Hi everyone,
 
I hope this finds you having had a good week. I want to highlight a few announcements for the coming week:
 

Tomorrow 

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, 6 - 7:30 pm. You'll find registration details in this newsletter.  Why not dish up and join us at an online table for some conversation and connection with one another. Everyone welcome!
 

This Sunday

As part of our service time together, I will be sharing with you the Transition and Visioning Team Report which was submitted to Council this past week. In it, you will hear some of the ideas the Team has for WInfield United moving forward.
 

Next Saturday

October 24th: Voting Day! Elections BC will be occupying our sanctuary space with polling stations all day and evening.
 

Next Sunday

October 25th:  Because of the COVID protocols and the need to clean the sanctuary following the Election, we will not be having an in-person service this day. The service will take place on ZOOM only. If you would like assistance in learning about Zoom and how to connect to online services, please do not hesitate to bring your device and Verena or I will be happy to help you.
 
Wishing you all a cozy fall weekend. See you Sunday!
 
Peace,
Joan
