The Emerging Church Small Group formed sixteen months ago, initially to study the book with the same title, written by United Church Minister, Rev. Bruce Sanguin. This book had been the focus of a previous study at KUC, led by Rev. Bruce Comrie. As our group progressed through the study we saw that the ideas in the book correspond well with the congregation’s suggested objectives, as Council Circle has prioritized them.
With the 2nd objective being “Connecting and Communicating with the Wider Community”, the Emerging Church Group focused on the Welcoming and Hospitality Ministry. The group has already been at work looking at and ordering signs required to assist visitors and guests to our building to find their way around. Next, we are considering other ways in which our Church can be a more welcoming place, with Sunday services being a logical starting place. The work continues.
