SUNDAY WORSHIP will be in person this week, starting at 10:30 a.m. Please join us in the Sanctuary. We suggest that you print the bulletin at home and bring it with you. The responses will be displayed on the screen, but you may find it easier to follow along with the bulletin.
SERVICE RECORDING – If you are unable to join us on Sunday, you may find a recording of the service on the Delta UC Worship Facebook page. We will do our best to make the service available there.
A NEW ROOF FOR DELTA UC – The old roof was replaced last month. Our goal is to raise $13,000 over the next 15 months. Please consider making a contribution to our Roof Fund via CanadaHelps.

The City of Hamilton is situated upon the traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee, Mississaugas and Anishinaabe First Nations, governed by
the Dish With One Spoon Treaty of 1701, which was an agreement between the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabek to share and protect the resources around the Great Lakes.
The dish is the land and all its bounty… There is just one dish, and we are all responsible to replenish it, so it doesn’t become empty.
Likewise, there is just one spoon, so that we each take what we need and then pass the spoon to the next person.
And it’s a spoon, not a knife, because we need to share and resolve our conflicts in a non-violent manner.
In 1764, the Treaty was extended to settlers as part of the Treaty of Niagara, and to this day we are all Treaty People living on Treaty Land.
We have a responsibility to understand the Treaty and to make sure everyone shares equally in our common wealth.
Hamilton is home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island (North America) and we recognize that we must do more
to learn about the rich history of this land so we can better understand our roles as residents, neighbours, partners and stewards.
