A Note to the Chinook Winds Region Newsletter List

on behalf of the Nominations Committee

Hello friends in Chinook Winds Region!

Please share this correspondence with your church newsletters and in your worship announcements.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our Church and at the Regional level we rely on the wisdom and God-given talents that committed United Church people bring to our committees and working groups.

Right now we have 3 areas with openings and seek applications by April 21. These opportunities are not limited to church leaders and staff. All United Church people are invited to discern and apply for roles they feel called to:

  • Financial Advisory Council
  • St. Andrew’s Regional Ministries
  • Ministry Support Working Group

The Nominations Committee looks forward to discerning who will serve in these roles. Thank you for considering yourself and sharing this invitation with others in your community and networks.

Please consider your gifts and skills, and those of your friends and colleagues. You might feel as though you are answering a spiritual call when you express interest in one of these positions; you might be encouraged by friends and colleagues who recognize that your abilities might be the gifts that are needed at this time. You may also know of someone who might have the gifts we are looking for. Please share this with them, and encourage them to consider if they are sensing a call to serve.

We recognize that diversity - in terms of racial and ethnic background, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, abilities, geographical location, vocation, or economic status - make us a stronger church, and we are committed to proactively addressing inequities and historic patterns of exclusion.

Nominations can be submitted HERE
