Kids' Church and Youth Ministry
September 6 & 13 · Sunday
Registration forms will be available in Memorial Hall after worship on Sept 6 & 13. If you miss the registration dates, please head downstairs with your children and youth and ask the leaders for a form.
Scripture Reflection Tuesdays
Begins Sept 8 · Tuesday
Join Rev. Karen Bridges in the Club Room over lunch on Tuesdays to reflect on the scripture passages for the upcoming Sunday. This is an informal gathering of people. At 12:10 we will begin with prayer. We will read the scripture passage out loud, then we will take some time to write, or sit and reflect on the words of the scripture. After about 10-15 minutes in silence we will have a conversation about what the scriptures were stirring in you on that day. You do not need to be a Biblical Scholar. God speaks to each of us through the scriptures and it is always wonderful to hear the diversity of messages that are received.
Bring a bible and a journal, or simply yourself! Come when you can and bring your lunch if you wish.

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.
