National Affirming Day – P.I.E. Day Sunday March 14th, 2021

Save the date Sunday March 14th, 2021 for our National Affirming Day celebration of P.I.E. Day!

Who doesn’t need something to celebrate these days? We surely do!

Let’s think about an Affirming pie. What would your Affirming pie taste like? What ingredients would you use? How do you want to fold in Public, Intentional, and Explicit (PIE) elements in your special recipe? This year we are going to celebrate with P.I.E. recipes created by you! It could be more traditional or it might have a twist in the ingredients … two cups of inclusion, a tablespoon of sparkle, a quarter cup of love … you get the idea! Now, think about how your faith community could continue to build your PIE, or how you are starting to cook something up.

Watch your email for ways to share YOUR recipe and more resources, event and service ideas! We will have a brand new video released by March that can be used as a resource for events, and our website is updated with worship service templates and promo materials/images FREE to use.

Due to COVID-19 all PIE events for 2021 will be planned for celebration online.

A Surprise Celebration for Pine River United Church in Ripley, Ontario

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!
