WHAT IS THIS?
An informal gathering of men, women and couples from the congregation meet monthly, the fourth Sunday morning of each month, at 8:00 a.m. for breakfast, fellowship and an informative program. Many of the speakers are members of our congregation, meeting the dual objectives of interesting programs and getting to know fellow members.
All associated with our congregation and their guests are invited to attend; no reservation is necessary. We guarantee a friendly welcome, a good breakfast and a good time
NEXT PROGRAM: Sunday, 23 September: “The Life and Times of Anthony Gifford”: preacher, poet, author, musician, a bit of a Kingston celeb, and all-around fascinating guy. Cost is $3; kids under 12 are free. RSVP Craig Pettis: email or 613-634-0741 if you are plan to attend.
Sunday, October 28 – “Home Away from Home”. Remember when we started to welcome Syrian refugees to Kingston? Ever wonder how the families ERMUC helped welcome are doing? Come to breakfast this day and hear from Jean Stairs, our Syrian families, members of the West Kingston Refugee Partnership (WKRP) and friends from the Muslim community.
Sunday, November 25 – “Truth and Reconciliation: Are we There Yet?” In June 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) released the Executive Summary to its final report documenting its findings and 94 “calls to action” aimed at redressing the shameful history and legacy of residential schools and advancing the process of reconciliation in Canada. Each of the seven flames in the TRC’s logo represents one of the seven sacred teachings common to Indigenous communities: Truth, Humility, Honesty, Wisdom, Respect, Courage and Love. Have we made any progress? Come and hear from Indigenous leaders.
One of our many willing workers: Paul Van Nest, coordinators of the cooks!
So, don’t miss out on the chance to learn something and to get to know members of your church family. And besides, at a cost of only $3.00 each meeting, we still earn a little.
