Welcome to June and what a welcome this worship provided. The music was outstanding! Donalee’s messages tying together music in our lives and PRIDE Sunday was perfect. Under the direction of our new Music Co-ordinator, Kimberly Hanmer, our choir has grown to over 25 members and they sound spectacular. Rev Donalee kicked off the United Church of Canada’s first official PRIDE Sunday celebration.
