As part of our “Celebrations of Closing” at Woodham United Church, on Sunday, April 28 at 10:30 a.m. there will be a Special Service to celebrate the role of youth in the church. Various Sunday School programs from over the years, such as CGIT, Messenger And Explorer Groups, and a special Red Blanket reunion will be recognized.
Rev. Marion Jackson-Tyler will be the guest speaker for that service.
In the near future, on Friday, May 24 at 8 p.m. in the Woodham Church, there will be an evening of music, with a display and modeling of wedding dresses, bridesmaids’ dresses, and Mother of the Bride dresses from years past, along with skits and readings, and renewal of wedding vows conducted by Rev. Nancy Wetselaar. Everyone from the Woodham community and surrounding communities are invited to join with us, for an evening of fun and fellowship.
Our “Official Closing Service” for the church will be held on Sunday, June 16 at 10:30 a.m. Following the service in Woodham, there will be a catered luncheon at the Kirkton-Woodham Community Centre, in Kirkton, for reminiscing and comments from former clergy. Rev. Grant Dawson, a former minister, but now from Calgary, will be our guest speaker for this service.
Invitations for this service have been sent out to former members and their families, and to our friends from nearby churches, so if you would like to attend and did not receive an invitation please contact Dave Williams at the information given below.
The Woodham U.C. has served the Woodham community for over 142 years and it has been our desire to celebrate the faithfulness of this ministry during this last year of service.
Respectfully on behalf of the Woodham Congregation,
