UCC Celebrates Its 90th Anniversary
Please join us on the front lawn of the church on Wednesday morning, June 10,as we celebrate the 90th anniversary of the United Church Canada.
We will gather at 10:15 a.m. to offer some brief prayers, and later ring our “bells”, and share birthday cake and light refreshments with one another and passersby.
The United Church of Canada came into being on Wednesday, June 10, 1925. The inaugural service began at 10:30 a.m. That is why 10:30 a.m. was chosen as the time, in every time zone, for United Churches to celebrate their presence in the community.
“Whether you’re the only United Church in town with a lone church bell ringing, or in a community where it’s possible for many church bells to ring in unison, may we all make a joyful noise to the Lord on June 10,” says UCC Moderator, the Right Rev. Gary Paterson.
