Affirming Ministry

On March 10, 2019 Okotoks United Church launched the Affirming process by serving pie after church to celebrate Affirming Connection's annual PIE Day! PIE stands for Public, Intentional, and Explicit which is how an Affirming Church/Community shows its support for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.  

We are currently returning to the Affirming Process as a congregation that will end with us coming together with a vote to decide if we will be an Affirming congregation. The process can take a while as we are all learning and embarking on this journey together. Should you have any questions/concerns please reach out to any of the members of The Affirming Ministry Team: Rev. Julia Kimmett, Janet Page, Betty Funk, Steve Hayward, Lee Spice, Jody Connors, Beth Loucks, and Joyce Loucks.
