Beginning celebrations for 100 years of the United Church of Canada

A momentous occasion is upon us! The United Church of Canada turns 100 on June 10, 2025. The Centennial Commemoration year launched with a kick-off worship service in Toronto on June 9, 2024. Witness the launch of a year-long celebration of deep spirituality, bold discipleship, and daring justice:

The worship service can be watched on YouTube right here.

What is it to be a pastor? -- with Samuel Vauvert Dansokho

A pastor leads weekly worship services, of course -- but what else do they do? Samuel, of Plymouth-Trinity United Church here in Sherbrooke, notes that those who have received the call live very full days.... There is much to be done!

Watch an interview with Samuel here! (En francais.)

Celebrating the baptism of a family

This week's column from Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Djacoba Tehindrazanarivelo, who oversees the United Church of Canada's Ministere en francais (MiF) program, tells of a family -- some whose members were baptized, some of whose members joined the United Church -- all in a backyard worship service.

Read it here (in French).

United in learning

Do you enjoy learning? Discovering new things? Or perhaps you’re feeling a bit tired? And you need something new? Here’s an option:

“United-in-Learning offers a variety of distance education opportunities for church leaders. Whether you're clergy or lay, whether you have years of experience under your belt, or you've just joined your first committee, we have ways to connect you with like-minded people across the country to help make your church more vibrant, exciting, and alive.”

You can find United-in-Learning here.

“Most of our programs use computer and telephone to connect people across the miles. It's a way to break down isolation in ministry, and share best practices from one end of the country to another. For most programs, all you'll need is a computer with Internet access, and a telephone.”

Call for nominations

The General Council Nominations Committee has launched a call for nominations for several vacancies.

People across the church are invited to express their interest, or nominate others who have the gifts to serve well in these leadership roles. The Nominations Committee welcomes hearing from anyone, and particularly encourages those from groups which have been traditionally marginalized in our church, including (but not limited to) youth and young adults, Indigenous and racialized members, those active in francophone ministry, and people who identify as disabled.

You can find United Church job and volunteer opportunities here. Check back regularly!

Items and belongings

In order to reduce clutter and confusion in the building and to ensure your belongings are returned to you (or at least are safe) please label all items you bring to church.

Lost and found: Have you misplaced something in the church? A Lost & Found box can be found in the church hall, right next to the elevator.

Bicycle Path

A reminder to please make sure your car does not cross the yellow lines outlining the bike path in the church parking lot.
