Dynamic Dunsford United Church Newsletter – January 13, 2021
Join! Learn, Share, Ask, Act.
Please accept this invitation to attend our meeting on January 14 at 7 p.m. to hear Kathleen Whyte, our Region liaison, pass along what we need to know about the new Search process within the United Church of Canada. Kathleen has been doing her homework and learning about Dunsford U.C.’s history and current situation. She will provide a realistic look at what our options are for continuing as a community of faith. She will want our thoughts and input on some items so that she can better discern how to guide us forward. This will be your opportunity to ask questions about the process and share your thoughts, hopes, dreams and concerns. To proceed with our search, WE NEED 5 OR 7 PEOPLE TO SIT ON THE SEARCH COMMITTEE and start to meet as soon as possible. Internet connection is not required to join the zoom meeting. You can connect with your telephone and take part in a meaningful way. Please use a phone with a long distance plan to avoid extra charges. Zoom meeting instructions are below along with the agenda.
