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!
Taking time for regular spiritual care and community helps us re-align with God’s purpose and strengthens us to live our response. 
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. We are exploring different ways to be a community of faith during the ever-changing health pandemic. 
We look forward to a time when we can share in worship face to face!
At this time all groups and rentals are post-poned. Please contact the office for more information on any of the following groups. (780) 352 2157 or email:
Normally, we have a lively and enthusiastic music program: Choir rehearses at 9:30am before church on Sunday (Sept. to Dec. and Jan. to May) 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! (Grades 7 – 12) Youth Group hosts the Pageant and an outreach project each year, leads worship, helps with suppers and events, as well as meeting for their own study and friendship.   * As One That Serves (AOTS) is a Christian men’s group that meets on the first Wednesday of each month for Supper, discussion and business in the lower hall. They host the Fall and Spring suppers, and other activities to support kids’ camperships!  * Take a Bible, take a break – meets weekly, Mondays 9:30 – 10:30 am in the church for conversation and study. No previous experience required! Come weekly or as often as you can! We’re currently studying “Stories Seldom Told”, which leads us into some of those lesser known Biblical stories. Messy Church gathers four times a year to create, celebrate and share a meal. Messy Holy Week meets Apr. 3 from 5 – 7 pm.  Lens on Lent is a film based discussion group. Pizza and a movie that draws us into conversation with lenten themes.  Wednesday nights 6 pm, movie starts at 6:30.  $5 for pizza, movie and conversation, or bring your own supper and watch for a toonie!  RSVP to Ruth by noon on Wednesday. Starts Feb. 26, 2020.   Storycircle’s meet three times a year in the Godly Play room – to come close to God, enter scriptures through story and deepen our faith practice and to strengthen our support of the children. Next gathering Feb. 29, 2020, 9 am to noon.   What the United Church Believes is a chance to be part of the unending conversation that is our journey with God. This course is offered in two – four week blocks and leads us through scripture, history, social justice and what it means to be part of the larger Church. If you’re thinking about membership, looking for a refresher or to deepen your Christian practice, this group could be for you!
