With Grateful Thanks

Mary and I would like to thank all of you for making the celebration of the 25th anniversary of our ordinations a joyous and memorable affair. We know that it took a whole lot of people a whole lot of time and effort to pull off such a great event, and while it is always dangerous to single out individuals for thanks, (because it is almost inevitable that someone will inadvertently be missed) we would like to acknowledge the following persons and groups from NKUC for their part in making it a day to remember: Continue reading

A Later Start For Sunday Service

This is just a reminder that Sunday’s service – June 5 – will begin at 10:30 a.m., because it is our Celebration Sunday event, shared with the folks from Atlantic Garden City United Church in recognition of Rev. Mary Best’s and Rev. Marc Whitehead’s 25 years of ordination.

We’re also asking that those who are able to park on the street, as tables for the post-worship service barbecue will be set up in the parking lot, and we will have many guests from AGCUC in attendance.

May Edition of NKUC’s The Spirit Is Here

“At some level I think I always knew I would be a minister. I also know I didn’t always want to be. All those years ago as an undergraduate, with a double major in History and English with a minor in Philosophy, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with my life….”

Rev. Marc’s essay commemorating his 25th anniversary of ordination is featured in this edition of The Spirit. Download a copy here.

Lent

Lent is traditionally described as lasting for 40 days, in commemoration of the 40 days Jesus spent fasting in the desert where he endured temptation by the devil. Many Christians commit to fasting, prayer, repentance of sins or giving up certain types of luxuries to symbolize this time in Jesus’s life. In preparation for this time before Easter, let us commit ourselves to giving up: racism, anger, violence, greed, weapons, war, poverty, homelessness. Pray for compassion. Pray for transformation. Pray for peace. Click here to download a pdf of the February 2016 The Spirit.

NKUC Accessibility Project

SEE THE NKUC PROJECT PAGE FOR UPDATES

NKUC Accessibility Project 1North Kildonan United has been serving and partnering with the community since 1961. Our members are active in the community, contributing financially and with their time to several organizations. Our facility is also used by many groups. But we want to do more and we can — We are embarking on a major fund-raising campaign for an expansion so that we can be more for our community.

The project involves the installation of a handicap lift, allowing access by everyone to all three levels of the church complex. The total project has a price tag of almost $364,000. The congregation, by the end of December 2015, has raised over $98,000; with further commitments of over $55,000 to be made in the coming years. We need your help. Please read on for full details on the Accessibility Project and how you can help us reach our goal.

For further information please contact Marvelle McPherson: 204-663-6744; email bmmcpherson@mymts.net Or, donate directly by clicking here or on the Donate Now button at the top right of the website. Continue reading
