Thursday Thoughts

September 13, 2018

This Sunday both of our faith communities come together for the
Welcome and Welcome Back Service. It takes place at Riverview United @ 10 am.

Slide1

Potluck brunch/lunch to follow – bring sandwiched, sweets, muffins, fruit etc. Coffee and tea will be provided.

Next Sunday, September 30th is Orange Shirt Day!
Everyone is invited to wear an orange shirt to remember and honour all the Indigenous children who went to Residential School and those children who died at school.
