This year, St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Coldwater will be hosting an ecumenical Maundy Thursday Communion service on Thursday, April 2nd at 7 pm preceded by a community supper at 6pm. Rev. Debbie will be participating in the service along with Rev. Courtney Morris-Crawford, Rev. Bright Yun and Rev. Ron Maclean. The supper will be a simple yet hearty meal of soup and bread before we all go upstairs for the service.
This intergenerational service will be a time to remember Jesus’ last supper with his friends in the upper room on the night before he died. It is an intimate and meaningful service that we hope all will participate in as we journey together through Holy Week. If you are willing to help out by making a large crock pot of soup to contribute to the meal, please let Rev. Debbie know by calling Unity United at 705-835-2903 or by filling out the form below.

Unity United Church may be housed in a building that is over 100 years old, but as a faith family, we are only five. That’s right—Unity is only 5. We’re not as old as we look! This is one of the reasons why church feels different here. We’re new kids on the block -or should I say- on the county road, so to speak.
But that doesn’t mean we don’t have any history.
We acknowledge the past. Who we are is a special collection of stories, experiences, passions and gifts. We are individuals -of course- but more importantly we are a Christ-centred community. God has called us to travel together for a very special reason, purpose and mission (see our mission statement on the home page). That’s more important than any one of us and impossible to achieve without all of us working as Unity. History is who we were and who we are.
That said, we are looking into the future. We continue to follow Jesus down the road—doing the new things He calls us to do.
This Sunday, Unity’s first minister, The Rev. Kerrie Perry will lead us as we celebrate our continuing journey as Unity United Church. Travel with us this Sunday and stay for fellowship and sandwiches afterwards! Service begins at 10:00! Hope to see you there! (Don’t forget to set your clock back an hour on Saturday night!)
This Sunday, we will join with Christians around the world as we share the sacrament of Communion. Check out what other churches in other countries have done for communion…..
