An affirming church serving the community
Welcome – St. Paul’s United Church has opened its doors for over 165 years to those looking for open-minded exploration of spirituality and issues that matter to them. Worship Service is at 10:20 on Sunday at St. Paul’s on Main Street.
As we near the end of our end of fiscal year, at the AGM in February, the Nominations Committee, comprised of heads of Session, Stewards/Trustees, Ministry & Personnel & Chair of the Board are looking for individuals who are prepared to commit to 2 years of volunteer work and bringing their voice and energy to the good governance of our church family.
Perhaps you would consider working on a committee or wish to suggest someone who would. Or we may tap you on the shoulder and ask for your help.
Here are the committees you can join and a brief summary of their work.
Session – co-chairs
Elaine Mann & Juliet Sturney
In tandem with the minister, see to everything that pertains to Sunday worship & pastoral care
Stewards & Trustees – co-chairs Bob Rowe & Bryce Allen
Responsible for finances and proper operation of physical infrastructure
Support staff & relationships between congregation & staff
All the members of these committees are members of the Official Board which currently meets quarterly. While Stewards/Trustees meet six times a year, Session monthly and Ministry & Personnel on an as needed basis.
Our chair Dean Peters retires at the end of this fiscal year. Reverend King will serve as Acting Chair.
