    Official Board Secretary Handbook

    Hi Folks! I've been note-taker for a year now for congregational and official board meetings at my local United Church and was never given any instruction in my role or how to record the minutes. Is there a booklet online somewhere? I haven't found one. Thanks!

    How long can a UCC use lay-preachers for?

    Hi! I was told our church could not use lay-ministry indefinitely even though we only have two services a month. How many years can we do this according to the United Church of Canada? Thanks!

    How was church today?

    Yes, married life is super busy. I talked with him and he doesn't like the fact that the guy is "adding to the problem" by having kids while he is without a home, food, medical care etc. This happens with non-refugees too.

    Bachelorette Ideas?

    Just a quick update. Sounds like in July we will go golfing then meet up at someone's house for food & fun. It'll be a dry event that's completely gluten-free so I'm happy. A Co-worker said "It will also be fun-free": ha ha.

    Bachelorette Ideas?

    Hi Everyone! Our wedding is almost 100 days away. :) Any suggestions for a bachelorette party? Alcoholic drinks and male body parts (real or otherwise) would not appeal to me for such an event. Thanks!

    Ghomeshi walks

    I listened to Q for years as that was the only station my radio could receive (this was before getting an IPhone). I always felt uneasy about him. I, too, am disappointed how this trial went.
