REMITS -Update

UCC’s REMITS are Here!

Our 42nd General Council are putting forth five remits to be considered by pastoral charges and presbyteries (three others are being considered by presbyteries only), and the approval of any or all of these five will bring about substantive, denomination-shaping changes to our Church’s Basis of Union. The five remits being voted on by pastoral charges are: (1) Three-Council Model, (2) Elimination of Transfer and Settlement, (3) Office of Vocation, (4) Funding a New Model, and (6) One Order of Ministry.

The five remits and comprehensive study guides are available on the 42nd General Council website at  GC42.ca/remits. We have also set up a communication board in Room “C” where you can get more information. Also, if you would like a paper copy of any or all of the remit material, please use the sign up sheet in Room C or contact the church office with your name and contact information, so we can make arrangements to get the information to you. For the sake of the environment, and in recognition of modern communications, the majority of the remit material will be online.  

Please contact Fred Harris at fredharris@yahoo.ca and/or Erika Winsor-Dunn, at   aaande@nf.sympatico.ca or phone to leave a message at (709)745-2578.
