Confirmation and Reaffirmation Circles
Leader: Rev. Leigh Sinclair

Wednesday, February 14, 2018 (Ash Wednesday Service)

Five Wednesdays, February 21 through March 21, 2018 from 7:00–8:30pm

Offered each year, this five-week course is designed to be a brief survey of the foundational elements of church membership with opportunity for discussion and exploration of our religious background. You can read the topics we cover below.

In 2018 we will have an exciting program with two parallel circles. The two will share in opening and closing worship and have separate discussions in between. These circles will attend the Wednesday, February 14 at the Ash Wednesday service to mark the beginning of both Lent and your journeys of exploration. We will then meet the next 5 Wednesdays (February 21 to March 21) from 7:00–8:30pm.

The CONFIRMATION circle will be for people who seek to affirm their faith for the first time as adults (as they prepare for baptism and/or confirmation of membership). If you are new to Christian faith or to the United Church of Canada this is for you!

The REAFFIRMATION circle will be for people who have been active in a church family, Robertson-Wesley or another, who seek to explore their faith and publicly re-affirm their faith.

To register, please contact the Church office or contact Rev. Leigh directly.

Rituals to celebrate your baptisms, confirmations and/or Re-affirmations will take place on Sunday, March 18, 2018 or Sunday, May 13, 2018.

If you would be interested in being part of a circle of faith exploration but need a day-time or weekend course please let Rev. Leigh know and we can choose a time together!

Spritual Formation Pod

Sunday April 15, 2018

Our second conversation in 2018 will happen April 15, in the club room after church.

Come and let us explore together our ministry with flowers. We have changed how to provide sanctuary beautification and flowers to those who visit on our behalf. What aspects of this ministry give you joy and energy?

  • Are you seeking more or less flowers in our sanctuary?

  • Are you needing a reminder that you can honour special people and anniversaries by bringing flowers on Sunday mornings?

  • Do you enjoy delivering flowers to shut ins but need support to know who to send them to?

  • Come and let us listen to one another to hear the Spirit's hopes for this ministry.

    Spirited Saturdays: "Saying No to say Yes"

    Come and learn through listening and discussion how setting boundaries and saying no can lead us to better love of self and others. We will gather with coffee/tea/juice and our Bibles to explore how to make our "yes" count by using "no"! We will meet the third Saturday of each month, 9:30-11:30 AM (January to May, except April) in the Club Room (west door).

    Come to one or all of our workshops and bring friends and/or family! We will meet in the Club Room

    January 20- Exploration into boundaries in our relationships and how we understand God's call to use them!

    February 17-- Exploration of how we make decisions about life and death (faithful responses to dying, grief dynamics, preplanning funerals, caring for someone you love in palliative care).
