Bring these along to the church hall on Monday, October 29th. Even if you don't have anything to contribute, come along and make a purchase and help out. We need your HELP. There are only a few of us in the U.C.W and we need other church members to come along Monday and/or Tuesday to help with sorting and pricing, etc. We will also be selling coffee and muffins.

The Church Board recently circulated requests for proposals to replace the church furnace. Suppliers were asked to quote on doing a complete job. This involves removing the floor in the porch, taking out the old furnace, replacing with a new furnace and restoring the floor to it's original condition. Five quotations were received, however, one was not considered since it required us to do all the carpenter work and heavy lifting. The lowest price quotation was accepted from Dawson's Plumbing and Heating Ltd. in the amount of $9,430 HST included. Delivery is scheduled for October 29th with installation early November. To pay for the furnace we had to cash a Guaranteed Investment Certificate which was put aside for something unexpected. This depletes our savings and now puts us in a
very poor position should another crisis occur. Your financial support is very important to ensure our church remains viable.
Several church members suggested we examine heat pumps instead of a furnace. The suppliers were asked to suggest alternative heating systems. One written quotation was received for heat pumps which was in excess of $60,000 not including major alterations to the church. Another supplier made a site visit but verbally indicated that heat pumps were not suitable for this church.

This is an exciting time for The United Church of Canada
as we begin to live into the new reality, we want to name our Region. At present we are Region 16. Although that would do, we think there might be a new and more creative way of naming our region; and we are seeking your help in this effort.
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
YOU ARE INVITED to ponder and prayerfully consider a name for Region 16 – a name that reflects who we are as an area and/or what we are about. How do we want to move forward from here, and who do we want to say we are? When people hear our name, will they know who and where we are?
You are invited to send possible names for our region to the Conference Office (email@example.com) not later than October 26, 2018. The name must be no longer than 44 characters. A panel will select one name from those submitted. The winner will receive a prize.
So put your thinking caps on, and let’s come up with a truly reflective name!
Please let us know if you have a sick family member or you would like a call or a visit from Pastor Glenn. He can be reached at 689-5794 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
