Our Fundraising idea for 2020!
Last year, together we organized our first Candy Cane Traditions. We were so proud to report there were no ‘falling-outs’ and with the help of everyone in the church we raised over $8,300 at this event! In 2019 a total of $4700 was donated to the general operating fund at Grace. Another $2000 has been donated as well to the church operating fund to conclude our intentions. In addition, donations were made to local charities – Carpenter Hospice, The Elf Network, 5 Oaks, Food 4 Kids, and SOCKS and the Halton Fresh Food Program, totalling over $1600.
How can we fundraise and cope with COVID?
INVITATION FOR SUPPORT:
Instead of holding our traditional bazaar, we are inviting patrons and congregants to assess what you might have spent at Candy Cane Traditions: the church bake tables, vendors’ tables, the jar room, the silent auction, and the Candy Cane Café.
We ask you to consider making a donation to our Candy Cane Traditions account so that we may continue to support not just Grace United but the local charities as well. Donations can be e-transferred to Carol Boyle at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that Grace UCW does not have a charitable number and cannot issue receipts.
Who we are:
The women of Grace United Church gather for fellowship and activities such as movie night, guest speakers, craft nights or a potluck dinner evening.
Our regular meeting is on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. On a typical evening about 15 to 20 women attend, usually from 7:30 p.m. to about 9:30 p.m. at the church.
The next meeting of the UCW will be zoomed on Wednesday Oct. 28 at 7:00 pm. All women are invited to join us.
The purpose of United Church Women is:
To unite women of the congregation for the total mission of the church and to provide a medium through which we may express our loyalty and devotion to Jesus Christ in Christian witness, study, fellowship and service.
At both Nelson and Tansley United Churches, the UCW maintained a strong presence in worship and fundraising, St. Stephen’s Women’s groups refrained from a formal UCW connection.
When amalgamation was confirmed among the three congregations, the women from all our former churches had a lot of dialogue to determine the way forward for the women of Grace United Church Burlington. Eventually we agreed to become an official member of the wider UCW.
