The BUC Youth Group will be again participating in The Coldest Night of the Year, which is a family-friendly walk that raises money for Souls Harbour Bridgewater who serve the hungry, homeless, and hurting people in our community.

This year, our walk is going towards hiring a helping hand for Pastor Vicky, so she can be out in the community more, and do a bit more counselling. This walk will go to all things Bridgewater, affectionately known by our staff as "Little Souls". Help our little Mission grow some roots. We are the little Mission That Could.

Souls Harbour helps with:
1. Neighbours struggling with food security
We serve over 50,000 meals in Bridgewater, Halifax and now
Truro.

2. Neighbours overcoming addictions
Our Life Recovery Shelter in under construction right now

3. Neighbours with disabilities & mental illness
We're hiring a Life Coach to provide job readiness training

To donate to the BUC Youth Group Team, follow the link below or speak to Team Captain, Tracy Rafuse. Every little bit helps.
Thank you.

Heritage Day 2019 Honouree Maud Lewis

Maud Lewis

Maud Lewis, a Nova Scotia folk artist, was born Maud Kathleen Dowley to John and Agnes Dowley, in the town of Yarmouth, March 7, 1903. Maud lived with her husband Everett Lewis in a small house in Marshalltown Nova Scotia. Despite living with arthritis, and in poverty most of her life, her folk art paintings garnered much attraction and interest. Maud achieved national recognition in the mid 60’s, becoming known as one of Canada’s best-known folk artists. Her art and restored house are on display at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.

Maud deceased in July 1970, but her reputation as an inspiring folk artist continues to grow. Through newspaper, magazine articles, television documentaries, and more recently, a biographical drama film named “Maudie”, Maud Lewis has become well known internationally.

African Heritage Month
Feb
1
to Feb 28

African Heritage Month

Officially recognized in Canada since 1996, this is a time to honour the contributions and struggles of peoples of African descent. This could also be a time for congregations to make a commitment to becoming more culturally sensitive, racially inclusive, and justice-conscious. Union United in Montreal has been the home of a vibrant Black congregation for more than a century; Wilbur Howard became the church’s first Black Moderator in 1974. The leadership and participation of Black peoples and congregations continues today. But the commitment to becoming more culturally sensitive, racially inclusive, and justice-conscious continues year round.
