Harvest of Crafts Sale 2018 Success and Thanks!
I want to thank everyone in our congregation for your tremendous support of our main fundraising event for the UCW last Saturday! We couldn’t have had such a good day without all your help – whether you crafted, baked, made jam or jelly and decorated their containers, posted lawn signs, advertised, set up and took down tables and rooms, decorated, told all your friends and family about the sale and came and worked at it and shopped too! It all came together to create a great atmosphere of fun and solidarity in supporting our church and our local and international charities! So thank you one and all! A special thank you to all the menfolk who helped out too! We couldn’t have done this without you! Blessings,
Chair of Harvest of Crafts Sale

Sat. Feb. 24 – “Coldest Night of the Year” –
On Saturday February 24th Streetsville participated in The Coldest Night of the Year walk for the 6th straight year. We fielded a team of 15 walkers and raised over $3300! Proceeds were used to support The Dam in Mississauga, a Christian organization that Develops Assists and Mentors at-risk youth in our community. The team was pleased that the weather was moderate and a good time was had by all! Thanks to everyone for their support of this important event to give troubled youth a helping hand.
We extend our love and sympathy to the family of Peter Judd who passed away on Saturday November 4 at the age of 53. As part of our church family, our condolences go out to his wife Teresa and their sons Brock and Pierson.
Visitation and a Celebration of Life will take place at Streetsville United Church on Friday November 10, 2017. Visitation 12:30 – 1:45 pm and Service at 2:00 pm followed by a reception in the auditorium.

Chase the Chill 2018
Members of SUC and their friends have generously supported Chase the Chill for the past 2 winters and the plan is to continue this outreach project in January 2018. Scarves will be hung in suitable areas along Queen Street so that anyone who needs or likes a scarf will be welcome to take one free of charge and wrap themselves up in it!
Yarn is available for knitting or crocheting a scarf 6” to 8” in width and approximately 48” in length. Completed projects can be return to Streetsville United any time before January 24!
There are many creative ways to provide outreach into the community and to that end other opportunities will be considered in 2018.
We Care Kits
As its fall Outreach project, our church is supporting the We Care kits program run by Canadian Lutheran World Relief. Our program runs from November 5th to 26th.
Details of the We Care kits that we recommend are in a handout at church on Sunday Nov. 5 & 12 and kit bags are available in the Narthex.
We hope as many of you as possible will participate.
Streetsville United Church is very pleased to announce the arrival of our new Youth Ministry Leader!
Jeremy Hennessy began this new position with us on May 1, 2017. He holds a BA in Theology from Tynedale University College in Toronto and is excited about beginning his ministry with our SUC Youth.
We welcome both Jeremy and his wife Katie to our church family and look forward to a renewed and invigorated Youth Ministry. Initially, he will be focusing on our High School Youth Group, although he will occasionally be including our Junior Youth.
We ask God’s blessing on Jeremy’s ministry with our youth and our whole church family.
