Welcome and Announcements — [Council member]

Good morning! And welcome to Mill Woods United Church!! My name is ? and as a member of the Church Council, I am pleased to open our gathering this morning.

Each Sunday, we gather to remember our sacred values, to discuss how we can live as followers of Jesus, and to express our hopes and dreams.

At Mill Woods United, we celebrate and mourn together, care for one another and our neighbours, and engage in practices that confront the mysteries of life and love.

Mill Woods is an Affirming congregation in the United Church. This means that we welcome people of every age, race, sexual orientation, gender expression, ability, and faith background. Each of us is a child of God; and so, we work to make the church a place where everyone feels safe no matter who we are.

We acknowledge the land on which we have gathered. This is the ancestral land of Treaty Six First Nations. All of us are Treaty people, for which we give thanks . . .

And now before worship, we take a minute for announcements. If you have an announcement, please come to the front now . . .

Greeting One Another

Seeing no more announcements, let us greet one another. If you don’t know your neighbour, please introduce yourself . . .
