Up-coming Events:

Many volunteers have worked hard these past two weeks to sort and reorganize the Thrift Shop. A sincere thank you to all who helped. At the beginning of this re-organization, Janet Kundert, the Thrift Shop co-ordinator’s mother passed away in Red Deer. Our thoughts and prayers are with her. Also Steve Stephens, a Thrift shop employee is recovering from a broken back and will be incapacitated for several more weeks. Again we extend our prayers to Steve.

The Thrift Shop will re-open on Tuesday April 9th.

Of note, Rev John Travis, a former long-time minister at Rundle passed away on Palm Sunday. His service is in Victoria on Monday April 8th.


Study group: Beginning Thursday April25 a study group for those who are interested.

H20 is a 10 week video experience designed to create a safe environment where people are comfortable considering the person of Jesus. Each video is a voyage of discovery, not a message or a sermon. It is both provoking and relational. Come to one or all and see if we can grow together.

April 25: Lonsdale lounge 7:00 pm.  All welcome.


EoH_poster_thumbnailJoin us for a screening of the award winning documentary “The Economics of Happiness” in conjunction with Ralph Connor Memorial United.

When: Friday, April 19th, 7:00 to 9:00 pm at Rundle United Church
Cost:  A small donation to cover the $100 screening charge would be appreciated

Both hard‐hitting and inspiring, ‘The Economics of Happiness’ demonstrates that millions of people across the world are already engaged in building a better world – that small scale initiatives are happening on a large scale. The film shows that countless initiatives are united around a common cause: rebuilding more democratic, human scale, ecological and local economies – the foundation of an ‘economics of happiness’.  Following the movie, you are invited to stay for a discussion about the movie.
