Today Joy was the very first Kindness AUC recipient from Aylmer United Church. She received a banana loaf with cream cheese icing and our postcard. See attached photos!
Our wonderful Joy is such a caring, loving person. She has been an active part of our Church Council, UCW and various other key committees for many years. Her jams and now muffins are a welcome tasty treat at church and in the community.
For me personally Joy has been a great help and inspiration at all the church fundraisers I have organized in recent years. My favourite memory is always her in butterfly wings leading a procession of Pumpkin Walkers! ❤
We are so proud of you Joy, love you and thank you for all you do!
If you wish to recognize someone at Aylmer United Church for their kindness please send an email to this email address. I will add their name to the list. Once a week it will be posted in the Weekly Message.
One recipient per week (occasionally 2) will receive their choice of a banana loaf with cream cheese icing or a loaf of whole wheat bread.
Christianity began with a gathering of people, joining together to listen to the Word of God and to learn the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Now, it seems that many people consider themselves Christians - but not ones who congregate in the fellowship of Christ. They say they are “spiritual” and feel no need to share in a community of faith as their forefathers and foremothers no doubt did. I wonder where they go should they need a child baptized, to marry in a church building, or to have a funeral service in a church - well, “to a church, of course” they and you might well say!
I wonder though, as fewer and fewer people who say they are Christians attend and support their congregations of faith, will there be a church building and a fellowship for them to turn to? So many church buildings have already been turned into condos, homes, or are being used for other non-church purposes
Aylmer United Church is just one of many churches facing a bleak future as a congregation of faith, having old buildings and fewer and fewer people supporting the work of the church. There is a real possibility that churches as we know them may cease to exist in our lifetime!
What can you and I do about it? I want to hear your opinion. Please send me a message.
