grownups!).


Cell Phones Needed for Ensemble Moncton: Are you upgrading to a newer model and have a spare phone sitting in a drawer somewhere? Ensemble Moncton provides cellphones to their clients to connect them to services and the community. The clients work closely with the Wellness Navigator at Ensemble to access services in health, justice and social sectors. Funding is very hard to access for cellphone provision because of the harmful assumptions placed on individuals dealing with addictions and substance use. Drop off phones at ENSEMBLE, 80 Weldon Street, Moncton, daily between 8:30 am and 3:30 pm. Phone (506)859-9616 and ask for Ashley if more information is required. Any cell phones (and chargers!) dropped off at the church office will be brought to Moncton by Jennie or Rev. Lloyd.


Thank you to those who have donated cell phones so far. Ensemble will ensure that all data/information is wiped from phones donated before they are distributed.



What's New at Broadview: The United Church magazine has a variety of topical articles on subjects that reflect many of the interests and initiatives of our congregation. Please contact the church office to renew your subscription if you have not already and/or to sign up through our discounted group subscription rate of only $25/year. New subscriptions can be added at anytime of year!
