Anniversary Sunday – On Sunday, October 20, OVUC will celebrate Anniversary Sunday at both worship services. We will also celebrate another baptism at the 11:00 am service. There will be cake and refreshments to follow.
Worship Services – Orchard Valley offers two worship services:
- During the fall/winter/spring session, we offer an informal 9:00 am service, and an 11:00 am service that is more structured, both at Orchard Valley.
- During the summer session (July & August), we offer a 9:30 am worship service at Orchard Valley United Church in New Minas and an 11:00 am worship service at the Covenanter Church, in Grand Pre.
All God’s children are welcome at each service.
Halloween Bake Sale, October 27 – The Seekers Youth Group will have a Halloween-themed bake sale after both worship services on Sunday, October 27. Proceeds will go to the SPCA. If you would like to help by donating baked goods, please contact Andy Pitter (902-542-1545; firstname.lastname@example.org) OR bring donations to the Boardroom before either worship, preferably ready for sale (i.e. packaged in some way for people to take home).
