Remits are an important part of improving how we do God’s work (October 2016)
The next eight months will be a pivotal period in the life of The United Church of Canada. With the deadlines to vote on seven of the eight remits quickly approaching, we have a real opportunity to transform the church so it continues to play an important role in our society. Considering what is at stake, it is crucial that all pastoral charge boards/councils and presbyteries study the remit proposals and cast a vote. A wealth of background information is available online at GC42.ca/remits, including study guides, informational videos, webinar discussions, and answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs).
Please read this October 2016 reminder from Nora Sanders, General Secretary.
The Council of Glebe - St. James would especially request that members read about remit #1 as Council will need to vote on this and will inform Ottawa Presbytery before June 30, 2017.
