Here are your weekly announcements. We are becoming a very busy church with lots of activities coming up so be sure to read through the attached “announcements” file.

Of special interest is our church membership in Right Now Media; a video resource for continuation of your studies.  You can learn more by clicking here.

Secondly, we have commenced our Invest in Your Faith campaign, which you can read more about by clicking here.  Special offering envelopes are available at the church.

Thirdly, as announced from the pulpit last Sunday, longtime Unionville resident and church member, Noreen Bauer, passed away last Friday. Rev. Karl Burden will lead a celebration of life service at Chapel Ridge Funeral Home on Friday at 1 p.m.

Fourthly, this Sunday is World Communion Sunday and Rev. Karl Burden will lead the service for us with Mark Cullen delivering the sermon. It promises to be a great service so I do hope many of you will join us!

News for the Week of September 18, 2016

Here are your weekly announcements to keep you up to date on what’s happening at Central!

A couple of important notes:
1. Tickets will be available again on Sunday for the Steve Bell concert on October 20th. We expect this event to be a sell-out so be sure to get yours early. Cost is $15 each.

2. It was announced in church last week that the City of Markham are hosting a celebration for Olympic medalist Andre de Grasse at the Pan Am Centre on Sunday, September 18th. This event will include a procession down Main Street Unionville which will begin at 12 noon (from the Fred Varley Art Gallery at Carlton & Main) so should not impact access to parking at the church that morning. (You may however need to drive south on Main when leaving church on Sunday.)

If you are interested in participating in this event after church, here are details: http://www.markham.ca/wps/portal/Markham/RecreationCulture/DiscoverMarkham/EventCalendar/CommunityEvents/20160918_rio-homecoming

News for the Week of September 11, 2016

Although you’d never know it by the weather, our summer vacation time is over and September has arrived when our lives resume some of their regular routines. We hope that you have enjoyed a relaxing few months and look forward to seeing many of you again on Sunday morning.

Here are your weekly announcements. Please have a look and join in on many of Central’s activities. This Sunday, September 11th is Rally Day and we will celebrate 10 o’clock worship as usual with an indoor service and then move outside (weather permitting) for our traditional hot dog lunch and corn roast. Feel free to bring your lawn chair.

A couple of other news items to note:

1. Tickets are available for the Steve Bell concert and we encourage you to buy them early as space is limited. There will be a “ticket table” on Sunday during the lunch so be sure to bring cash/cheque to make your purchase.
2. Sadly, we need to share the news of the death of Mark Williams, son of Doreen Williams and brother to Ruth Harvilla. (Both Doreen and Ruth are regular attenders at our worship services.) On behalf of Central, I extend our most sincere sympathy to this family. Rev. Jim Clubine will lead a service tomorrow at Chapel Ridge Funeral Home. Here are details:

Williams , Mark David Passed away peacefully at Mackenzie Health on Tuesday, September 6th, 2016 at the age of 61 . He is survived by his loving wife Carol, son Mark Jr., father Ken, mother Doreen, sister Ruth, and two nephews Greg and Luc. Mark served with the Toronto Police Services for 31 years. A Celebration of Life will take place at Chapel Ridge Funeral Home 8911 Woodbine Avenue MARKHAM, ON L3R 5G1 on Friday, September 9th, 2016 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Online condolences may be made at www.chapelridgefh.com
