What a wonderful All Saints service we had on Sunday.  Led by Rev. Dr. Jenny Stephens, it was a beautiful tribute to those who are saints among us.  Her message of creating a place of purpose, meaning, and belonging resonates with our journey towards becoming more relevant to each other and to the community around us.

Sunday was the culmination of a very busy weekend at Wesley.  Our dinner and a movie fundraiser on Friday evening was a huge success, raising in excess of $3,000 for the life and work of our church.  Saturday morning saw dozens of children coming into Ainslie Hall to decorate cupcakes as part of the market Harvest Festival, as well as an artisan market in our Apple Corps café.  Rick serenaded us with some spooky music on the organ and then encouraged some young virtuosos to try their hand at it.  There are some budding musicians, I think.

Some busy times are coming up as well.  After church this Sunday, Randy and UCM will be offering their first brunch of the year.  Please plan to stay if you are able.  It is always delicious and it will be a great way to cap off the Remembrance Day service.

On Sunday November 12, at 2:30 p.m., we will be hosting the covenanting service for our new minister, Rev. Keith Hagerman.  Rev. Debra McGill of Saint Luke’s United Church will be presiding with Rev.Paul Browning preaching.  It would be wonderful to see as many Wesley faces as possible to celebrate this.  We have waited a long time, and worked very  hard, to get this stage of our journey together.  Rev. Keith is doing an amazing job, and he and his family have become an integral part of our church life together.  Refreshments will be served after the service.  Our regular Sunday morning service at 10:30 a.m. will take place as well.

Stephanie has tickets ready for our Wesley Family Christmas Dinner on Sunday December 17 at 4:00 p.m.  Cost remains the same as last year; $10 for adults, chidren 12 and under are free.  Tickets can only  be purchased through the office, so that we have a record of the names and ages of all of the children who will be attending.  If you would like to contribute towards gifts for the children, please advise Stephanie and she will add it to your givings.  This is a great way to get into the Christmas spirit.

The next Soup and Share will be on Friday, November 17 at the home of Susan and Larry Martin.  This is a casual way to get to know one another better over a delicious bowl of soup.  If you are interested in attending, as numbers are limited, please speak to Doug Coghlin.

Our community outreach for November will be Nutrition for Learning.  Pat Robb mentioned this worthy organization in her message on October 15.  In Waterloo Region over 20,000 children and youth participate in this program in 142 schools.  There are over 2,500 volunteers delivering a nutritious breakfast every day.  Most needed items are: ·         Cheerios or other cereals ·         Nutrigrain bars ·         Granola bars ·         Ritz crackers ·         Goldfish crackers ·         Juice boxes ·         Rice cakes ·         Zip lock sandwich bags

Larry Nolan has a hospital bed available if someone needs it.  Larry can be contacted at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  Pick up would have to be coordinated.

And finally, do not forget that we turn our clocks back this weekend, so you will get an extra hour of sleep on Saturday night.  Hard to believe that it is already November.  Where did the summer and fall go?
