An Invitation to
Whether it’s from the kitchen, or from the pulpit, at Scugog Island United Church we will never offer you something that we wouldn't accept for ourselves. We extend this invitation to live generously not simply for the benefit of the church, but because we believe it will benefit you as well. Every day people generously give their time, energy, and resources to support the things that matter to them. We see a Spirit of Generosity in the volunteers who make after school programs a possibility for children and youth, neighbours who run errands and provide support for seniors, those who serve on hall boards or community groups, anyone who contributes to a cause that helps others, and in everyone who regularly considers the needs of others. This Spirit of Generosity makes our community a better place and benefits all of us. In the church, we value the diversity of God given gifts that each person has and are grateful for all the different ways people use their gifts to help others. Our goal is to nurture a Spirit of Generosity like we see in Jesus who shared the abundance of God’s grace.
