Intergenerational Services for All Ages: People of all ages (and their service pets!) are always welcome at Sackville United. Activity packs and craft supplies are available on the pew in the front hallway before entering the sanctuary for anyone who desires them! Although we do not have a weekly Sunday School program for fall 2022, we do have a series of intergenerational services planned with all ages (particularly children and youth) in mind:

Coffee and Conversation with Open Sky: As part of our Seniors Sharing the Table program, Sackville United and Open Sky host a weekly coffee hour Wednesday mornings at 10:00am, with snacks, hot and cold beverages, and an opportunity to connect with community in conversation.
Scripture Readers Needed for Fall 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. For convivence sake the season/theme of each Sunday is listed along with all of the texts for that Sunday according to the Revised Common Lectionary on the Sign-Up Sheet. 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. The Worship and Sanctuary Committee thanks you for sharing in this ministry.

“Kate Bowler is the only one we can trust to tell us the truth.”—Glennon Doyle, author of the #1 New York Timesbestseller Untamed
It’s hard to give up on the feeling that the life you really want is just out of reach. A beach body by summer. A trip to Disneyland around the corner. A promotion on the horizon. Everyone wants to believe that they are headed toward good, better, best. But what happens when the life you hoped for is put on hold indefinitely? With dry wit and unflinching honesty, Kate Bowler grapples with her diagnosis, her ambition, and her faith as she tries to come to terms with her limitations in a culture that says anything is possible. She finds that we need one another if we’re going to tell the truth: Life is beautiful and terrible, full of hope and despair and everything in between—and there’s no cure for being human. Church Envelopes and PAR: Offering envelopes and PAR signup forms are available in the church office for anyone interested. Offering envelopes from previous years can continue to be used, but please write your name on the envelope if it is more than 3 years old. New from Broadview: Check out some of the latest articles available through Broadview online. Annual print subscriptions are only $25/year and are renewed in November through the church office. Please contact the church office to renew your subscription and/or to sign up through our discounted group subscription rate!
