Sanctuary Picture of Jesus

Our Sunday in person service will be on the lawn at Kilbride United Church at 10:00 a.m. We welcome back our guest leader, Rev. Stan Stainton. We enjoyed his leadership last week and personal stories of his life of faith. I was touched last week when he toured our sanctuary and commented on the picture of Christ and absence of a cross. Rev. Stan explained the focus of the church he grew up in focused on the life of Jesus and not the crucifixion.

Don’t forget Sunday, September 4th service will be in Kilbride at 10:00 a.m. followed by the Kilbride United Church 2021/2022 Annual Meeting. Sunday, September 11th services will be back to normal, Kilbride at 9:30 and Carlisle at 11:00 a.m.
