   as we are led in worship
   by Rev. Bruce Lungren.

All are welcome to a time of fellowship and refreshments  in the lower hall following the worship service. 
Sunday Worship Leaders: We are led in worship each Sunday by members of our congregation, and others in our community. This Sunday we look forward to being led in worship by Rev. Bruce Lungren, a missionary of the Apostolic Church of Pentecost of Canada. On Palm/Passion Sunday, March 25, our worship leader will be Rev. Éloi Gunn our Presbytery Supervisor. 
Choir Practice normally takes place on Saturdays, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 a.m, in the lower hall. All are welcome. 
On March 25, Elisa-Maude McConnell will speak about her medical mission with the Global Smile Foundation to El Salvadore during (or after) the service. 

A Good Friday Procession of the Cross, an ecumenical and bilingual service, will take place on March 30, starting at 6:30 p.m. at Chalmers-Wesley United Church and proceeding through the streets of Old Quebec to St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Notre-Dame Basilica and finishing at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity. Dramatic readings of the Passion according to Saint John will take place at each stop along the way. The ecumenical choir (composed of choristers of Chalmers-Wesley, Notre-Dame Basilica and the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity), will be led by music director Sandra Bender accompanied by organist Benjamin Waterhouse. 

The Annual Congregational Meeting will take place on Sunday, April 15, immediately following the worship service. All members of the congregation are welcome and encouraged to attend. Heads of committees are kindly requested to submit their reports to the church secretary as soon as possible before April 4. 
 Restoration of the Baptismal Font
We are happy to report that we have received several generous donations to help fund the restoration of the Baptismal Font. Thank you! But ... if you have note already made a donation, we still need your help. The total cost of the restoration work is estimated at $7,500. We hope to receive 70% of that amount (to be confirmed) from the Corporation du Patrimoine Religieux, but we still need to raise 30% of that amount ($2,250) ourselves. The font may look good from a distance, but up close you can see there are many gaps in the pillars of the pedestal, there are many chips in the base, and the basin leaks!!! 
If you have not done so already, please consider making a donation for this much-needed restoration work.

Happy Place Zumba Yoga Sculpt classes take place in the lower hall every second Saturday morning from 10 to 11 a.m. The next class will be on Saturday, March 10. For more information, contact Susa at 418-265-9164. 

Reverend Bruce Lungren hosts a prayer time in the sanctuary each Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m. You’re welcome to join him if you would like prayer for your job, marriage, family, emotional or physical healing, or if you'd prefer, simply come for a time of private prayer. Rev. Lungren is a missionary of the Apostolic Church of Pentecost of Canada, and a frequent guest worship leader at Chalmers-Wesley.
