Called to Be the Church 


Resource Kits for Called to Be the Church have been mailed to every congregation to go along with the Program Guides you received earlier this summer. With the Resource Kit, you have all the resources to carry out a congregational giving program, and we will be posting extra support materials on the Stewardship Toolkit as they become available – digital slides for each Sunday; bulletin inserts for each Sunday (black/white and colour versions); videos; and much more.
 
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please email us, or call 1-800-268-3781, ext. 2737. We are always glad to hear from you.
 


Giving Thanks


We’ve inspired. We’ve asked. And now it is time to thank people for their giving. Remember the principles of thanking are to make our thanks timely, specific, and sincere. Use these Mission & Service address labels on your letters of thanks, or give them as thank you gifts! To order your supply, email us.
 

 

Updated Resources Available


Mission & Service at a Glance 2015 is here and a print copy is on its way to every pastoral charge. It’s also available on the Stewardship Toolkit website. The 2014 Annual Report is also available on The United Church of Canada’s website and print copies are being sent in the October Infopac.
 


Help your Mission & Service Giving Program Come Alive!


These resources can be downloaded to help give a visual focus to your program. Use them in PowerPoint presentations, as posters, or…use your imagination!
