HamPack – April 2017

Welcome to our April HAMilton PACKage. Remember that registrations for Youth Forum and the program for children and young teens are due April 21! See posters below for more info! Please see our Conference Meeting page for details, including a draft agenda outline for the Conference meeting, and registration links for the Youth Forum and Children’s programs .

Information about Mission and Service totals for 2016 is now posted on our website, and includes several ways to tell the story: a summary review, graphs and charts, and a bulletin insert. Look for the heading United Church Mission and Service Fund on our Stewardship Resources page.

Touchstone, a journal serving the United Church, invites you to a symposium, God and Godly Consequences, June 1, 2017 at St. Andrew’s  United Church in Toronto, focusing on the doctrine of God and the implications of that doctrine (e.g., providence, theodicy, prayer). Who is this God of whom we speak? Is this God active in the world—and how? See our Opportunities page for more info.
