Youth Group – Halloween Party

WUC Youth Group got together for a memorable Halloween Party!  Reverend Brenda and Reverend Matteo Carboni (from the St. Andrews Anglican Church in Humboldt) hosted the event with lots of fun (and spooky) activities which included; apple bobbing for worms, worm in whip cream search (with their faces!), pumpkin carving, blind-folded food guessing, and discussion around the origination of the holiday.  Otherwise, a pretty typical Friday night at Youth Group!

Youth Group – Games Night!

There was a huge turnout for the WUC Youth Group on October 21st for the games night!  A total of 16 kids from grade 6 to 10 showed up with some of their favorite games for an evening of good times and laughter.  The night got kicked off with an old favorite, Rummoli, and ended with a variety of groups playing cards, bananagrams, video games, and clue.  We’re not sure what went over better, the games or the snacks… both tables were plenty busy!

Don’t forget to come out to the big Halloween Mashup this coming up week (Oct 28th).  Dress up in costume and join Reverend Brenda in celebrating Halloween and discussing the traditions of Halloween and All Saint’s Day.

Fundraiser – WUC Garage Sale

On October 15th, 2016, Westminster held our now annual garage sale event to raise money for the Sound and Sidewalk fund.  The garage sale was a huge success and was all made possible by the generous donations of our congregation, baking sales provided by the WUC Youth Group, and of course the exceptional donation of the facility at Misty Gardens!  Thank you everyone for your generosity!

Confirmation Sunday

Through celebration of confirmation:  Julie Francis Frostad & Brody Daniel Hinz

“God calls each of us and claims us, inviting us into a deep relationship, which can change the way we view the world.  So, we come in this time, to this place, in response to God’s call, to seek the gift of new life given through the baptism of water and the Spirit, and through confirmation in faith.  It is with joy and thanksgiving we celebrate the faith we all share, and rededicate ourselves to the life and work of the body of Christ.”

Bless Your Pets Service

October 2, 2016 was a busy and exciting day at Westminster United Church and not the least of the excitement was a chance for the congregation to bring their beloved pets to be a part of the annual “Bless Your Pets Service”.  The service was filled with fun, laughter, blessings, and some unexpected chain reactions… (you’ll have to get the scoop on that from one of the attendees!).  At the end of it all, everyone had a wonderful time sharing their other family members with their friends at the church.
