school kits program

Sunday, September 10 through Sunday, October 15

Your Outreach Team works hard to respond to God's call to help those in trouble and in need, either in our own community or around the world.  Once again, we are asking for your generous support in filling School Kits for distribution to destitute, poor and needy children both in Canada and overseas. When we give a child an education, we are giving them the opportunity to grow and support themselves and others with the goal to break the poverty cycle they are trapped in. Please visit the table in outside the Chapel and pick up your School Kit bags, requirement list and instructions, as soon as possible. If you are not able to completely fill the bag with the list of items, please bring them back with whatever you are able to assist and we can help with the extras to complete the bag.

Return the filled bags by Sunday, October 15.

fall bbq

Sunday, September 10 at 12pm

Location: Lower Hall

As we head out of summer and into the fall, we begin another wonderful year together at RDLUC. Join us for Kick-Off Sunday as we kick off the year with great worship and throw a free BBQ. It’s a chance to reconnect with our faith community and hear about some of the things we’ve got planned for the year. As always, everyone is welcome, wanted and accepted. Can’t wait to see you all there!

 

membership class

Monday, September 11 at 7pm

Location: TBD

We’re offering opportunities to step deeper into the church by becoming “full members" of RDLUC. “Full members” are people who have been baptized or confirmed, which means they’ve decided that their faith and spirituality is important to them and that they want to keep growing, exploring, serving, and becoming human here at RDLUC. It’s not about having all the answers, but about saying ‘I want to keep going!’ If that sounds like something you’d like to do, here’s how you can make that happen: Join Nick from 7-9pm where we’ll talk about our beliefs, values, and vision, hear about where you’re at on your journey, share what excites you about RDLUC, ask questions, and enjoy a good drink and some good food with good people. Then, if you still want to become a “full member,” we’ll have a special ceremony on a Sunday morning just for you. RSVP to save your spot for the September session – 403-256-3181 or office@reddeerlakeuc.com.

board meeting

Tuesday, September 12 at 7pm

Location: Multipurpose Room

In preparation for the upcoming RDLUC Board meeting, please submit any reports, minutes or concerns to the Church office at office@reddeerlakeuc.com by the Tuesday prior to the meeting in order for this information to be included in the docket and agenda.

cake bake

Saturday, September 16 at 9am

Location: Lower Kitchen

The Christmas Cake Bake is in September again this year so hope MANY of you can take a few hours and come to the Church to help mix, prepare loaf pans and bake Christmas cakes to sell this Fall. No experience necessary, just a willingness to help and meet others in the church.  If anyone has metal loaf pans please bring them (make sure your name is on them) and we will also need big steel bowls. There will be a signup sheet on the Get Involved Table, but if you don’t get to sign-up please just come as we always love help. We bring a bit of something for lunch to share and for those who would like to stay for a craft afternoon we will be there. Thanks and we look forward to having a great time! More info contact: Karen Norrie at kcheyanne@yahoo.com or 403.256.2977.

playtime

Saturday, September 16 at 10:30am

Location: Lower Hall

You are welcome to bring your Little Ones for an unstructured playtime, while the Moms and Dads enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and chat.
