The worship resources for Sunday September 4, 2022 are available to download. The online links are below. Order of Service prepared by Rev. Allison Playfair, music selected by Heather Olaveson.

The weather network predicts rain tonight and tomorrow so we may need to hold our service in the sanctuary instead of on the lawn. We think all will agree that it has been wonderful to worship outside on the lawn under the shade tree. Welcome back Rev. Allison from her vacation. I am sure everyone is eager to reconnect with her and find out how Allison recharged her batteries. 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.

Thank you to the Carlisle Worship team led by Catherine Swatten for preparing the communion elements for this Sunday’s service.
