All the people of the Regional Council and beyond are invited to gather Under the Same Rainbow in worship to celebrate Prairie to Pine becoming an Affirming ministry. Join us with your rainbows, noisemakers, and communion elements.
An Affirming ministry is a ministry formally designated as fully including and celebrating Two Spirit, trans, non-binary, intersex, bisexual, asexual, lesbian, and gay people, within the Affirm United/ S’affirmer Ensemble movement in the United Church of Canada. Our service will be a public worship. All welcome.
We will gather around an open table in all of our individuality, our many colours, languages, abilities, ages, gender identities and expressions, sexualities, and more, to share communion and celebrate Jesus’ love for us all. Together we will commit to the next stage of our Affirming journey together.
This celebration builds on the past and present work of many, including the Affirming presbyteries within the Affirming Conference of Manitoba and NW Ontario, and the many Affirming ministries and people within our Regional Council. More details and information on the link will be sent out soon. For now, please hold the date and discuss in your community of faith whether you wish to bring your entire worshipping community to this service. This Affirming celebration will be part of Prairie to Pine’s annual meeting, May 28-30, and all are welcome.
