Mission & Service Spiritual Practice

The Mission & Service Spiritual Practice has arrived! Contact the Philanthropy Unit for a printed copy or download it from stewardshiptoolkit.ca. The Spiritual Practice is a multi-sensory way to learn about Mission & Service, through reflection, prayer and a pilgrimage spiral journey. 


Tell Us Why You Give! 

Over the past few years, we have been running a series of "Why I Give” stories in our stewardship resources, as well as in Mandate and the Observer. We would like to give you a chance to share your story. All you need to do is reflect on this question:

Why do you give to the Mission & Service of the church? 

Then simply tell your story in a few sentences and send it to us. If you have questions, call us at 1-800-268-3781, ext. 4029. 


Healing Pathway's Seeds of Hope Grant

In 2015 Healing Pathway received a Seeds of Hope grant to turn their dream into a self-sustaining ministry.

“We are profoundly grateful for the support of the United Church Foundation Seeds of Hope Grant.  It enabled Healing Pathway to make its transition from being a foundational program of Naramata Centre, to being an Incorporated Society accountable to BC Conference.”
