The congregation of Rivers United Church is pleased to welcome Rev. Margret Kristjansson into a part-time ministry with our Church. Rev. Margret was ordained in 1986. She has served at many pastoral charges including Austin-Sidney, Wawanesa, Hartney-Lauder, and Glenboro. Margret lives at Wawanesa where she trains miniature horses, offers driving lessons, and buys horses to train and sell. Her part-time work at Rivers United will include two services per month, administrative duties, support for the Christian Education program, and some pastoral care. Margret is filling a gap position until our congregation is successful in securing a permanent, half-time minister. Welcome Rev. Margret!

1. The Outreach Committee invites everyone to assist with purchasing School Supplies for children in need in Canada and around the world. The Mennonite Central Committee coordinates the sending of individual School Kits containing the same items for every student in a cloth bag. In Brandon, we drop off our supplies at Ten Thousand Villages, and they will pack them in bags and send them on. If you want to make some cloth bags, the pattern and size specifications can be found online. There is a donation box and the list of the items needed in the entry. So, this is your chance to shop for School Supplies again. Your gifts help!
2. BG Club is coming to Rivers. BG Club is a Christian-based alternative to Boy Scouts or Girl Guides that provides children with the opportunity to be immersed in Bible teaching, memorization, songs, badge work, games, crafts, special events, and more.
