Mission, Vision & Values
As individuals we are a diverse group. As a community, we are unified in holding central our commitment to the Way of Christ, which leads us to seek an equitable and just community; to care for the earth; to promote healing and reconciliation; to deepen our spiritual understanding through study, and by engaging the world; and to live joy-filled, generous lives, trusting in God’s abundance, love and grace.

Thanks to a grant from the ProVision Fund of the BC Conference of the United Church, Knox United Church members met in retreat format at the Yellow Cedar Lodge three times over a year’s period to revision and redevelop present and future ministry initiatives and priorities. Thanks to the leadership of Gloria Murdock-Smith at the first gathering, and the Rev. Victoria Andrews, Conference Minister for the northern presbyteries, at the second and third meetings, the result was a new “Mission, Vision & Values Statement“, and a “Behavioural Covenant/Holy Manners” adopted by the congregation at its Annual General Meeting in the Spring of 2017.
