On October 21 (Anniversary Sunday), we will have one service only, beginning at 10:00 am. Happy 6th Anniversary, OVUC!
OVUC Soup & Dessert Luncheon – Please join us for our next Soup & Dessert Luncheon on Tuesday, November 6. We’ll be serving a choice of Hamburger Soup or Gingered Carrot Soup, homemade biscuits and rolls, tea/coffee, and Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Sauce for dessert, for $8.00 per person. Lunch is served from 11:45 am to 1:00 pm. Take-outs are available upon request (902-681-0366, ext 1, AdminOVUC@bellaliant.com) by Monday, November 5.
Senior Men’s Fellowship Luncheon – All retired and semi-retired men are cordially invited to the next Senior Men’s Luncheon at 12 noon on Friday, November 9. Cost is $5.00. Our speaker is Jennifer Kelday, Health Services Lead, Primary Health Care, Nova Scotia Health Authority. Jen will speak to us about the process, now underway, to create multi-discipline health care clinics in the Eastern Valley. This topic is of significant importance for all of us. For more information, please contact Dave Murphy, Jim Dewar, Harvey Gilmour or Chris Seymour.
9th Canucopia Food Bank Drive – Saturday, October 27, is Orchard Valley’s 9th Canucopia Food Drive. It will be held at the Atlantic Superstore in New Minas from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm. All donations (food or monetary) will be divided between the three local food banks (Fundy, Canning & Wolfville). OVUC needs your support for this worthy cause.
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.
VOLUNTEER HELP NEEDED – Like to sing or visit with the elderly? Please consider helping with Orchard Valley’s Worship for Seniors, the monthly worship services at some of the senior residences and nursing homes in our area. You can help with the location closest to you or whichever ones fit into your schedule each month. For more information or to volunteer, contact Andy Pitter (email@example.com) or a Worship committee member.
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).
Valley Foodgrains Bank Pumpkin Project – It is “Pumpkin time” in the Valley and a great opportunity for you to “Help End Global Hunger”, through the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Thank you for assisting people in developing countries with projects to improve their living conditions and way of life. Donations are matched 4:1 by the Government agency CIDA. Remember to consider the pumpkins at the front of the church as well as those in the foyer when making your choice. Thanks.
“Meet Your Feet” free monthly foot care is available from licensed foot care nurses during three sessions per month. No appointment necessary. Visit our webpage for more information: Meet Your Feet
