Greatness, Education, Training - Goals, Outreach, Discipleship


Please join us in welcoming our 2016/17 Get God participant Lisa Wingfield from Meadow Ridge BC. Lisa has been attending church in Meadow Ridge for the past seven years and was baptized in September of last year.

Lisa is looking forward to learning new skills that will help her become a leader in the Meadow Ridge congregation.

One of her teachers, Darrell Belrose, has inspired her to bring back the 'Flow Weekends' as a spiritual and outreach opportunity. Please keep Lisa in your prayers as she embarks on this year long project to better herself for the benefit of her congregation.

From all of us in the Canada West Mission Centre, welcome aboard Lisa!



Doctrine and Covenants

Now Includes Section 165


We're excited to announce that the Doctrine and Covenants e-book for Amazon devices and apps has been updated to include Section 165. This new section was approved by the 2016 World Conference of Community of Christ. 
If you have previously purchased the entire e-book, a standalone version of
Section 165 is also available. 

Here is the  link for “Community of Christ in Canada for ” to make purchases and have up to 8.5% returned to the Canadian church.


Mission Conference

Supports Human Rights!

A big “Thank you” goes out to all those at the September 2016 CWM Mission Conference who helped support the Amnesty International actions. There were 7 pre-printed letters sent by our youth, who drew encouraging pictures on them!  As well, two petitions received 29 signatures.   Such actions can provide hope and sometimes release for those unfairly jailed, tortured or disappeared!

In addition another big thank you goes to the youth who helped “bug” the adults in Rod’s Sunday session!

Thanks,  Rod

New Worship Planning Resources

Again this year, Worship Resources is a two-book set.
Worship Resources
This book contains suggestions for worship planning for Advent 2016 up to Advent 2017. Weekly worship outlines include Community of Christ worship themes, lectionary-based scriptures, ways to engage all ages, recommended hymns from Community of Christ Sings, drama scripts and responsive readings, special prayers, focus moments, worship settings, and more.
Sermon & Class Helps
This book contains sermon and class helps based on focus scriptures listed in the Revised Common Lectionary for Sundays and special liturgical days with emphasis on the New Testament, particularly on the Gospel according to Matthew.
Each sermon help includes Exploring the Scripture, an exegesis of the text including critical interpretation of the context, people, and events described in the featured scripture passage. Sections called Central Ideas and Questions for the Speaker contain suggestions for a sermon thesis and questions to help the preacher frame the ideas.
Order online today at Herald House.

With the Community of Christ app, you can read daily spiritual devotions, watch inspiring videos, stay in touch with mission happening around the world, and much more.
