Sundays at Scarboro – October 18, 2020

Worship Start Time: 10:30am - Virtual Service
Theme: Mr. Rogers | Ritual

Log on to our online worship this Sunday as we begin a six week sermon series exploring the life lessons of Mr. Rogers. This week: the importance of ritual.

Our Thursday morning book group will resume online on October 26, reading Gavin Edwards' book Kindness and Wonder: Why Mister Rogers Matters Now More Than Ever. Contact Erin to let her know you are coming, or if you need an alternative day / time.

You are also invited to join a watch party - from the comfort of your own home - on Nov 1 at 1pm for the documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor? If that time doesn't work for you, feel free to watch the movie on your own schedule and then join us for an online discussion of the film at 2:20 pm.

Please consider registering here to attend the Calgary Alliance for the Common Good's Fall Assembly on Thursday, October 29 at 7pm. This is an opportunity to publicly bring forward and build tension around the Alliance’s joint focus on the city budget and Truth and Reconciliation. As a member organisation, we are hoping to commit 20 people to attend the Assembly on behalf of our community.
