The SVUC Visioning Group is encouraging the congregation to explore what it means to be compassionate as Christians in our world. The Board of SVUC has taken up the challenge by doing a book study of Karen Armstrong’s Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life. During a Congregational Meeting on Sunday, March 15, 2015, the congregation of SVUC voted unanimously to affirm the Charter for Compassion.
We have decided to also create working projects for the congregation to participate in and compassionately live out their lives. One of these projects is making sandwiches for the working poor and homeless people of Calgary. On October 5th, the congregation make 400 sandwiches for the Drop-In Centre. Our goal is to have sandwich making sessions each Sunday we celebrate Communion.
The next Sandwich making dates are:

The congregation of SVUC has been invited to serve breakfast for the clients of The Drop-In Centre on the following Sunday mornings. Please contact Vicki if you are able to volunteer.
We will meet at The Drop-In Centre at 6:45 am (SHARP!) and serve breakfast to 750-850 people by 8 am. Whether or not you attend worship service later that morning is up to you! People of all ages are welcome to volunteer. For those with limited mobility, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options for participating.
