Confirmands and Mentors
The Affirming Ministries Program is a network of United Church congregations and ministries that declare themselves to be fully inclusive of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. Before declaring themselves to be Affirming, local congregations, colleges, church courts, and other ministries study issues of sexual orientation and gender identity; make a statement of welcome; and commit themselves to work for justice and inclusion within their congregation, the wider church, and their community. The program was launched in 1992. The United Church officially endorsed the program in 2000 and encouraged its ministries to participate. Grace United Church is now exploring this program. To learn more, please follow our blog Affirm Grace.
Growth & Giving Capital Campaign
June 2016 Update
Growth & Giving Update - We acknowledge all who have supported the campaign through special gifts, offering donations and events. Total donations received to date as of June 12 are $96,500. Many people enjoyed the Valentines Dinner ($730 net profit) & Pasta Fest ($1480 net profit). Total outlay of expenses for projects and special events has been $30,166. Friendship Room improvements were completed in February. The west gym door was modified in May as part of the accessibility project. Sanctuary lighting has been purchased and we are waiting for installation. We are planning for additional accessibility improvements with priority being given to completing the main entrance ramp and modifying the family washroom. Partial funding for additional accessibility projects may be available through a federal grant which will be filed in July. Priorities for sections of the roof replacement are in development and we anticipate some roofing work this year. Other projects (rooms 4 and 10 , gym floor) are still in scope development. The Growth and Giving Committee is very grateful for the generosity and support of the congregation and look forward to the successful completion of our projects to grow Grace's vision as an inclusive, intergenerational and community partner church.
