Our annual Summer kick-off Event! Join us from 10 AM to 1 PM on the lawn at Glebe Road United Church. Proceeds from June Fest go to support our refugee sponsorship. We are working to provide a home and livelihood to a family composed of two adults and seven children. The family are Hazara – a persecuted ethnic and religious minority – and are currently stateless, living in fear for their safety.
Glebe Road United is working on sponsoring this family to come to Canada where they can live a life free of persecution and one where their daughters can go to school. Your participation in June Fest can help us bring them home.
Date: June 24, 2023
Time: 10 AM – 1PM
Location: 20 Glebe Road East
We’ll be on the lawn with games and activities: live music, a bake sale and a rummage sale! The Larkman Room will have tables set up for you to browse for books, clothes and small household items. If you have books, clothes or small household items in good used condition (or new!) please consider donating in advance of June Fest to the Church Office the week of June 19th. Due to space constraints, we cannot accept large items like furniture. You can drop off items in the church at the accessible parking lot entrance.
Fun and Games
On the lawn there will be games galore for the littles and not-so littles. At Glebe we welcome families, friend and neighbours to come by to sample all of June Fest.
Our church is a home and a safe space for anyone who is looking for one, where we can learn and play together in light of God. Come as you are and be loved as you are.
Are you a baker? Sweet or savoury? Help us make June Fest a success by bringing your most delicious recipe to our bake sale. The church will be open from 9:30 AM — 2:30 PM, Friday June 23rd for drop off, and Saturday June 24th at 9 AM. We have refrigerator space available for anything that needs to be kept cool. All proceeds from the bake sale support the refugee fund.
Have you got stuff? We want your stuff for our rummage sale! Books, gently used clothes, and small household items are all welcome donations. The church will be open to receive your stuff on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30 AM – 2:30 PM. Please pop by the church office in the Larkman Room the week of June 19th with anything you wish to donate. All proceeds from the sale of your stuff supports our refugee fund.
It’s a busy time of year! If you can’t make it out to June Fest but want to help us bring the Hazara family to their new home, you can donate directly to our refugee fund via our Canada Helps page. We are thankful for your gifts of time, talent and treasure which help us all to experience, celebrate and share God’s love. Please continue to give as you can, within your means.
We are blessed with many volunteers for this June Fest, but if you want to lend a hand, we want you! Email the church administration at firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and availability for Friday June 23rd and/or Friday June 24th, and we will find something awesome for you to do.
