West Broadway Community Ministry

This week we hold in our thoughts and prayers, the congregation and staff of Young United Church. Summer is here. But poverty doesnt take a holiday. The cupboards at West Broadway Community Ministry are very low on staples. Please help us out if you can. We need canned meats, canned soup, Kraft dinner, peanut butter, canned fruit and vegetables, pork and beans and breakfast cereal. We are open weekdays from 9-5 except Tuesdays. We are at 222 Furby Street.

  • Office admin note: Summer is especially hard on families who rely on school breakfast and lunch programs for their children. Please remember these families on your next shopping trip.

Communion offerings

The Communion offerings given today will go to the Manitoba Interfaith Immigration Council, which supports the refugees coming across the borders at Emerson through the Welcome Place program. Manitoba has recently seen an increase in the arrivals of people undertaking dangerous and long journeys to find peace and safety. This fund is intended to provide direct aid to those arriving in Emerson, Manitoba. It will be used to provide basic necessities upon arrival: food, shelter, warm clothes, etc. Further information about the Manitoba Interfaith Immigration Council can be found here. Communion envelopes may be found on the hall or narthex tables and in your offering envelope box.

‘The Land of Lakes’ Choirboys

Doing Extraordinary Things

Wednesday, 14 June 2017, 7:30 pm
Westminster United Church is presenting ‘The Land of Lakes’ Choirboys / Freewill offering.

The Land of Lakes Choirboys, celebrating its 41st Season, develops fine young gentlemen through the gift of music. We pride ourselves on our motto of “Music, Respect and Honor,” teaching boys responsibility and independence, musical skill and self-discipline, manners and appropriate behavior. We bring boys together to celebrate the gift of music while teaching them how to work as a team and how to become gentlemen. Our music education includes music theory, sight-singing, ear training, harmonization, rhythm and much more. The choirboys’ eyes are opened to the profound effect music can have in their lives and the lives of their audiences around the world.
