Your help is needed: As you are aware the wheelchair lift at the Dundas Street entrance no longer allows for safe reliable accessibility to our sanctuary or to the lower level and is in need of replacing. In order to ensure we remain in compliance with The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), we have received quotes to replace the lift and approached The Alan Cook Foundation who has generously agreed and approved a grant in the amount of $50,000.00 towards this project, that still leaves a balance of approximately $13,000.00 that SHUC must raise as per the Foundation’s grant agreement. This wheelchair lift replacement is scheduled to take place by the end of August this year and any and all donations to this project undertaking would be appreciated. Please mark your donation Wheelchair Lift Project. Thank you for your generosity and continued support.

Music Ministry News: Meet Bailey Pringle, soprano, a third year student at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia.

Updates from Worship:
Would you be interested in Greeting/ Ushering Sunday mornings? Would you like to participate in Sunday worship as a lay leader? If you answered ‘yes’ or even ‘maybe’ please contact a member of the worship committee or leave your contact information with the church office 519-753-1248… remember WE ARE THE CHURCH!

Recycling opportunities:
As you know the Fix-it Crew of Sydenham-Heritage collect papers to recycle to Hartmann Manufacturing to make egg cartons. The revenue from the sale of paper goes to help maintain the solar panels.
The Fix-it Crew would like to start a new fund raiser. It will begin collecting aluminum beverage cans. The money raised will go to funding the supplies for coffee hour after the church service. If this fund raiser is successful there will be no need to contribute to coffee and tea after church.
So save your aluminum tins, put them in clear plastic garbage bags and drop them off at church in the same area as you do the paper. Don’t forget to remove the pull-tabs because we have a drop off for those too!!

Remember along with newspapers & aluminum cans we are also recycling milk bags & pop pull-tabs – drop off containers for these items can be found outside the church office.
