King City United Church

What a week! Sunday was supposed to be our outdoor worship at the Kell Farm. Two hours before worship was to begin, a thunderstorm rumbled through King Township. The decision was made to implement “Plan B” which meant we moved worship into the church auditorium…lawn chairs and all. Although the setting wasn’t what was expected, everyone enjoyed this unexpected twist. A special treat was the refugee family whom King City UC help support along with other churches in the area joined us for worship. At the conclusion of worship, everyone enjoyed a picnic potluck lunch and fellowship together.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you! Despite another downpour just prior to our Manitoulin Fish Fry on Saturday, the event was a huge (pardon that expression) success. Alma Feindell deserves special recognition for organizing this event and hosting dinner for the crew from Manitoulin Island who brought and expertly cooked the fish for us. There were many comments on how good the fresh whitefish tasted. So many people worked to make this a success and we thank you all. This is such a big task but with many helpful hands, we all survived and actually had fun in doing so. A special thanks to university student Jessica Sinka who organized a flower raffle to raise money for the church.

As summer descends upon us, remember that King City United will hold worship services every Sunday morning at 10 AM. You are welcome to join us and give thanks for the gifts we enjoy as residents of King Township.

Interested in scrapbooking or card making? We will be holding a workshop on Saturday, June 24th from 9 AM‐5 PM. Cost is $25 to help defray expenses and includes a small donation to the church. Please pass the word along to those you know who like to scrapbook or create cards. Lots of laughter, food and creativity! Please call our Office Administrator Kristen at 905‐833‐5181 to register or obtain more information.

Join us for breakfast at 10 AM at Sunset Grill in King City. There’s always a lot to discuss. We usually are sitting at the table inside the doors on the right. Come and make some new friends.

King City United is located at 50 Elizabeth Grove, King City. Worship is every Sunday at 10 AM. Sunday school, for the young people, will resume in the Fall. For more information, call our Office Administrator Kristen at 905-833-5181 or visit our website: www.kcuc.ca
