"DISCERNING OUR FUTURE"
The Discernment Committee has met with all the standing committees of Trinity Clifton to find out "Where We are Now" and is ready to present these findings and to proceed to the next step of seeking congregational input as to "Where We Want To Go". Please plan, if at all possible, to attend one of these meetings:
Tuesday, August 4th from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Saturday, August 29th from 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon
Both workshops will be facilitated by Lori MacKay and Steve Dowling and supported by all Discernment Committee members. They will be lively and informative. We need to hear your voice! Please come and share what is important to you in your church.
Affirming Vision Statement (Approved by the congregation, May 24, 2015)
We, the Trinity-Clifton Christian family, believe that God has blessed us with diversity, including diversity in sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, race, age, ability and faith. We believe that Jesus challenged boundaries by reaching out to all people, welcoming and honouring all in their uniqueness.
We publicly declare our commitment to openness, growth, action and education, honouring diversity and challenging injustice in solidarity with those who experience discrimination.
We offer our resources and talents with open hands and hearts in love and service to all as we work for reconciliation and justice locally, regionally, and globally.
