On Sunday we welcome to Rev. Richard Clarke upon his return to Rundle. Richard served our congregational on an interim basis in 2010/11 and produced an inspiring report on the life, ministry, and future of Rundle United, titled, “Rundle Memorial United Church:  A Jewel with a Future”.

Greeters & Readers List: A Greeters and Readers list for the second half of 2012 has been completed. Please find copies attached to this email and in the Lonsdale Lounge. Have a look to see when you are next scheduled, there there are any problems with upcoming dates please feel free to swap amongst yourselves and make a note on the sheets in Lonsdale Lounge.


New Summer Study Group:  “A Multi-Faith Society”: Join us for this 8-Week exploration in what might be termed “comparative religions”. Our Canadian cultural context is increasingly diverse. The same goes for religion. Perhaps we come to a deeper understanding and appreciation of our neighbors when we understand some of what they believe. This coming Wednesday, June 13th, from 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. we’ll be looking at Pentecostalism.  In future weeks we’ll examine Hindusim, Islam, Jainism, Buddhism, and New Age thought.

Property and Maintenance Committee Meeting: This Tuesday, June 12th, at 5 pm.

Sunday Worship, June 17th – 125 Anniversary Service at St. Paul’s Presbyterian: At its regular April meeting, the Board of Rundle U.C. decided to invite all our members and adherents to join with our St. Paul’s friends in celebration of their anniversary. Thus we will not be offering Sunday worship at Rundle June 17th.   Rather we will meet at St. Paul’s for their Sunday service, which begins at 10:30 a.m.

Next Board Meeting: Monday,  June 18th,  7 pm.

Ukrainian Male Choral Music: on Saturday, June 23, 2012 4 p.m. at St Paul’s Presbyterian Church. Free admission, everybody welcome!

Congregational Meeting: Sunday, June 24th. To consider the work and recommendations of the Strategic Directions Committee regarding possible future church building initiatives.
