Other events happening in March at York Pines United Church (YPUC) :

A Vision for York Pines : An invitation is extended to all members of the York Pines family to continue the discussion of a Vision for York Pines. Building upon the workshop offered by Jane Sullivan last May, you are invited to join in an informal, peer led conversation, about what you believe God is calling York Pines to be. It is a time to assess strengths, consider needs and examine our choices. We will pause for one hour over 4 Sundays during Lent (March 17, 24, 31 Apr 7) following coffee hour.

Start time will be 12:15. You are welcome to attend any or all of the conversations.
