Current Events

The mission of Squamish United Church is to be an inclusive community serving God’s world.  One of the ways we seek to meet that mission is through events and studies.   If you want to know about a current study group, event, fundraiser or activity you are on the right page.  If you are looking for ways to get more involved and are not sure how to do so please contact our office or go to our groups and committees page to see what we have to offer.  If you have a dream or vision for a new program that you would like to spark please contact the minister and we will see how it fits with the mission and vision of Squamish United Church.  We look forward to seeing you at our next event.



New Members Group

A new members group will be offered in May. If you are interested in participating and learning more about the United Church and Squamish United Church, how we got to where we are today, what do we actually believe, how do we get involved and more this group is for you. Please sign up in the entryway of the sanctuary and/or email Karen. Once we know the group we will try and set up a group time the works for everyone.

Men’s Breakfast – Saturday, April 28th – 8:30am  Cooking starts at 7:30am
This will be the last for the 2017-2018 winter season.  The last breakfast in March was well attended, fourteen of us came together at the Anglican Church hall. We enjoyed the time together and as usual had a good discussion and learning experience with the theme.
Donald Lawton will introduce the theme about suicide and euthanasia. It seems a ‘heavy” topic, but real to live. I would name the theme The Path of Descent. It is a theme more fitting before Easter but also is an ongoing process.  Location for the gathering is planned at Centrepoint; assuming the renovations are done.
Let me know how the 28th works for you and who will help with cooking and cleanup.  Looking forward to hearing from you.                     Walter Huber
