Summer Communion Service

Next Sunday, August 11th will be our summer communion service. Our June and August communion offering is designated for the Make Room In Your Heart Capital Campaign at Siloam Misson. Homelessness is a growing issue in our community. We need to expand and “make room” to better meet the growing needs of this vulnerable population until we end homelessness. Communion offering envelopes are found in your offering envelope box and will be available on the narthex and hallway tables.

Please remember the congregation and staff of Cloverdale United Church in St.
Andrew’s, MB in your prayers this week.

Soloist Erica Wiebe

This morning we welcome Erica Wiebe as guest soloist. Erica is currently a student in the Desautels Faculty of Music at the University of Manitoba who is heading into her fourth year. She is studying with Mel Braun and David Klassen with a focus on opera and oratorio. She resides in Winnipeg, but regularly performs across the province with various choirs and opera ensembles. She has performed in opera productions such as Suor Angelica, Cendrillon, Idomeneo, Louise, Ruddigore,
Yeomen of the Guard, and others. She regularly puts on house concerts featuring German lieder or English art song and participates in musical theatre performances of shows like Chicago, Pirates of Penzance, and Sister Act. She has sung in many notable choirs and groups such as Manitoba Underground Opera, the Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Winnipeg, Prairie Voices, the University of Manitoba Singers, Women’s Chorus, and Accent.
