Upcoming Service

GAUC NEWS for July 29th, 2018

The rain couldn’t stop another really good turnout last Sunday!  The inside of our Church is surprisingly comfortable, 

so why not start your day at 9:30 in the Narthex for coffee, (and lemonade), cookies and conversation, followed by the worship service and Sunday School at 10am.  

 

MESSAGE FROM REV. TED

We all need a rest! Even Jesus and the disciples did, and that’s going to be our topic for this week. This will be my last Sunday until I get to go off and rest and recharge to be back up to full energy for what will be an exciting Fall. Please see the message below about helping the people of Haiti as I try to play 100 holes of golf in one day again in September. ( I’ll need to be rested up for that one!)

I will miss you, so it would be great to see you in person this Sunday, before heading off. 

 If you can’t make it Sunday morning, Blessings to you and your loved ones for a safe and happy August!   Rev. Ted

OUR LATEST PRAISE SONG:  Have I Told You Lately That I Love You    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKOkUWjC0JU

GAUC NEWS for July 22nd, 2018

What a great turnout on Sunday, for such a beautiful Summer’s day! It’s so nice to re-connect with folks who have been away for a bit.

Some of those who were here were surprised to learn during the sermon how  “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You” is not a romantic song at all, 

but rather a prayer that is almost completely Bible references!

It will be our praise song for the next two Sundays as well.  The inside of our Church is surprisingly comfortable, 

so why not start your day at 9:30 in the Narthex for coffee, (and lemonade), cookies and conversation, followed by the worship service and Sunday School at 10am.  

 

MESSAGE FROM REV. TED

I used to wonder why in the world a Minister would need a whole month of vacation… until I became one! It’s a 24/7 vocation that never gets shut off.

Not that I’m counting of course, but there are only two Sundays left until I get to go off and rest and recharge to be back up to full energy for the Fall.

It would be great to see you in person before August comes.  Thanks to those listed below who will be providing supply in August. 

Hope to see you Sunday!

GAUC NEWS for July 8th, 2018

So being good Canadians, we spent all Winter and Spring complaining how cold it was, so naturally when Summer rolls around… we complain about the heat!

Last Sunday was really hot outside, but inside our Church it was surprisingly comfortable, and this Sunday is supposed to be even more pleasant. So hopefully

you can start your day at 9:30 in the Narthex for coffee, (and lemonade), cookies and conversation, followed by the worship service and Sunday School at 10am.

 

 

MESSAGE FROM REV. TED

 I just read an article that said most people’s greatest regret is not becoming the person they were meant to be. A lot of times we might wonder just what God has planned for us. This Sunday, July 8th, we’ll talk about how to avoid experiencing these types of regrets. On Sunday July 15th we’re going to be Celebrating God,

and our Praise Song that day is going to be VERY surprising to most people! And in the sermon you’ll find out why we would sing THAT song in Church!

Hope to see you Sunday!

Sunday morning is a great time for a “Faith-Lift”! Remember to come at 9:30 for coffee, cookies and conversation, with Worship and SundaySchool at 10am.

MESSAGE FROM REV. TED

Our faith has to be one of the most valuable possessions we have. Let’s face it, life doesn’t always go the way we had hoped or planned, but with Jesus being so approachable for us, and with God’s help, nothing is impossible!  See you Sunday to find out more!

What a great time, weather and turnout for the Outdoor Service and Picnic last Sunday! Thanks again to the Choir and especially Sylvia Verdenhalven for organizing. This Sunday we’ll be celebrating Father’s Day, while acknowledging the conflicting emotions that can arise, and of course giving thanks to our Heavenly Father.

Do you remember when you were a kid and the Church Picnic (a..k.a. Sunday School Picnic) was one of the highlights of the year? Let’s not deny this experience to the younger generations.
