What Is A Society Meeting?

A Society is the Methodist term for a fully organized congregation and its members. The Society meets as a whole group at least once a year to elect Board members and other team members, such as Finance and Property Team members.

Delegates are also elected at Society meetings to serve a specific term; delegates serve as the church representatives with the Conference (the denomination) and, in times of transition, lead the Pastoral Leadership Task Force.

Kingsview’s Annual Society Meeting will take place after the morning service on June 22nd. Everyone is welcome to attend, but only members may participate in voting.

If you have any questions about this process or want to know more about membership, please talk to Pastor Darrin or any of the Board members (Brent Brown, Heather Campbell, Sabrina Hinds, Jabin Carrasco, Sharon Howell, Vinola Pakkianathen) or Delegates (Tim Gonyou, Lois Tomc).

Q&A: How can I become a member at Kingsview Church?

It’s simple. The process starts with just three questions:

December 2012 Q&A: Where did Christmas carols come from?

Nothing says “It’s Christmas!” quite like hearing Christmas carols everywhere. So, when did Christmas carols become popular?

The tradition of singing songs at Christmas began in about the 4th century. These songs, however, were usually quite solemn and were written in monasteries (e.g. “Of the Father’s Love Begotten”).

It was not until the 15th and 16th centuries that joyful Christmas carols became popular and were written for everyday people to sing.

Today, we enjoy Christmas music from many different cultures and styles.
