Squamish United Church: Who We Are
We are a dedicated group of people with a desire to share God’s grace and love within the community in which we live, work, play and worship.
Our Mission Statement is “to be an inclusive community serving God’s world.” At Squamish United church we are discovering ways to welcome while we seek to minister to the spiritual needs of the community. As a church our desire is to provide leadership and a Christian presence that serves both the congregation and the wider community. This vision and mission has created within our congregation a desire to upgrade our facilities that we might better serve the church and the community of Squamish. And so currently we have a very capable Facilities Development committee looking creatively and realistically for solutions that will serve the future needs of the congregation and community.
Our Sunday worship service (10 am) is joyful with uplifting music. It is our desire to have worship that engages the participation of adults and children of all ages, we encourage family and youth involvement. We have a Sunday School program for young children available weekly during our Sunday morning worship service. We conclude our worship service with coffee, refreshments and conversation. Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of the month.
The church board is the organizing government of the church. The board establishes policy, over see’s finances and ensures the church runs smoothly while seeking to maintain spiritual health.
