Hills of Peace June Events!


Hills of Peace Registration Form



A unique opportunity for Young Adults to be a part of guiding the future of the Community of Christ in western Canada. Canada West Mission is investing in a year-long project involving individuals 18-30(ish). The purpose of the project is for young adults to come together, share your uncensored ideas, opinions, and dreams regarding your involvement and the future of the church here in Canada West Mission.  This is the perfect chance for young adults to determine and communicate their vision for the church, and be an active part in the direction it takes. A key part of this initiative will be creating and following through on goals and action steps into the future. We hope you will join us in building the Christ-like community you’ve dreamed of!

The first retreat is happening SOON! June 12-14, 2015 at the Hills of Peace Campgrounds. This is an important event to be present at, as we need to hear all different voices to create a unified plan that embodies all our diverse perspectives. At this first retreat we will also schedule a Fall/Winter retreat and establish a communication plan for dialogue between events.  Childcare will be provided at all retreats and there is financial assistance for those who could use some help getting there. If you make the time - we will make sure you get there! Don’t let childcare or money stop you from coming.

To RSVP to the June retreat, go to our Facebook Event:

For more information or any questions, please contact:  Rachelle Smalldon at or Caitlin Ball at
