3. This fall marks the 500th Annniversary of the Protestant Reformation - 500 years ago, Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses for Debate to the door of the castle church at Wittenburg, Germany and the Reformation began. Orchard Valley United Church will offer 4 sessions focussing on the Reformation. These will be informal and enjoyable, as well as (hopefully) informative, and will be based on several skits on the subject. This is what's being proposed:

1.     Martin Luther Comes to Kings County - a look at some of the events of the early part of the Reformation.

2.     So Close to God, So Far from Each Other - A discussion, from the perspective of Heaven, between Martin Luther, John Calvin and Pope Paul III, concerning what they believed.

3.     We Do Remember - A discussion with King James about the King James Version of the Bible.

4.     Christianity's Family Tree - (no skit) Looking at the various branches of Christianity, and how they split (and amalgamated). Specific attention to the various denominations represented in our Kings County ancestry.

These sessions will take place at Orchard Valley United Church, 130 Cornwallis Ave. New Minas, Wednesday afternoons, 3:30-5:00 pm, Sep. 27 to Oct.18. All are Welcome!


Cultivating Healthy Communities

In her community in Nicaragua, Sandra believed she was feeding her children wholesome, nutritious food. But the chips and soda that made up the bulk of their diets led to illness and delays in growth. Presbyterian World Service & Development supported community promoters are helping families like Sandra's improve their nutrition by discussing the benefits of locally grown, fresh produce and helping establish household gardens. Sandra now understands that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is important for a healthy future. Today, her children are energetic and healthy. For Sandra, this project is the beginning of a brighter future for her family and community. "Our mission is to share what we have learned so that our community will prosper with healthy and active families."
