United Church turns 90

To celebrate 90 years is to celebrate a long life, 90 years of hard work, prayerful worship and thoughtful learning.

Ninety years ago the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congretational churches united to form the United Church of Canada.

In the Boundary, St. Columba, Greenwood, Perley Memorial, Christina Lake and St. John’s United, Grand Forks, gathered on Sunday, June 14 in St. Columba to celebrate the event led by Rev. Kim Horwood.

The theme “Make a Joyful Noise,” included old and new hymns, a joint choir and ringing of bells, ending with a scrumptious pot luck lunch.

To celebrate 90 years is to celebrate a long life, 90 years of hard work, prayerful worship and thoughtful learning.

Let us ask for courage, energy and purposes, let us walk for wisdom, faith and guidance as we walk this road together.

We give thanks for 90 years of being a blessing in Canada and far beyond our shores.
