How Do I Meet People?

Welcome to First United Church!
Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, however you share your gifts with others, we’d like to know you and discover how we can create new possibilities together!
Gathering for weekly worship and community helps us re-align with God’s purpose and strengthens us to live our response. Check us out Sunday mornings or stop by for fair trade refreshments during the week!
 

Regular worship offers us time to give thanks, to join with others in entering the mystery of God’s presence and how we are called to live in response to God’s love. People of all ages share in worship leadership. Children also have time for more age-specific worship and learning during Children’s Worship in the Godly Play Room. Join us for refreshments and conversation following worship.   Contact the office for more information on any of the following groups. (780) 352 2157 or email: uchurch@incentre.net We have a lively and enthusiastic music program: Choir rehearses at 9:30am before church on Sunday (Rehearsals resume Sept. 2018) There are also various musicians who offer their gifts as solo’s or small group ensembles.   Would you like to grow in your relationship to God and others? There are a variety of mid-week and study groups that meet during the year. * Youth Group meets monthly for fun and faith!
