Mitten Tree 2020
The 2nd Nashwaaksis Scouting Group is selling Christmas Baskets as a fundraiser.
Only $40 for an abundance of fruits and vegetables!
Order your fruit or vegetable (or one of each!) by December 11, then you can pick up your basket(s) on December 18 and 19. If you are unable to pick up, the Scouting Group will deliver the basket(s) on December 19 and 20.
The idea of a Prayer Shawl is to use it with your daily prayers. It is to enfold you with a reminder of the Love of God and let you feel wrapped in the arms of Gods grace. On days when you just can’t pray, put the Prayer Shawl over you anyway and be embraced in the warmth of fellowship of those who are praying for you.
These shawls are available at no charge, for yourself or someone you may know. Please drop by the church office or give us a call.
- as of Wednesday, September 22, 2021 you must show your vaccination proof/medical exception letter and identification. Our action: We have our core list that have been attending church for the last 2 months. We will alphabetize the list and any additions. From Sunday, September 26th on, we will ask for your information and keep it for the future. For example, on Sunday, I will provide my information to the contact person and it will be recorded and filed for the future, so it does not have to be checked every week. The first time someone comes to the church, vaccination proof will be needed and added to the contact list. With this plan, we will not have registration beforehand. There will be a list to be checked off every service/meetings and updated with any new names and information.
- UPDATE: Masks are required in all indoor public spaces effective September 22, 2021
- UPDATE: Mandatory Order in effect September 24, 2021 at 11:59pm – Our action: We will require proof of vaccination for all participants of activities and events within the building. Everyone will be required to wear a mask, but there are no restrictions on capacity, seating, or singing.
The following three programs are being held at Forest Hill United Church.
Floor Curling: Floor Curling is a gentle way to get some exercise, see other people and have a few laughs. Forest Hill United Church offers Floor Curling on Wednesday mornings from 10 am till noon. No previous experience is needed. The “stones” are on wheels and can either be thrown by hand or with a stick that fits over the handle. The fee for the year is $10.00 plus $2.00 each time you attend. Your first visit is free to allow you to try it out. For more information, please contact Mary Grant in care of Forest Hill United Church at email@example.com
Community Volunteer Income Tax Program: Forest Hill United Church offers free Income Tax Service for people with limited means and simple tax returns. This service is offered in on-site clinics Friday mornings in April. However, we also offer a service year round for those who have not managed to have their taxes filed during tax season. Filing of previous years taxes is also available. To find out more about the program, or to find out if we can assist you, please contact Mary Grant in care of the Forest Hill United Church Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
