Remember…as things gradually open up and return to some semblance of normal, to continue to be careful, respectful, and calm.
Minister’s Update: Hi This is a little weird! I’m the new minister at Texada United Church but I’ve lived here with my husband, Ryk Allen (and dog, Squish) for five years. I hope over the next few weeks to be contacting people and getting to know some of you a little better. If you want to want to know more about the church, have any suggestions or ideas or just want to talk contact me ( email@example.com or 604-414-7309) and we can set up a time.
Blessings, Rev. Gayle Chouinard
Focus on Spirit! Every Sunday we publish a short reflection based on a scripture reading on our website with a link posted on the Texada Message Board. Check it out.
Worship Services The United Church in B.C. is still in Stage 1 which means that there are no worship services in the church because of the vulnerability of our congregations. We hope that we will be able to reopen for worship soon so don’t despair we will get there and will let you know via the Texada Message Board.
