Making a Joyful Noise

Church of St Paul Joins the United Church of Canada’s
Celebration of Its 90th Birthday

Bell at Church of St Paul, Barriere, BCThe members of the Church of St Paul are inviting the community to join us for cake and coffee on Wednesday morning, June 10th at 10:30 am.  We have a bell that sits in one of our front flower beds and although it no longer has a clapper we are going to ring it 90 times using a wood mallet.  Plans are not yet firm, but we are hoping to auction off the opportunity to ring the bell (five or ten rings each) with funds going to Nepal relief or the Mission & Service Fund.

The bell originally came from an old steam engine and was donated to Clearwater United Church by Stan and Betty Johnston.  When the Clearwater congregation gave up their building, it was moved to Barriere.  We are hoping that many of the Clearwater folks will come down for the celebration.  Barriere and Clearwater are the two points of the North Thompson Pastoral Charge.

Small doesn’t mean you can’t be part of the wonderful celebration!
