What a busy day Sunday was! A capacity congregation filled Nestleton United Church for the final service. The service was one of celebration, mixed with sadness. It was a very moving service. Following church, a time of fellowship was had over a pot luck lunch. Members of the church will be welcomed at Blackstock United. There will be no church during July while the minister Rev. Jennifer is on holidays.
