Welcome to First United Church
God calls us to create a community of faith where all are welcome and encouraged to participate fully. No matter where you are from, when you were born, how you self-identify, whom you love, or what you believe. We are a community that encourages free inquiry and searching. We are intentional about creating a safe space where diversity (such as age, sexual orientation, gender identity, health, ability, race, socio-economic status or belief) is valued, even when it challenges us. We do this by living God’s welcome, seeking to love as Jesus Christ loves and laughing with the Spirit along the way.
Grace and peace to you all!  We continue to monitor local numbers as we resume in person worship. Our protocols meet or exceed the current public health measures.
Masking, distancing and sanitizing are required. Seating is spaced to well below 1/3 of our fire regulations capacity.  You are welcome to share a pew with your household, or designated household, but ask you to keep a safe distance from others.
 
You can still find worship videos on our Facebook page or You-tube channel and a text version on the “Prayer & Care” page of this site.
 
We are live-streaming to our Facebook page each Sunday at 10:30 am.   (https://www.facebook.com/firstunitedwetaskiwin) and  uploading to Youtube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7w_HkD-DFF-in9ZZ0Eq4Ug.  with links to both sites on our “Prayer & Care” page by 1 pm each Sunday.
 
As re-launch guidelines and restrictions continue to evolve, we want to ensure the utmost safety for the many partnerships in our community and the people who call First United home. 
 
 
God of windswept hills and starry nights, You are ever present. You bless all creation with goodness. Branches bow down with the fullness of Your abundance, fields yield and gardens grow.  Open our lives to recognize You in the tears of a child, the laughter of an elder, in the hush before sunrise and the tiredness that comes each night. Stir us God, as Your breath stirs the waters, that Your love might reach out through us in ever widening ripples. Increase our faith. Grace us with Your courage. Set our feet dancing with hope in the name of Christ who redeems us. Amen.
