The United Church Manual assigns specific responsibilities to the M&P Committee but our primary responsibility is to be "a consultative and supportive agency for the staff, and for members and adherents of the Congregation” (United Church Manual sec 244 c.1).
( UC Manual sec 244 c.1)
The 'Trinity of M&P' is Trust, Honesty, and Confidentiality! With this ‘Trinity’ M&P is a conduit for communication. We do not have decision making authority but report to and can recommend actions to Wilmot Council.
Please feel free to chat with your M&P committee members at any time. We each have valuable ministries to carry out as well as needing pastoral care from each other.
For more details re M&P responsibilities refer to archived Words from Wilmot June 2014 M&P article (Page 12).
"Communication leads to community, that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing."
Serving our staff and congregation, your M&P committee members are:
Chair - Judy Coates, 454-5631
Adjunct - Kirby Keyser & Graham Allen
