Children and Young Families

WORKING GROUP ON CHILDREN AND FAMILIES

 Two areas of focus:

  1. facilitating and enabling ways to connect those serving as leaders in these ministries, both online and face to face, to share resources and ideas
  2. future events to help connect families and youth around the diocese.

If you are interested in either of these ministry areas, you are invited to join the Facebook Group as per the link information below to begin connecting with those in the Sub-Group and others throughout the diocese. 

Should  you have questions or concerns about any of this information, please contact one of the Co-Chairs or Jayden Worth.

A Tea featuring scones, homemade strawberry jam and whipped cream will be served at the Church House, only on Saturday, July 14 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.  Cost is $6.00 per person, $3.00 for children 6 and under.  Strawberry Recipe Cookbooks and jars of strawberry jam will be available for purchase.

As usual, the church, grounds, and cemetery will be beautifully decorated with flowers.  Donations of potted plants, floral arrangements and cut flowers are needed.  If you can help provide these, please call Cathie Scatterty at (403) 938-7717.  Flowers should be brought to the church on Friday evening (July 13) around 6:00 pm.  Children are welcome to help place flowers on the graves in the cemetery.

The Christ Church Millarville Ladies Guild is responsible for organizing the Tea, decorating the church and grounds, and helping serve at the Tea.  They appreciate the help of the Millarville Horticultural Society and members of the local community.

View the flowers again at our Church Service on Sunday, July 15 at 11:30 am.

Everyone is invited to attend.

Looking for a way to deepen your understanding of the Christian faith and to enhance the connection between what you believe and how you live your daily life?  The Education for Ministry program combines independent study and weekly small group discussions to bring a basic grounding of theological education to Christian lay people.

EfM explores the content and origins of the Bible, follows Church history from its earliest days, and examines issues in Judeo-Christian theology.  Guided theological reflections help to connect our faith understanding with Scripture and Christian tradition, and translate this into the cultural context of today. 

Sessions run from September to May/June.  There are three groups currently meeting in Calgary.

For past students, there is also Mentor training being planned.

For more information, please contact Carol Tubman (ctubman@shaw.ca; (403) 277-9104) or Jennifer Solem (jsolem@shaw.ca; (403) 804-2768).

The Diocese will be holding a Pensions Study Day on Thursday, September 6, 2018 from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm.  All members of the General Synod Pension Plan (both clergy and lay) and their spouses are invited and encouraged to attend.  The Study Day will be held at Christ Church Calgary (3602 - 8th Street SW) and , although there is no charge to attend, participants are asked to register by contacting Christ Church (phone: (403) 243-4680; email: office@christchurchcalgary.org) prior to August 31 so that lunch arrangements can be made.

The Study Day will consist of two presentations.  The first one from 10:00 am until 12:00 noon will see Judy Robinson, our National Directory of Pensions talking (mostly) about the General Synod Pension Plan.  If time permits, other national church plans (disability, etc.) may also be discussed.  The second presentation from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm will have a representative from Service Canada talking about the Canada Pension Plan and the Old Age Security plan.
