Upcoming Events

Faith in Action Online Workshop

*FOR WESTERN CANADA CHURCHES*

Thursday, February 18, 2021, 7-8:30pm PST (10-11:30pm EST) 

When you speak out, you reflect the biblical call to work towards a just world where structures and institutions give all of creation the opportunity to thrive! Communicating with elected officials to advocate for just and compassionate measures during the pandemic can bring about long-term changes to unjust systems.

This workshop, led by Cindy Stover of the CRC Centre for Public Dialogue, will help you learn how to navigate the political system to have your voice heard by local, provincial, and national leaders.

"I would like to see this training happen more often so that people can know and understand their rights and where to start from."

Welcome to the Neighbo(u)rhood

What if this year could bring new opportunities to learn and practice new ways of being church?

This January and February join World Renew for a series of six (6) discussions led by leaders and churches using asset based community development. Together we will explore ways churches can be better neighbo(u)rs and move from doing things for community to working with community.

The series runs Thursdays at 7:30pm Eastern.

Attend one; attend them all! When you sign up you'll receive the recordings and notes in case you've missed one or want to share it with others!

Starts Thursday, January 7, 2021

Stewardship Book Study

Tuesdays, January 26 – February 23, 2021

7-8:30pm (Mountain Time) 

Are you interested in learning more about what stewardship really means - beyond just money in the offering plate?

We'll be using this book: https://library.crcna.org/resource/what-do-i-owe.

"I was part of the 5-week Stewardship Study, based on the book 'What Do I Owe'. I learned that stewardship is a lifestyle. I now have lots of ideas to take back to my congregation; in particular, starting a stewardship committee is a great idea to help disseminate the information. The book was excellent and so was this 5-week study!" - Kathy, Stewardship Study participant

To sign up, email Karla @ kwinham@crcna.org today!
