Worship Services Online

SSUC’s church services will remain online until further notice .  The online Virtual Coffee Time gathering will begin at 10:00 hr each Sunday, for half an hour of conversation and fellowship. The link for this Coffee Time was sent in the News from SSUC email. 

LENT AND EASTER WORSHIP –The Worship Committee is delighted that Rev. Joe Ramsay will lead worship for eight Sundays–through the Season of Lent and Easter Sunday.  Rev. Ramsay is an ordained minister, who has served the United Church holding called positions and administrative roles for more than two decades.  Most recently he served on the ministry team at Edith Rankin United Church. He is an accomplished musician and song-writer with a personal and communal commitment to inclusivity and justice.  Rev. Ramsay will follow the Revised Common Lectionary scripture readings connecting them through the overall theme of “the challenge of walking faithfully the path of Jesus as participants in a culture of wealth and privilege.
