Regional Council Gathering-June 2021

June 12 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Roll the Stone Away / Sewanienhia’karateniat Eh’ren Sewanenhnienha;wit / À nous de rouler la pierre

This is our theme for 2021: As the stone is rolled away from the tomb, beams of sunlight stream inward and a new life—a life beyond death—emerges. As we live through these strange times of struggle and change, can we emerge from the shadows with a fresh understanding about how to live and share that new life as members of the United Church in the wider world?
