Pizza and a Movie
Jedi Stewardship Training
Oct 4 · Sun · 12:30 to 3:00 pm
We will be watching The Empire Strikes back, one of the most epic Star Wars movies where we will witness Luke Skywalker's Jedi training with Master Yoda. This movie has inspired this year's Stewardship Theme: "The Force is growing stronger... are you with it?" As we learn about the Force through this movie we will begin exploring what God is calling us to do in this world of ours. How will our actions bring light to the world? It is time for our own leap of faith or as Yoda says: "Do or do not. There is no try." This is an event for all ages!! Dress up as your favorite character.

Open Hearts—Open Community

In response to God's call, we,
the congregation of Robertson-Wesley United Church,
declare our commitment to opening our hearts and our church family
to all people in our community,
regardless of sexual orientation, age, gender,
differing abilities, ethnicity, or economic circumstance.
We recognize that many people's lives continue
to be devastated by hatred, prejudice, and inequality,
therefore, as a compassionate and caring spiritual community
we will stand with those who are adversely affected
by injustice, alienation and oppression.
