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 during September. On-line services will continue to be available even once we resume some in person gatherings (hopefully in October). 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 safely 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. 
 
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!
 
Spirit of the Living God, fall upon us all. Thank You for sharing so generously with us: warmth of sun, rest of night, the laughter of a friend, the peace that passes understanding. As fall activities resume, You are still with us. We need you now more than ever. Grant us patience, strength and flexibility as we explore new ways of being at school, and work and together as community. You call us to love one another as You love us, may we do so in ways that keep us safe and healthy. Amen.
