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.
Church Office Hours: The office will be open to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12-4:30pm. In case of any changes to regular office hours due to illness or other circumstances, a notice will be posted on the church FB page and, when possible, on the front doors as well. Summer office hours will begin the week of June 26 - during the summer, the office will be open Thursdays from 12-3pm only.
Scripture/Announcement Readers Needed for Summer 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 August onward is now up on the Circle of Service Board just inside the sanctuary.
Congregational Meeting THIS Sunday June 25: immediately following worship THIS SUNDAY June 25 there will be a congregational meeting for the purpose of receiving the report from the Mission & Ministry Focus Group, with more details provided during the meeting. This meeting will be held both in-person and online. A zoom link was circulated on Wednesday by email for those wishing to join online.
The M&M Group Report can be found here. Please note that the report will be updated to include the most recent data as soon as it is available.
Pastoral Care May-July: For non-emergency pastoral care between May-July, please contact the church office by phone or email with your contact information and any details you wish to share. We will put you in touch with pastoral care personnel.
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.

Pastoral Emergency Contact July 1-14: Elsie M at 506-364-8912
Thank You Choir: The SUC choir, after their first full season back singing in-person since the start of the pandemic, is now taking a well-earned summer break. Please join me (Jennie) in thanking the choir for the dedication, talent, and enthusiasm as they share in musical ministry with each other and the congregation. Choir will resume the week of September 17!
Also On Pause for the Summer: Thank you to everyone who came out for the final Senior's Lunch Group event before summer break. Thank you as well to everyone who continues to participate in Coffee and Conversation with Open Sky, which had its final meeting before summer pause earlier this month. Both groups will resume in the fall - details TBA.
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.
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!
