Sustainable Missional Ministries with Eric Law - NEW DATES - March - Nov. 2014
six-month action plan to become a missional and sustainable congregation in this innovative program
led by Eric Law, founder of the Kaleidoscope
Institute. Designed for congregation teams of up to six people, the program
offers a holistic vision for congregational vitality and support to live out
this vision in your context. Participants
will experience five in-person days with Eric Law at Emmanuel College and two, rtwo-hour on-line check-ins. They will be introduced to and trained in an
approach to congregational ministry which is missional, sustainable and rooted
in grace. Between sessions, each team will work with a trained facilitator to
practice and implement the learnings in their congregational context.
For more details please view our information page which includes a link to an application form.
An introductory workshop will be held on March 29 for interested congregations and individuals.

Pass It On! Walk and Run for United Church Camps - Oct. 19 2014
Church camps foster inclusive community and encourage every child to develop
self-esteem, independence, and a perspective on life’s big questions.
Help make these programs possible by joining Council's Pass it on! Walk and Run on October 19 2014 and raising funds for capital construction and maintenance at five United Church camps
in South Central Ontario: Camp Simpresca, Lake Scugog Camp, Sparrow Lake Camp,
Camp Big Canoe and Ryde Lake Camp. Participants have a choice of three distances: 5 k, half marathon, or marathon. The event is a lot of fun and you don't have to be a "runner"
to join us. Just pick your distance and we'll help you invite your network of
contacts to sponsor you. Anyone walking or running for the camps is eligible for
special charity entry rates and if you commit to raising over $200 for the
camps you can register for free! Contact Ali Hayes for information on how to register or make a pledge to support the walkers here. Pledges can be designated for the camp of
your choice or to support capital needs at all of the camps.
