Sunday Service: Beyond Hatch, Match and Dispatch

September 29 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

This Sunday at 10:30am we welcome our dedicated Lay Chaplaincy Committee who will speak about their exploration of personal rituals such as pet memorials and croning ceremonies. UU Lay Chaplains are ambassadors of our warm and welcoming tradition, providing services to non-UUs who are seeking meaning rituals to mark life transitions. Helen Graham and her wonderful oboe will provide the musical gift. Congregational leaders meet this Saturday for the Fall Focus retreat, this is an opportunity for learning and connection as we work together to serve the mission of this spiritual community. I am away this Sunday but look forward to being with you all again next week. Blessings, Fiona

Children Chatter

September 29 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Last Sunday one of the characters in the story for all ages said "Throw it out!" when her son's favourite blanket started to wear out. Undaunted, our young hero and his grandfather persevered to create five more much loved items from the original blanket. In the end, the boy figures out all on his own how to create one more thing. Do you remember what that was? Children will be meeting after the Story for all Ages in Founder's Hall with Sheila and Cathy Taffler to continue recycling projects and also make personal chalices. Craft stations will be set up with crafts suitable for ages 5-12. See you soon. Sheila Bjarnason, Acting DLL

Volunteer Fair: Festive Fair

September 29 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm
Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga Festive fair

There's less than two months until our annual Festive Fair on November 16th! We will be holding a volunteer info session and sign-up after service on September 29th so please think about how you want to be involved. There are many areas where you can help: Café – Paula McNaughton is looking for soup makers and dessert bakers and for lots of assistance preparing sandwiches and serving on the day of the fair. Treasure Trove – Judy Benger is stepping down this year so we need one or two people to organize this popular area, as well as sales help on the day of the fair. We accept household items to sell in good and very clean condition no larger than an airplane carry on. Popular items include jewellery, decorative items and serving dishes. Silent Auction – Sheila Bjarnason and John Rowell are looking for donations of restaurant and store gift certificates as well as items in perfect condition too valuable for the treasure trove. Bake Table – Gertrud and Ed Bieri are seeking donations of pies, loaves and cookies. Holiday themed goods are especially popular. Greeters and Ticket Sales. – we need 4-6 people for these key tasks. Publicity – help is required to put up lawn signs and posters in the weeks prior to the Fair. As this is my last year as Chair please let me know if you are interested in taking on the Festive Fair in 2020. It would be great if you could work with me this year to help with a smooth transition. Candice Rice
