Weekly Wire for December 15, 2011

Due to technical problems there was no Video Teaser this week.  You’ll enjoy it that much more next week!
Photos from the “Invitational Retreat” held in late November in Cochrane, AB. 

The Fall 2011 publication of

"What’s Up…in the CWM” is online

and in the Mail!


I would encourage all of you who have access to the internet to view “What’s Up…in the CWM” online, and those of you who attend church regularly to read one of the copies and leave it or bring it back for the next person. Unless of course there is a photo of you, your child or another family member in the newsletter. Then by all means take it home and save it!


Photojournalists needed!

In January we’ll be publishing an online only edition of “What’s Up…in the CWM”. We’ll review Christmases in the CWM and we need you to volunteer to take photos of your congregation’s events. Talk to your pastor today and make sure your congregation is represented.




We’re having a Canadian National Conference on June 16th 2012!

Find out about the topics that will be discussed, get the tools to help you with your decision making process and find out which satellite location is nearest you. Apostle Susan Skoor will present you with a new thought each month until the conference begins so you can make informed decisions and make your voice heard.

The videos will be available in both .MP4 and .flv formats. You may have to wait a moment for the videos to load.

New Community of Christ Hymnal on Horizon

Listen to the music of a new Advent hymn that will be featured in the new Community of Christ Hymnal. The words and music to "Come and Bring Light" were written by Kevin Kell and the hymn is performed by the Center Place Singers. 
In anticipation of the new hymnal's availability in 2013, several "Joyful Noise" workshops will be held around the USA in 2012. The first one will be held at the Temple, February 11-12, 2012. Come and familiarize yourself with the new hymnal's musical styles, worship planning techniques, theological content, topics, and more.
