Online and in person at 10:30 a.m.
We have a new gizmo to make our live stream more stable and to help our music sound better. You can find our service on our YouTube channel starting at 10:20 AM. The title will be something like "Rothwell United Church Live Stream". After the service I will change the name to reflect the day's date.

From the Treasurer
As of April 30, our deficit for the year was $17,700. This is an improvement over March but, is still larger than we would expect at this time of year. At the same time, offerings of all kinds (loose, envelopes, PAR, Canada Helps, United Way) have declined more than projected.
Parking Lot We offer parking at $50 per month and ask for three months in advance. We take cash or e-transfer. If interested, you can email or call to set up an appointment with the church office to sign the contract and get your parking pass.
Music at Rothwell
The choir is on holiday for the summer but already planning for the fall and winter. They would love to have a few new voices. Practices are Thursday's during the school year at 6:30 p.m. at the church. If you would like to join, please contact our Music director, Tobi DuMoulin via the church office.
Hand chimes Thanks to Heather Gordon, our Handbell director, Rothwell was selected by the Ontario Guild of English Handbell Ringers for a Trillium Grant for the 2022-2023 year. At no cost, Rothwell will be able to loan a set of hand chimes, foam and music suitable for hand chimes. Included in the grant is access to a Clinician and participation in a virtual hand chime concert on March 4, 2023.
Handbells – Handbells will be restarting in the Fall after a summer break. Interested people can try the bells after church on a Sunday or come to a Wednesday night practice.
