You’ve Got A Friend is just what the name implies – Orchard Valley (us), reaching out to others in our congregation who might appreciate a phone call, an email, a friendly “hello”, happy birthday, a condolence, or “is there anything you need?” We are Orchard Valley and we are here for each other. If you would like to be part of this “friendship web”, we are looking for more volunteers. Feel free to contact the office (902-681-0366, ext 1; AdminOVU@bellaliant.com).
Facilities Committee Report – “The committee established by the congregation to develop a plan to renovate and/or expand our present Church building has been consulting with local architect Mark Hughes doing so in partnership with B.D. Stevens Ltd of Halifax. The Committee has held its initial meeting at which time the data collection and OVUC Congregational research done to date by an earlier committee chaired by Jane McDonald was reviewed to transition us into this development phase. Our next meeting will be to receive the early recommendations from the architect on ways to accommodate identified priority needs as OVUC looks ahead with service, program and outreach goals.
Guys’ Cans – The Men’s Group wish to remind everyone to return their Guys’ Cans to the church by Sunday, December 2. Income tax receipts will be issued to all who support the fundraiser. The funds are used to support the general operating expenses of the Church and to fund special projects within the church as administered by the Men’s Group from time to time. Thank you for your support.
- During the fall/winter/spring session, we offer an informal 9:00 am service, and an 11:00 am service that is more structured.
- During the summer session, we offer a 9:30 am worship service at Orchard Valley United Church and an 11:00 am worship service at the Covenanter Church, in Grand Pre.
All God’s children are welcome at each service.
Please see the OVUC bulletin board for November registration dates and times. Please bring ID for each person in the household, proof of income for all those over 18, and proof of address.
Visitation/Prayer Requests – To ask for prayers or for a visit can be difficult at times. There are visitation or prayer request slips available at the back of the church. Feel free to pick one up and place it in the offering tray, or in the church ‘box’ on the entry table, or to the minister directly if you prefer. If you are unable to make it to church, please call the office for a confidential referral (902-681-0366, ext 1).
