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! In the interests of our communities well-being, and in compliance with Alberta Health Services, we will continue to provide on-line worship. On-line services will continue to be available even once we resume some in person gatherings. 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. We are preparing for and looking forward to that time when we can welcome you back into the building.
 
You can find current worship experiences and resources on-line through the Prayer and Care page on this site or on our Facebook page. 
 
The previous month’s worship will be on a page with that name.
 
Thank you for your patience, your good humour and your ongoing commitment to God’s mission through First United Church and other community agencies. By following recommended protocols, and pulling together, we hope to move towards the time when we can be together again. Please keep those affected in your prayers.  Please be safe and take care of yourselves!
 
Heart’s Delight, this is a very different summer than we imagined, but we are grateful that we are still here to enjoy the warmth of sunshine, the smell of fresh cut grass and sounds of rain refreshing the earth. Thank you for reminding us that despite the forces beyond our control, the seasons continue their cycle, crops ripen and gardens grow, babies are born and people die. Be with us in the tears and laughter. Pour out Your Spirit upon us that we might live in the assurance that love and life can transform hatred and death. It is still your world, may we live in it with joy. Amen.
