Your Social Justice Committee invites you to reflect that today is the second Global Day of Prayer to End Famine – to be observed in faith congregations worldwide. Give us this day our daily bread. Matthew 6:11 How little thought we give to those oft spoken words! Our world produces enough food to feed everyone. But one in nine still go to bed hungry. One in three (particularly children under five) are suffering malnutrition. Today we offer love, concern and prayers for the 20 million facing starvation across Africa and the Middle East.

But action must follow our prayers. If not, our faith is meaningless and does no good. The United Church has launched an Extreme Hunger Appeal. Organizations such as ACT Alliance and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank are helping. Please support those who are hungry in as many ways as you can. For more information and to help address world hunger or to make a donation to improve food secrurity in areas of extreme need please see https://foodgrainsbank.ca/

WHO ARE WE AS THE
UNITED CHURCH OF CANADA?

The United Church of Canada is the largest Protestant denomination in Canada. We minister to over 2 million people in about 3,000 congregations. The history of the United Church is closely entwined with the history of Canada itself.

The United Church was inaugurated on June 10, 1925 in Toronto, Ontario, when the Methodist Church, Canada, the Congregational Union of Canada, and 70 per cent of the Presbyterian Church of Canada entered into a union. Also joining was the small General Council of Union Churches, centred largely in Western Canada.

It was the first union of churches in the world to cross historical denominational lines and received international acclaim. Each of the founding churches had a long history in Canada prior to 1925. The movement for church union began with the desire to coordinate ministry in the vast Canadian northwest and for collaboration in overseas missions. Congregations in Indigenous communities from each of the original denominations were an important factor in the effort toward church union.

The United Church continues to be a “uniting” church, and has been enriched by several additional unions since 1925. In 1930, the Synod of The Wesleyan Methodist Church of Bermuda became part of The United Church of Canada’s Maritime Conference. The Evangelical United Brethren Church became part of The United Church of Canada in 1968. In addition, various individual congregations from other Christian communions have became part of the United Church over the years.

Report from the 93rd Annual General Meeting
of the Maritime Conference

Last weekend clergy and congregational representatives met in Sackville, NB for the annual gathering of the Maritime Conference. The meetings ran from Thursday evening until Sunday morning and were filled with time for prayer, discussion, and reflection on the work of the Conference and the future of the United Church.

The United Church is in the process of changing the way we work together and following the remits last year (the questions we talked about last fall) the whole chruch is waiting for the General Council this summer to see the exact direction of those changes. Needless to say the bulk of the work at Conference this year was getting representatives elected to go to those meetings as well as conerns that congregations or presbyteries felt the General Council needed to consider.

Since the proposed changes to the church include the elimination of Conference and the creation of Regions (The churches in Nova Scotia will form Region 15) a great deal of the table time at Conference was taken up looking at and giving thanks to God for the work and ministry that have happened through Conference over the last 93 years.

As always the high point for me personally was the opportunities to reconnect with colleagues and friends from around the Maritimes. The Youth Forum have always been a special part of Conference and they led the Saturday Night worship with their usual energy and enthusiasm.

This year the Conference ordained four new ministers including Mary Jolene (vandeValk) Harrison. We also received a new minister who transferred from the Presbyterian Church in Canada.

The Holy Spirit continues to move through our church and while there are uncertainties about how the church will adjust to the new way of doing things there is also excitement around the life and ministry which are ours within the United Church of Canada

Adopt-A-Highway Clean Up – due to unforeseen circumstances, I will be unable to coordinate the clean up this spring. But if St James is to do a spring clean up, it needs to be done soon. I anticipate continuing in this role in the fall. The “spring” organizer needs approximately 2-3 hours they can commit in addition to 2 hours on the day of the clean up itself. I will probably be able to assist in the organizing. If you think you can organize the clean up for this one time only, please see me after the service today, or call me at 232-3473. Thank you – Michèle Ashby

OLD STUMP FROLIC
SATURDAY, June 9 – 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Just 2 more weeks until our annual Old Stump Frolic. This is an event put on by our congregation, so now is the time to see what you can do to make this fun day the best ever. The following is a list of the various tables, conveners and their telephone numbers. Hopefully there will be good weather but, if not, we will still carry on inside the church. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Judi MacPherson (863-1006) or Joanne Clifton (863-5049).

BAKE / FUDGE TABLE – Carol Kell
With so many working moms, this table always draws a large crowd. HOMEMADE bread, muffins, loaves, cakes, pies, squares, cookies and fudge are all popular items. VERY IMPORTANT: Remember to note any special ingredients (nuts, peanut butter, chocolate, eggs, cream cheese, etc.). This helps in the pricing and alerts those families with allergies. Drop off Friday June 8nd 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm or Saturday June 9 8:00 am to 9:30 am.

WHITE AND SILVER ELEPHANT TABLES – Chris Morrison (White) Barb Gardiner (Silver)
The items on the White Elephant table are things you would normally see at a yard sale. Silver Elephant goods are slightly better quality. Please No CLOTHING, NO COMPUTERS, PRINTERS, KEYBOARDS or OLDER STYLE TV’S. These items simply do not sell. Drop off Week of June 4, 10:00 am to 12 Noon.

SILENT AUCTION -Liz Millett and Mike Cooke – 863-2668
Do you have something special – a painting, china, a beautiful door wreath, etc. – that you know would be a popular item to bid on? Perhaps you can offer a dinner for 2 to 4 people, lawn mowing or some other service. Businesses are not solicited, so we’re counting on you to provide good quality items. IMPORTANT: Please give an approximate value for your donation to aid in the starting bid amount. Please drop off at office.

PLANTS –
Any houseplants or cuttings are welcome on this table, as well as any outdoor plants or bulbs. Rhubarb is always very popular at this time of year. IMPORTANT: Every year people ask what the name of certain plants are and sometimes whoever is working that table does not know. So please put a note with the plant stating what it is. It will be appreciated by all concerned. Drop off Friday June 8, 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm or Saturday June 9, 8:00 am to 9:30 am.

BOOKS – Gina Sampson
Now is the time to go through all those books that have been lying around the house gathering dust. IMPORTANT: No textbooks, encyclopaedias. Everyone loves books, so pack up your paperbacks and hard-covered books that you know you’ll never read again. Children’s books in good condition are always welcome by the wee ones. Drop off Week of June 4, 10:00 am to 12 Noon.

WE WILL BE HAVING MUSICAL ENTERTAINMENT, OUR HOT DOG BARBECUE, COLD DRINKS, A LUNCHEON OF SANDWICHES AND COOKIES, AND GAMES AND FACE PAINTING FOR THE CHILDREN. AS WELL, THE VERY POPULAR FARM PETTING ZOO. WE HOPE YOU WILL SPREAD THE WORD AND COME OUT AND SUPPORT OUR CHURCH. WE CAN MAKE THIS THE BEST STUMP FROLIC EVER WITH YOUR HELP.
