 For those who were wondering, we have heard from the General Council of the United Church of Canada, that all of the remits which were discussed at our Official Board and annual meetings were passed by a majority of congregations, pastoral charges, and Presbyteries across the country.  The next step?  They go back to General Council 2018 for final ratification.

The United Church is seeking to respond to many of the crises that are happening around the world, including famines in Africa and the Middle East, flooding in Southeast Asia, and hurricanes in the Caribbean.  This can be done by making a donation to the Mission and Service fund online on their secure donation page through; by phone with a credit card at 1-800-268-3781; or by mail with a cheque to:  The United Church of Canada, Philanthropy Unit –Emergency Response, 3250 Bloor St W., Suite 200, Toronto, ON M8X2Y4.  Please be sure to note “Emergency Response - Hurricane Irma on the face of your cheque.  The United Church has a number of relationships in the area and can work with its partners in the rescue and restoration efforts.
