We have a surprise New Affirming Ministry Celebration coming up on Monday September 28th. Slowed for their vote by COVID -19, Pine River UC in Ripley ON had thought that they would be unable to hold their celebration before their current minister leaves on September 30th. However, having seen two online celebrations, they decided to celebrate on Monday evening September 28th at 7 pm EDT via Zoom. All are welcome, contact Pine River directly for the Zoom link.
Congratulations Pine River for all your dedicated work to the Affirming process and for adjusting to these challenging times. We are so thankful for your ministry!
Guest Preacher – Rev. Jeffery Dale

We are very excited to announce the hiring of our new Communications Coordinator! As you may recall, our previous Communications Coordinator Julie Graham moved on to her new work in Regional Ministry this winter serving Northern Spirit, Living Skies and Prairie to Pine Regional Councils.
Affirm United/s’affirmer Ensemble is pleased to welcome Michele Petick (she/her) to the team. Michele has been hired to work with Affirm United/s’affirmer Ensemble for 20 hours/week to support various aspects of communications such as social media, website management, newsletter writing and distribution, and working with the Affirming Ministry Program Coordination team. We are excited to see how Michele’s background in website development and design will help us better connect and engage with our many members and ministries across the country!
I am so pleased to join the Affirm United/S’affirmer Ensemble team! I look forward to listening and working with existing and exploring communities involved with the important mission of Affirming across Canada.
A very short bit about me, I have been in digital tech for over 30 years and involved in some form of employment or volunteer position with the United Church of Canada for over 20 years. My home base is Toronto. As trends and technology constantly evolve as do I, and am committed to learning new and old ideas each and every day I breathe. “Online” is my office, so please reach out anytime!
