New Canada West Mission Centre Recorder Appointed

Linda Klughart

Linda Klughart, of the Prince Albert Community of Christ, has accepted the appointment of Canada West Mission Centre Recorder. She comes to the position with many years of congregational experience as a Pastor plus professional experience that includes expertise with computers and software and data management.

We are still working on some training on the church’s data-base system (“Shelby”), so please do not inundate Linda with your backlog of Recorder-type requests just yet! We are hoping that Linda will be up and running at full capacity by mid-September. Watch for another announcement about forwarding information at that time. Linda may also be in touch with congregational Recorders between now and then to check on priorities for data entry that may have built up over the past few months.

If you have a question that just cannot wait, Linda may be contacted by email at:  Please “copy” any messages or requests to Mission Centre President Steve Thompson for his awareness until notified otherwise.

A note of appreciation: Canada West Mission Centre members will be aware that our previous Mission Centre Recorder, Sandy Woynarski, passed away in January of this year. Sandy is the only Recorder that Canada West has ever had, serving in the role since it was formed in 2004. Canada West Mission extends its sincere appreciation to Sandy’s husband, Stan, for her dedicated service in this role and for Stan’s assistance to Sandy when required. She did a great job, often invisibly and without recognition. Thank you, Stan, and our continued condolences on Sandy’s passing.

World Conference April 6-13, 2019


2019 World Conference Delegate Registration Fees
to be Reimbursed by Mission Centre!

This is for the information of any member considering being a delegate from the Canada West Centre to the 2019 World Conference, scheduled for April 6 to 13, 2019.

This will be a special conference. Besides the usual business of the church, there will be special celebrations in honour of the 25th anniversary of the dedication of the Community of Christ Temple in Independence, Missouri.

The Canada West Mission Centre will once again assist delegates with the registration fee for the conference. We do not know for sure what that fee will be. In 2016 it was $140 in US funds, which converted to an average of about $190 Canadian at that time.

Undertaking the responsibility of being a delegate to World Conference includes a significant financial commitment. Although a small portion of total expenses, the Canada West Mission Centre is pleased to be able to provide this assistance.

Please consider your availability to serve as a World Conference Delegate. Any baptized member in good standing is eligible. There is no age requirement and no priesthood requirement. Advise Debra Donohue of your interest as soon as possible, and certainly in advance of the Mission Conference scheduled for September 1 in Regina. Delegates will be elected at the Business Meeting of that conference.


We have 3 extra hotel rooms…

…that we will not need for Mission Conference.  If you want one or more of these rooms, please contact  I will be releasing these rooms on Sunday evening.
