Our Purpose and Mission Statement

Working to build God's dream. Help wanted!

We the people of Glen Rhodes United Church, are determined that our life together will be fully inclusive for people of all ages, races, genders, sexual orientations, differing abilities, ethnic origins and economic circumstances. Therefore, we hope that God will work in us so that we will be a sensitive congregation, willing to share our faith and gifts in language and worship, in the life and work of our church and wherever God calls us to do justice in the wider community, with compassion, fun and laughter

Pics from First Nations Sunday

What a great day we had on Sunday--the weather was perfect and our speaker was a joy. Here are some photos of the smudging Rev. Maggie McLeod led outside before the service. Inside, she spoke about the Truth and Reconciliation process, and invited us hear each other, especially painful stories, without fear.

We finished with bannock and jam at the back of the church. A beautiful time of sharing, learning and celebration.
