Thank you for your decision on joining us
|Membership requires both
Discipleship and love
Church membership is a public affirmation of someone’s public profession of faith in Christ, and Jesus has appointed
baptism as the means by which his followers publicly profess their faith. We can’t affirm the profession of someone who
hasn’t yet made that profession. Baptism is how you publicly identify yourself with Christ and with his people (Acts 2:38–41). It’s how you visibly signify that you are united to
Christ in his death, burial, and resurrection (Rom. 6:1–4). It’s how you are identified before the church and the world as one who belongs to the Triune God (Matt. 28:19).
God's elect people from every nation and tribe, scattered throughout the earth, all those who have been given the gift of faith, by God, to believe. Our local gathering, which is
organized in a way so as to function within the parameters given in the scriptures, often described as "the local church"
~ Romans 12:5. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body.
- Membership is one way to raise the flag of faith and to state before God and others that you are committed to being a part of this local body of believers.
- Membership is not simply an opportunity to say: "I’m a part of this organisation", but rather a scriptural expression of covenant connectedness to a church.
- Membership is a reflection of the organic community already existing in the body of Christ. Paul says we are a body
When an individual is baptized, he becomes a member of the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:13). Because he is united to Christ
and the other members of the body in this way, he is therefore qualified to become member of a local expression of that body. One who, by his own volition, has declared
allegiance, commitment, or submission to; or affiliation with a our assembly specifically and exclusively, and who has been accepted by our group based upon certain criteria.
Church membership is important because it helps define the clergy’s responsibility
How do I become a member
- If you have never been baptized, you will prepare for baptism.
- If you were baptized as an infant or young child and have not made a profession of faith and been confirmed, then you will prepare to reaffirm your baptism when you
take the membership vows.
- If you are a member of another the church where you get baptized as an adult, then you can be a member to the Unitarian Baptist Fellowship because you did your
profession of faith and was received as a member.
|Individual Membership 20.00$ per year Class "A"

that Sunday and the book group from 19:00 to 22:00 on Tuesday Night. These groups are
open to any member and their guests.
Sunday Morning Discussion Meeting is part of Small Group and the Open Minds Book
Group are a Sub Ministry of the Chaplaincy and it is a vital part of many Unitarian
congregations, people meet regularly to reflect on and discuss significant life topics.
At the discussion group we alternate with each member acting has host and moderator so
that everyone has an opportunity to select a topic for the meeting. The topic for discussion
is wide open and can range from politics ecology, religion, art, science, personal philosophy
and special events.
Meetings are held in members’ homes, usually in rotation, as many knows we moved from
Trois-Rivieres Quebec and we lost our huge apartment, we have a small one in far east
end of Gatineau now and we will be happy to welcome a group, the 340 Albert in Ottawa,
where we have our office, rent meeting space, a small meeting room for the day is $Please
see rates under, if we choose this option all need to share the cost.
Discussions range from current events, religious, philosophical, political musings and more. All
are welcome. The Book Club meets the third Tuesday of each month at 19:00. We notify
readers of the books that will be discussed in the Events/Meetings web page and by email's.
Anyone who reads the selected book or like to talk about is welcome.
Small groups are great places to get to know other people and to get to know yourself. Over
time, participants build deep connections with one another and with the congregation.
Whether the topic is, the conversation is respectful and caring and leads to greater
understanding. In each session, facilitated by the host or another member of the Group,
all participants have opportunity to share their perspectives, tell their stories, and listen
deeply. The time together is structured: Group meetings begin and end with centering
readings and often include a time of silence before the sharing begins. Many small groups
engage in annual service projects, putting their faith into action.
The EMMI Governance Meeting
Governance is our board assembly held by the Elders, is a method of church governance
typified by the rule of assemblies of elders. Each local church is governed by a body of
Its constitution of members are compose of at least one member of the clergy and lays under
the direction of a Bishop. At EMMI for the present it is Rev Marie Yvonne.
The Founder Commander (Rev. Eric Michel) can be present and can advise but he has no
The following are excerpts from our Constitution and Bylaws, explaining the responsibilities and
qualifications of our Elders:
Eric Michel Ministries Int'l shall be directed and administered by the Archbishop under the advisory of
the Corporation Board of Elders.
The Board of Elders shall consist of not less than three (3) nor more than twelve (12) Elders, including
the Chair (a Bishop).
The Elders shall advise in all matters pertaining to Eric Michel Ministries Int'l in its spiritual life and in the
ministry of its ordinances. They shall also:
A) Provide counsel and mutual assistance in the administration of the business and work of the church.
B) Serve without compensation, except for their actual expenses.
Candidates for the position of Elder shall be members with experiences and knowledge of an Unitarian
Candidates shall be voting members in good standing in the congregation and capable of efficiently
discharging the duties pertaining to their office.
Elder candidates shall be consistent in their attendance at the public services of the congregation.
They shall have a cooperative spirit and be active in ministry and service to the church and/or to the
Elders shall be selected for a term of three (3) years. An Elder may not serve more than two (2)
successive terms or 6 years. After a minimum of one (1) year absence, a person again may be eligible to
be a candidate.
Teachers, cleaners, lawyers, cooks, doctors, clerics, farmers, bookkeepers, clergymen and any other
vocation one can think of. That’s the professions from which ruling elders are drawn from for service
in EMMI Corporation.
The Board is the executive body of the EMMI. It derives its authority from the congregation. The
company’s activities and procedures are determined and guided by Articles of Association and
Standing Orders that set its parameters and scope for action. These documents are available upon
request from EMMI office. Committees operate in the Chapel but these derive their terms of
reference, budget and agency from the Board of Elders. All employees, including ministers,
volunteers, etc are contracted by the Board.
Up to 12 directors may be elected to serve on the board at any time. Board members are elected by
the congregation and serve for a period of three years, at which point they can serve an additional
three years before taking a break of at least one year. Additional Directors can be co-opted if the
board wishes. The Annual Report and Accounts are approved at the General Assembly.
The Board meets every month to discuss EMMI management and strategy. There are three officers
the Chair (Bishop), Treasurer and Secretary – elected by the Board of Elders members themselves.
Any member of EMMI may attend a Board meeting, but may only speak by arrangement or
permission. The Archbishop attends the Board meetings and participates freely in discussions but
is not a Director and may not vote. Minutes of the meeting are prepared and are available to any
member, and a summary is published
Because the group is very small, 12 or under, it is easy to move around for our meeting location and
same thing for our meeting date.
