Haliburton Pastoral Charge

The United Church of Canada is calling for prayers, and has launched an appeal for donations that will provide humanitarian relief to Haiti, Cuba, and nearby Caribbean countries devastated by Hurricane Matthew. The United Church has contributed $20,000 from its Emergency Response Fund to partners in Haiti and the surrounding region. You can donate through your church treasurer or by going to www.united-church.ca and follow the link Social Action at the top of the page.  Be sure to note “Emergency Response—Hurricane Matthew” on the face of your cheque.

Pastoral Charge Joint Service at Haliburton Sunday, November 27 at 10:30 am.  This is the first Sunday of Advent and communion will be served.  Haliburton will not be serving lunch that day as the Festival Singers are holding a concert in the afternoon and need time to set up.
