MODELS OF MINISTRY RESOURCES

Hi there,

The planning committee for the Models of Ministry Event promised to share some of the resources we used this past weekend. Well, below are a couple of items from my workshop, "Sharing Resources." As well, for those of you who attended that workshop, there were also two hard copy handouts. If you have trouble opening the documents, let me know, and I will send in a different format.  In the meantime, in case you haven't had a chance to do so yet, please fill out our Evaluation Survey. Just click here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/P5NTHLT

Thanks again for your participation, and for your leadership.

STELLA'S CIRCLE CHRISTMAS WISH LIST

Dear Friends,

It is that time of year when we all start planning for our Christmas activities. Here at Stella’s Circle we are busy planning and preparing for the Christmas Season to ensure that our Participants have an enjoyable Holiday.

We are seeking the assistance of the various United Church Groups throughout the Newfoundland and Labrador Conference again this year through the appeal of our Annual Christmas Wish List. We appreciate your help in forwarding the attached letter and wish list to your United Church Women & Men’s Groups, Outreach and Christian Education Committees, Boards, etc.

Through the support of the United Church Congregations and its Church Groups, each year we are able to provide a Special Christmas to those who are part of the Stella’s Circle Community. For this we are grateful and very appreciative.

On behalf of Stella’s Circle, we wish you many blessings for the upcoming Christmas Season and the New year.

STELLA'S CIRCLE SUNDAY

Stella Circle’s Sunday October 19 or a Sunday of your choice.

A time to worship God and celebrate the goodness of our United Church outreach ministry.

One participant said this: I truly see it as a circle – there are so many different departments, they are there for you always, it’s like 100 people with 1 hearts. I would have nothing if it wasn’t for Stella’s Circle. (Participant).

General Secretaries Weekly Letter

Dear Friends;

This is the World Council of Churches (WCC) Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

It’s quite a mouthful, but I always love the idea of joining in prayer with people all over the world. (Or at least in the northern hemisphere. I note from the WCC website that the southern hemisphere does it during Pentecost. I’m not sure what that says about unity, except that it is something we Christians continue to work toward.)
