Help shape the United Church’s Future
The 42nd General Council made major decisions to transform the structure of The United Church of Canada. These decisions do not take effect unless the broader church approves through the “remit” process. The eight remits, with background information about them, are now available at GC42.ca/remits. We need to hear from pastoral charges on five of these proposals, and from presbyteries on all eight. Visitors to GC42.ca/remits will find my introduction to the remits, along with links to comprehensive study guides for each, and information about the voting process and timing. By spring, information about webinars and video presentations will also be available there. Please read the material online, then send us your pastoral charge or presbytery’s decision on the paper ballots being mailed out in the next week. Church members at any level can email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yours in Christ,
General Secretary, General Council
The United Church of Canada
