A WELCOMING CONGREGATION is one that:
smiles and encourages laughter; is inclusive, authentic, and respects diversity; displays openness to choice and questioning; asks, listens, and invites; does not assume I know my way around; engages and cares for all ages; accepts ME for who I am; feels honest, open and safe for real conversations; helps me feel at home; has worship services that are authentic, powerful, and grip you with a feeling of the sacred; gives me a reason to be there; gets to know each person as an individual; knows who it is and is comfortable with itself; wants to know who I am and what I am about.
10:00 am, Sundays
St. John’s United Church
Grand Forks, BC
Our congregation recognizes that the “status quo” cannot continue successfully and we need leadership to help us to make the change. The minister will provide leadership for worship and spiritual development within the congregation, and work to expand the partnership and networking capacity of the congregation within the community.
