Dear Friends,

Through the grace of God and the resiliency embedded in the church, we have made it to Advent! It has been a difficult and challenging year for all of us. We have had to make so many sacrifices, learn and unlearn so many things, and really dig deep in our faith. Yet God is good! God is faithful! God has not abandoned us! Indeed, God continues to call the church, the People of God, to refresh and renew ourselves, to seek that Star of Hope and continue to serve all of creation. God gives us all amazing gifts and companions along the that we can embrace life fully and completely...and move ahead fearlessly!

Your Region has been your partner all through this pandemic, and will continue well beyond. We are in this together! With your generous support, we have been able to provide support and encouragement to our pastors, guidance and solidarity with those on the path to ordination, and connection/collaboration with our mission coworkers. We continue to be arm in arm with all of our congregations, especially those who are experiencing hardships of all kinds at this time of year. We are helping new projects and innovative ministries get off the ground so that more people can experience the living love of God. We continue to connect with (and encourage you to connect with!) our ecumenical partners across Canada and the world. We are your prayer warriors. Your resource hub. Your partner in ministry - wherever God is calling you.

All of this work requires resources - human and financial. We are blessed with strong leaders in all three Areas, and God is raising up even more day by day. (Believe it or not there are the potential of FOUR new congregations/new ministries on the horizon here in Canada in the coming year!!) Please prayerfully make a donation this year to the Region as part of your Advent and Christmas celebrations. Donations can be made through your local congregation, directly to the Canadian Region itself (information below) or through Canada Helps. If you would like to make the donation as a gift to someone, we are happy to send a card on your behalf to them to let them know of your hope and commitment to Christ's love here on earth.

Thank you for your generous and faithful gifts! Together we work to bring more of God's peace, love, joy, hope, and Christ...into the world.
