Your Support is Needed
We're a very active congregation from worship to outreach. Even during this pandemic our ministry continues, albeit in a different form. From Online Worship, to supporting our local food bank, to individuals preparing and delivering meals to those in need, to telephone visits, we haven't stopped. Also we have been making use of grocery store gift cards for those in need. To do all this, we need your support.
Bridges to Hope is now accepting food donations from local churches. If you would like to donate food, you are welcome to drop the items off at First United and we’ll deliver them to Bridges to Hope for you.
Please place donations in the white food bin in the foyer. Remember the church office is open every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10 am to 1 pm.
Thank you for all your support!
This Week's Chuckle
My husband purchased a world map, rolled into a ball, and then gave me a dart and said, “Throw this and wherever it lands – that’s where I’m taking you when this pandemic ends.”
Turns out, we’re spending two weeks behind the fridge!!

Updated September 8, 2020
During the months of September through to May, First United publishes an online weekly newsletter on this website. For June, July and August we revert to monthly issues. It shows under News and Things in the main menu with the latest edition also feeding to several pages throughout the site. Since the covid-19 pandemic started we have also been issuing updates from Rev. Ian, scripture and prayers, links to our Online Worship and other relevant information and news. These updates have been (and will continue) on an ad hoc and as needed basis in between the News editions. Please note that at the very bottom of each publication, there is a place to leave comments and/or Follow us. If you select Follow, the newsletters automatically feed to your email address each time a new publication is issued.
First United also issues Constant Contact emails and provides information on our Facebook Page. If you haven't signed up either of those, we encourage you to do so as it is another convenient and timely way of keeping abreast of what is going on.
At First United Church you are part of our FAMILY
and you are always welcome
We Worship! We Dance! We Sing!
There's room for the lively, the quiet and the shy
There's room for all ages
There's room for laughter and for tears.
While during this time of COVID-19 we cannot physically greet you with smiles, a handshake or a hug,
we welcome you through the use of technology
Phone Calls, Emails, Online Worship, and Facebook!
You are welcome here!
How to Contact Us
If you are going through a pastoral emergency, we ask that you call or email the church office. The voice mail is checked daily as are the emails.
You can also contact us through this website (see Email form on this page) (please note: website emails are monitored periodically throughout each day)
Website email (use form on this page)
While the way pastoral visitation has changed, Rev. Ian continues to reach out through phone calls. You, too, can help. Please continue to be a neighbour. We have a number of individuals who live alone, individuals and couples who may feel isolated and reaching out with a phone call can make a huge difference.
