CaW group (Community and Welcoming) is passionate about creating opportunities for “community building” and extending a welcome to newcomers. Our goals are to promote hospitality and community within the church family and to encourage everyone to welcome newcomers to the congregation.
Our KUC Photo Directory helps us get to know each other – putting names and faces together. Members of CaW gift newcomers to KUC with a copy of the directory.
Name tags are kept up to date by Merissa Trigg. We hope everyone remembers to wear theirs on Sundays as it is so helpful for new folk and also for those of us who cannot remember names easily.
The “Keeping In Touch” group has 18 dedicated KUC people phoning about 16 other folk every month so that everyone connected to Kamloops United church (hopefully that’s everyone) receives a friendly phone call once a month. The phoners will not be asking for money or volunteers but are calling to chat and help build the church community.
The goals of “CaW”, (promoting hospitality and community within the church family, and encouraging everyone to welcome newcomers) interlock with the congregation’s Ministry Plan of “Growing the Congregation” by focusing on being a welcoming congregation.
