Registration for Prairie to Pine Regional Meeting

now open!

Registration deadline is September 23, 2020

 

The moment you’ve been waiting for all summer (right?) is now here! Registration for the postponed meeting of our regional council is now open. If you are a delegate or plan to be a visitor, please use this registration link. There is no cost.

The meeting will take place on Zoom Wednesday, September 30, 6:30-9:00 PM and Wednesday, October 7, 6:45-9:00 PM. A separate, optional Zoom orientation and practice will be available. Details such as the Zoom link and agenda will be emailed to registrants directly, and the full workbook of documents will be publicly available on the website.

Many communities of faith experienced serious disruptions of their annual meetings because of spring COVID closures. In turn, this may have affected your ability to elect lay delegates to this meeting. If your ministry has not yet had a chance to choose your lay delegate(s), please do so as soon as possible.

The Regional Council co-chairs have issued a letter providing an update; Information on the Celebration of Ministries service, which has also been affected by COVID-related restrictions, will be coming soon.

Many thanks to members of the annual meeting planning committee, who moved with grace into planning a very different meeting. Together, we will make this work. Questions? Please email Cherry Abad at cabad@united-church.ca 

Prairie to Pine 2020 Annual Meeting:

We will gather ELECTRONICALLY:

September 30 & October 7, 2020 (evenings only)

 

Greetings everyone in P2P Region. Yes, the Annual Meeting is still going to happen!

Before the pandemic paused everything, we were to gather together for the P2P region annual meeting in Steinbach, MB for 3 days at the end of May. As you know that meeting, along with so many other events, was cancelled. But there are pieces of business that still need to be addressed by the full region membership.

The P2P Executive has set the dates for an electronic Annual Meeting:

Wednesday, Sept. 30 and Wednesday, Oct. 7, (evenings only)

This will be a 2-part electronic meeting, with both video and phone connections available. The details are still being worked out, and more information will be posted later. All voting members of P2P Region are asked to save the dates.

Who are the voting members?

  • All members of the order of ministry in the region
  • Lay members as elected by each community of faith, based on the same numbers by size of the community of faith as previously, (see C 1.2. of the Manual).

Please save September 30 and October 7 in your calendars. It will be good to gather and do the work of our church, even if it is from a distance.
