The grace and peace of Christ be with you. We are living in unusual times and our United Church Creed reminds us that we don't need to be afraid because, "We are not alone; we live in God's world."
Following the directive of our wonderful Provincial Medical Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry and the recommendation of the Pacific Mountain Region, we will not meet for Sunday Services or other church meetings or events at any of our sites for the foreseeable future. AND We know that the church is not a building but the people of God. Thanks to technology and the Holy Spirit we can be the church in new ways. We will continue to worship, connect, pray and serve, but in different ways.
We are currently working on alternative ways to be the church including:
Please visit our Facebook page and web site regularly for updates.

Office Closed But Working
The office and ThirdSpace will be closed for the foreseeable future but we are all available by phone and email. Joanne Feuer and Beth Henderson will continue to be working as our very capable office administrators. Nikkie Ripka, our ThirdSpace Admin Assistant will also be on duty on her usual days (Wed - Fri), working from home. Further info coming soon!
Lets Stay Connected
Kathy Matusiak is organizing a phone tree so we can stay in touch, starting with folks who don't have email. Please let her know if you would like to help:
Our prayer ministry continues as usual and our congregational care visitors will continue to visit folks by phone. We are organizing volunteers to help with grocery shopping and prescription pickup and delivery. More information coming soon.
We will be staying connected through email more than once a week so please check it regularly and we are happy to hear from you by email as well. Please share with us how you are staying connected, helping each other and experiencing grace in the midst of these trying and unusual times!

Conversations will not be cancelled
Relationships will not be cancelled
The beauty of Spring will not be cancelled
Songs will not be cancelled
Reading will not be cancelled
Self-care will not be cancelled
Hope will not be cancelled
Add some of your own!

And may we lean into the love and goodness of God,
which will never be cancelled!
We look forward to being the church with you in this new way trusting in the power of God's loving Spirit that unites us.
