MAY 21, 2016

We are drawn together on our journeys of faith 

Last Sunday was the celebration of Pentecost, the beginning of the Christian Church.(some believe that that was the day God came to earth) .  Most of the congregation wore red, the church was decorated in red, yellow and white, and many of us were given the same colour of pompoms to wave at the appropriate times.  We were treated to a lovely anthem sung by the Mens' Occasional Choir, led by Malcolm Olsen, who also filled in as music director.  

A series of Dramatic Readings were performed and the Word for All Ages explained the meaning of Pentecost, especially for the children, but informative to many of us adults as well.


The U.C.W.  meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 24th at Frankie's Restaurant, near the church, at 5:30 p.m.  This will be the last meeting before the summer break, and start-up on September 27th.

The Rotary Trail Walks will begin again on Sunday, May 29th at 7:00.  Meet at the Peach Street parking lot.

Mark This Date - June 12th 10:30 a.m.    Worship and Church Picnic at Gwynne Vaughan Park.  Plan to attend for worship, fellowship, games and BBQ lunch.  Always a great event! Please indicate in the special column of the pink sheets, for planning and preparation of food, the number of your family members that will be attending.  You are welcome to bring friends and family who are not members of Carman.
